Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider

C5 Alliance are experts in licensing and the optimisation of your Microsoft estate

Driving sustainable cost reduction, asset optimisation and governance

C5 is the only Direct Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider in the Channel Islands and we are experts in licensing and the optimisation of your Microsoft estate.

The Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) programme enables C5 to sell Microsoft’s cloud services including Azure, Dynamics and M365 to its customers. This is much more than just a licensing programme, C5’s implementation of the CSP service enables us to add value to our customers’ cloud experience via support, billing flexibility, cost optimisation strategies and strategic licensing advice.

  • Cost Savings Icon
    Cost savings benefit

    C5’s CSP programme has saved some of our clients up to 25% on their Microsoft licenses. Our team of experts will review your current licensing and consumption expenditure using our expertise and propriety tools to recommend strategies to save money without impacting your users or cloud experience.

  • Savings and Optimisation Icon
    Ongoing savings and optimisation

    Over time we perform trend analysis and use bespoke tools to review your Microsoft licence usage and recommend optimisation strategies to reduce costs whilst maintaining the same level of service. We use security analysis tools to suggest improvements to your security posture to help improve your environment’s resilience.

  • Productivity Training

    We want you realise the full potential of your Microsoft licences. By joining our CSP programme your colleagues will be able to learn how to be more productive using Microsoft Business Applications. Our current C5 CSP offer can include an introductory training session with a key individual or team, helping them to improve how they use Microsoft 365.

  • Monthly Billing

    There are no up-front licensing costs unlike Enterprise Agreements or Open License Agreements, and you are not required to pay on a credit card. Each month C5 Alliance will invoice you for the previous month’s usage. This enables easy, convenient billing for you and your team.

  • Flexibility icon

    We have seen flexibility as one of the biggest benefits to customers. You only pay for what you want or use and are only billed on license usage. This enables you to expand or reduce your operations as and when you need it. In the case of Azure, you will simply pay for what you used the previous month, much like a phone bill. This gives you the flexibility to scale your usage whilst reducing costs.

  • Local Support

    As your Licensing Experts, we become your window to Microsoft and the point of contact in case of a problem, whether it be technical, billing or subscription support. We provide a blend of expertise and local knowledge of your environment. We also offer enhanced support-service offerings which complement the CSP programme. You will receive advanced partner support from Microsoft giving you an escalated service in the case of a problem.

  • Licensing Support

    The C5 CSP programme enables you to have one partner to look after all your Microsoft Cloud licences, providing you with consistency and convenience. We can also draw on our expertise and skills to ensure that you are maximising the benefits of your investment.
