interworks.cloud enables CSPs, MSPs and ISVs to start their own cloud business by publishing a custom-branded Marketplace for their customers or resellers, boost their sales and fully automate billing, ordering, payment and support processes for cloud services. With interworks.cloud, IT service partners become more efficient cloud solution providers.

Through the partnership between IndependenceIT and interworks.cloud, IT service providers gain access to cloud-based workspaces, including cloud applications and cloud desktops, as part of the interworks.cloud marketplace. The offering features much higher levels of automation and orchestration than alternative approaches and eliminates deployment and management cycles spent on the service configuration and delivery. The seamless tie-in with the interworks.cloud marketplace offers an easy to understand and use interface for service deployment.
