Microsoft has tied up with Mahratta Chamber Of Commerce Industries & Agriculture (MCCIA), an industry body in Maharashtra, to boost its IT sales among SMBs.
Genie InfoTech, a Microsoft partner, has registered a 150 percent growth in business in the last 12 months in the cloud computing area especially Office 365. GITPL aims to extend this success to more SMBs in Maharashtra.
Niraj Prajapati, CEO of GITPL said: “We look forward to working closely with SMBs and help them drive efficiency with Microsoft Office 365.”
“Our concern over reliability, security and availability of cloud-based solutions is a thing of the past. This new approach allows us to focus resources on our core competencies and service customers better,” said Yogesh Shah, director of iResearch Services.
A recent study by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) found that if more SMBs in India adopt the latest IT tools, there is potential for this sector to grow revenues by $56 billion and create as many as 1.1 million new jobs.
“By using cloud computing, SMBs can focus on their core business priorities and not spend time building in-house IT infrastructure,” said Manohar Hotchandani, director, Business Development, Microsoft India.
