Linius Boosts Global Reach with Admission to Microsoft Co-Sell Program

Linius Technologies Limited – the only cloud-based solution that transforms static video into hyper-personalized video experiences with its world-first Video Virtualization Engine (VVE) – has been granted ‘co-sell’ status with Microsoft globally.

Microsoft sales teams around the world will be compensated for selling Linius solutions to Microsoft’s vast customer base and beyond. Microsoft account team members book 10 percent of the annualized revenue charged by Linius for any sale involving their customer accounts – regardless of the value of the Azure component involved.

Microsoft sales representatives and partners are incentivized and enabled to sell a range of Linius solutions, including: hyper-personalization solutions, services via Linius’ SaaS platform, and Linius’ upcoming self-deployable Search and Assembly Application.

Co-sell is a global status. Microsoft sales representatives worldwide can see that Linius is a co-sell partner in the AppSource and Azure Marketplaces.
