How Azure CSP licensing helps organisations like yours
Microsoft Azure gives you the foundation for truly agile computing, moving costly and resource-heavy workloads into the cloud and giving you the freedom to add, remove and refine services as your organisation requires. But making the most of Azure’s vast potential can require more attention and effort than you may be able to give.
For small and mid-sized organisations, a CSP account for Azure can be the easiest way to license Microsoft’s cloud services. Underpinning our managed Azure service, CSP licensing allows you to provision the right services at the right time using our bespoke tooling, ensuring you can manage, secure and optimise your Azure resources and spend. Choose Content+Cloud for CSP licensing and you’ll benefit even further through reductions to costs of our managed services.
More than 80% of small and mid-sized organisations we work with on Microsoft cloud services are taking advantage of Azure CSP. If you’re a larger enterprise, we can also help you get the same streamlined approach to Azure services through Enterprise Agreements and Microsoft Customer Agreements. No matter how many Azure services you license, you’ll be able to pay simply through one invoice.

To deliver Tier 1 support, we must meet the quality standards set by Microsoft itself. You’ll benefit from the highest level of Azure management and prioritised resolution with Microsoft where required.
Clearer billing and payment through your Azure CSP account
Your CSP account for Azure makes your costs easy to understand and manage. Using our billed monthly, pay-as-you-go model, you’ll only ever pay for the services you use in your subscription. We’ll also allocate you a dedicated account manager who’ll make sure your Azure costs are always clear and predictable.
As circumstances change, Azure CSP licensing allows you to react quickly and smoothly. Subscriptions can be cancelled and there’s no minimum commitment. You can also take advantage of our additional technical management options to help you leverage opportunities for spending reduction as part of your ongoing Azure strategy.
Streamlined access to services and support
Managing your Azure subscription couldn’t be simpler. You’ll have access to our service management portal which gives you the autonomy to deploy, monitor and manage Azure resources securely and compliantly.
Our award-winning service desk provision gives you 24/7 support for any technical issues that may arise. And should there be a problem that needs to be escalated to Microsoft, you can leave that to us to resolve and if necessary, escalate through our Tier 1 Azure CSP Microsoft partnership
