Pax8 Enhances Private Vendor Portfolio

Cloud marketplace Pax8 announced a strategic initiative to fast-track the onboarding of private offer vendors to its line card to support specific industry verticals. The program aims to help managed service providers (MSPs) build a comprehensive solution stack to target new markets, Pax8 said.

These emerging vendors are often only available on hyperscaler marketplaces, Pax8 said in a statement.

Through its advanced integrations with hyperscaler marketplaces, Pax8 optimizes private offer vendors by streamlining procurement and onboarding processes, expediting market entry. All applications undergo strict validation tests to ensure quality and efficacy before becoming available, Pax8 said. The private offer vendors currently on the Pax8 Marketplace are complimentary to Microsoft’s suite of products, making it easy for partners to incorporate them into their solution stack. Additionally, the industry-tailored messaging and curated content available through the program empower partners to expand their services and enhance customer loyalty, according to Pax8. 

Today, partners can access MailGuard 365 and Solgari Contact Center through the Pax8 Marketplace, while officeatwork, Zoho, and many other private offer vendors will be available in the months ahead.

“Pax8 continues to seek innovative ways to empower partners with cutting-edge solutions to help them boost productivity, foster collaboration, optimize efficiency, and penetrate new markets in today’s rapidly evolving IT landscape,” said Nikki Meyer, Corporate Vice President of Vendor Experience at Pax8. “By expanding our solution offering to include private offer vendors, our partners can reach new customer segments and deliver a holistic end-to-end solution stack. Additionally, having access to our partner community provides the vendors with a faster route to market, accelerating their revenue growth.”

Pax8 runs a cloud-based marketplace that allows MSPs and channel partners to source various SaaS applications and business services. Pax8 recently added the CYRISMA risk management platform and Rewst's robotic process automation solution to its marketplace. Earlier this year, CrowdStrike and Malwarebytes were added to the company's offerings.
