MarginPoint Recognized by Microsoft for Innovative Use of the Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform to Deliver Enterprise-Class Indirect Material Management Solutions
LAGUNA HILLS, CA (Oct. 14, 2014) – MarginPoint, a leading provider of cloud-based indirect material management solutions, today announced that its flagship MarginPoint 8 solution has been featured in a recent Microsoft case study for its innovative use of the extensive capabilities of Microsoft’s Azure Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by Microsoft for the innovative ways in which MarginPoint leverages the Microsoft Azure platform to deliver rich and scalable indirect material management solutions to our customers,” says Anand Rau, CTO of MarginPoint. “Microsoft Azure allows us to quickly scale to meet the growing needs of our expanding customer base without the need for significant upfront capital expenditures. This frees us to focus our efforts on helping customers solve their indirect material business challenges rather than getting distracted by managing the underlying infrastructure.”
In the case study, Microsoft highlights MarginPoint’s novel use of the Microsoft Azure platform to monitor and manage thousands of point-of-use industrial vending machines deployed across 400+ customers throughout North America.
“The MarginPoint 8 solution processes millions of transactions daily across our distributed network of internet-connected industrial vending machines,” says Vince Sheeran, CEO of MarginPoint. “Our partnership with Microsoft Azure enables this incredible level of scalability and gives us confidence that we can continue meeting the needs of all MarginPoint customers, present and future, regardless of size.”
