Cloud services distributor Giacom is making it easier for partners and their customers to manage and track cost reporting with the Microsoft Azure Cost Reporting Template.
This addition to its portfolio gives partners (and their customers) direct self-service access to billing data and customisable visualisation tools to help partners engage with their customers and forecast more effectively.
Rob Hancock, Lead Architect at Giacom, said: “In the current climate, we understand that cost management is a crucial point for our partners in building confidence around the services they are using. We therefore decided to leverage Microsoft’s Power BI to sync with our billing data and enable partners to use a reporting template to manage that cost data on a per-customer basis.”
Guy Gregory, Partner Technology Strategist at Microsoft, added: “Giacom has leveraged Microsoft’s cloud services to deliver a simplified experience for our reseller partners and mutual customers. As businesses accelerate their cloud adoption strategies, it’s vital that cloud spend across their organisations is well managed. In addition to our native Azure Cost Management dashboard, we welcome innovative, value-add solutions from partners like Giacom to help customers on their Azure migration journey.”
