Google launches Google Apps reseller program. Cloud computing going mainstream?
Today Google announced in a press release that they will be making cloud based Google Apps available for resale by IT resellers.
The Authorized Reseller program benefits include:
* owning the customer relationship and billing structure
* providing consulting, service management and end-user support
* receiving a recurring discount on the annual Google Apps licensing fee
* receiving marketing, sales and technical training from Google
IT resellers will be able to sell Google Apps such as the Google Apps Premier Edition suite of communication and collaboration tools including Gmail™, Google Calendar™, Google Docs™, Google Sites™, Google Talk™, and Google Video™ for business. Because all of the Google Apps are available on the cloud, working from home is easy for employees.
