Axienta is a leading technology solutions provider of Sales Force Automation with their brand VANTAGE currently holding 70% of the market share. Its list of clientele includes the Tier 1 blue-chip companies of Sri Lanka and Vietnam as well as selected SMEs.

The Microsoft’s IP Co-Sell program, a collaborative selling initiative launched to enable Microsoft and its partners to provide comprehensive solutions in an all-win collaboration globally, has now been utilised by Axienta. This further strengthens their long-standing relationship with Microsoft and fuels the company’s aggressive growth, innovation and expansion plans.      

Microsoft’s IP Co-Sell initiative offers eligible partners the unique opportunity to reach more customers and accelerate revenue through Azure Marketplace and AppSource, Microsoft’s cloud storefronts. The application built on modern technologies and hosted on Azure and other private clouds, is currently available in the Azure AppSource, which is slated as the go-to place for businesses looking for the best apps to drive growth, productivity, and profit.    

Axienta’s leading brand VANTAGE is now available on Microsoft AppSource and joins the elite group of global independent software vendors selected by Microsoft for intensive joint sales, support and go-to-market initiatives.

Microsoft Sri Lanka and Maldives Country Manager Hasitha Abeywardena explained, “There is a criteria defined for getting involved in the co-selling program, involving proven competency and capability, having the right type of employees with the appropriate experience and expertise, a commercial-ready solution, an engaged sales team, and a strong go-to-market strategy. Axienta has passed all these requirements and is therefore “Co-Sell Ready”. They were identified to partner with us based on the quality of their solutions and potential to solve real business challenges for our customers in improving their supply chains and sales team efficiencies. With the business value we see in their solution we look forward to a fruitful relationship.”  

Axienta President and CEO Manju Fernando added, “We are thrilled to Co-sell with Microsoft. We look forward to help organisations compete effectively by leveraging the VANTAGE platform, where organisations can get up to speed in their supply chain and upscale the capabilities of their existing sales teams with our solution. The VANTAGE model ultimately empowers and scales organisations to employ transformative technologies while staying focused on their core competencies. Together with Microsoft, we are currently working on exploring further business opportunities not only in Sri Lanka but also across the Asia Pacific region.”
