As a CloudBlue company, UK-based HBS will independently operate HarmonyPSA, to serve customers around the world. Launched over a decade ago and with customers in 15 countries, the platform features multi-language support and enjoys one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry. It was purpose-built to manage any type of service by unifying sales, operations and finance functions. HarmonyPSA combines CRM, ticketing, storefront, lead generation, assisted sales, and vendor competency and incentive programs into a single solution as a quote to cash and accounting system. It is now available for the first time on the UK Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.

Resellers will have a dedicated instance to quickly find and procure hardware and software, pay-as-you-go and recurring subscription cloud technologies across various online marketplaces, including Ingram Micro Online and Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace. HarmonyPSA automates the billing process and provides accurate, real-time views of customers’ contracts, projects and profitability.

“The acquisition of Harmony is a direct response to our MSP partners’ requests to help them quickly transform and grow a cloud services business with less risk,” said Nimesh Davé, president of CloudBlue and Ingram Micro Cloud. “We are delighted to have the Harmony team join our CloudBlue community as we expand our technology offerings.”

“We’re extremely excited to join the CloudBlue family to capitalize on our shared commitment of driving growth for our customers,” said Steve Powell, co-founder and CTO of Harmony Business Systems. “By working together, we will dramatically scale our customer base and expand our offering across various marketplaces.”

Stephen Robitaille, director of sales operations at intlx Solutions and a customer of HarmonyPSA, is enthusiastic about the platform's ability to automatically create purchase orders and generate unique reports that track project profitability on all aspects of the business. "It's made my work much easier and our business much more efficient."
