IPSE teams up with Microsoft & leading domain registrar 123 Reg
IPSE members can now access market-leading web management tools and the entire Microsoft Office 365 suite at a discounted price, thanks to an exclusive new partnership with domain registrar 123 Reg, in partnership with Microsoft. Details can be found here.
123 Reg helps small businesses get online, create their first website and run it successfully, offering platforms and training with a particular focus on supporting micro-businesses. The full package also includes SEO and email marketing services with built-in spam and virus protection
Office 365 includes communication tools for networking, video conferencing and messaging, plus the capability to access Word, Excel and PowerPoint files from any device or location. Users will also receive 1TB of cloud storage.
IPSE members will receive a 25% discount on these services – a significant saving over the lifespan of a business.
Chris Bryce, IPSE CEO, said: “Many IPSE members are extremely tech-savvy, but expert help is always welcome – and a significant number of solo businesses still aren’t online at all. This new partnership will change that.
“It allows our members to access top of the range business tools and comprehensive web support from providers they can trust. They’ll now be able to spend less time and money on software, and that will be reflected in their bottom lines.
“This is just the latest in a number of IPSE’s partnerships aimed at giving our members access to the highest-quality products and services available.”
Kate Cox, 123 Reg Chief Marketing Officer, commented: “Ever since our inception fifteen years ago, we’ve always tailored our offering for UK small businesses. Alongside a growing portfolio of easy to use products designed for micro businesses, we have introduced ‘Online Business Training.’ This unique online learning platform offers breaks from traditional courses which are largely pitched at big companies with big budgets. We believe everybody should be able to put their business online – so IPSE are the perfect partners.
“I hope many IPSE members will take advantage of this opportunity and I’m looking forward to developing this relationship further.”
Alex Faupel, SMB Customer and Cloud Lead, Microsoft, said: “Every company, from global corporations down to the smallest microbusinesses, need dependable technology that’s available anywhere, anytime, to get the job done. Microsoft Office 365 gives IPSE members exactly that, at an affordable price.
“Freelancers tend to work on the move much more frequently than other kinds of workers so the ability to access files and data from anywhere in the world will be invaluable.”IPSE News
