They also transact over $500k of Azure consumption and influence millions of Office 365 seats worldwide. Despite this – Microsoft was unaware of their impact and future value.

The brief:

With acquisition injecting fresh investment into the business, Exclaimer wanted to make best use of its funds to drive the next phase of business growth. This led to the retention of ResourceiT to help establish Exclaimer’s channel business and build a profitable partnership with Microsoft.

The approach:

Based on our experience of supporting ISVs including Sitecore, Mimecast and BinaryTree in achieving similar objectives, we began by identifying the ideal partner type and devising a channel development strategy to recruit, onboard and jointly go to market with the partners.

Alongside this, we worked with Exclaimer to create their Microsoft Value Proposition and identify key stakeholders.


  • Exceeding channel target each month by 20%

  • 40% growth YOY - in turn creating the need to recruit a partner team

  • Created their OCP catalogue listing and launched their co-sell content to Microsoft sellers

  • Showcased at Inspire

  • IAMCP Partner of the Year finalist

Without ResourceiT’s assistance, it would have taken Exclaimer significantly more time to build our channel strategy and Microsoft relationship. They have rapidly sped up our time to market.
