CoreView | July 11, 2022
CoreView, the global leader in Microsoft 365 Management, today announced the expansion of its business operations in Australia, aimed at strengthening the company’s partnerships with clients in the Asia-Pacific market and responding to increasing demand in the region. This announcement comes in conjunction with the hiring of Chris Lawley as Regional Manager — an expert in SaaS platforms and technology, currently based in Sydney.
This expansion comes on the heels of a period of rapid growth for the company, as CoreView has grown by nearly 229 percent in the last 3 years — taking its mission to manage the chaos of Microsoft 365 to a variety of new partners and regions. In tandem with this growth, CoreView has continued to help customers better manage Microsoft 365 — including adding advanced capabilities for managing Microsoft Teams, Teams Voice, and hybrid environments.
“I am beyond excited to help introduce and expand CoreView’s presence in Australia and the wider APAC region,” said Lawley. “There is such a clear need for a data- and insights-driven management solution like CoreView, particularly given how heavily regulated security and compliance are in this market. As such, I have no doubt that CoreView will provide a number of benefits to our current and future partners here, helping uplevel IT management in the Microsoft 365 space.”
Already working with resellers in North America, Europe and the Middle East, CoreView also recently signed strategic deals with Data3 and rhipe — a Crayon Company — leaders in cloud solutions and technology in Asia-Pacific — with a healthy pipeline of additional relationships and deals lined up. As the premier Microsoft 365 management solution, CoreView’s goal is to empower partners with the data, insights, and actionable processes necessary to support operational improvements and enable real transformation for customers.
CoreView stops the chaos and gets Microsoft 365 under control. The CoreView Microsoft 365 Management Platform helps IT teams get the full value from Microsoft 365, gain full oversight of their environment, and move at full speed.
