Pax8 Acquires Bam Boom Cloud

The news is out: Bam Boom Cloud has joined Pax8, the world’s leading marketplace for cloud solutions! We couldn’t be more excited about this next chapter in our business journey – read on to find out about Pax8 and what the news means for Bam Boom Cloud and its customers.

Who are Pax8?

Pax8 was founded in 2012 with the goal of simplifying how partners buy, sell, and manage cloud solutions, and empowering partners to achieve more with cloud technology. John Street, Pax8 co-founder and CEO, realised there was a glaring need for a modern distribution channel for cloud IT service providers.

Today, Pax8 operates on a global scale, and the company has developed a strong reputation as a disrupter in the market with a passion for doing things differently– much like Bam Boom Cloud.

Pax8’s methods of consolidated billing, automated provisioning and industry-leading PSA integrations are just some of the reasons why they stand out in the market. They provide their partners with responsive support alongside the product knowledge and education they need to grow their business.

Ranked in the Inc. 5000 for five consecutive years — #68 in 2018, #60 in 2019, #111 in 2020, #164 in 2021, and #552 in 2022 — as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the US, Pax8 has displaced legacy distribution by connecting the channel ecosystem to its award-winning cloud marketplace.

Why do Pax8 want to work with Bam Boom Cloud?

Both Pax8 and Bam Boom Cloud share a vision to revolutionise business with cloud technology. Both companies are also very closely aligned in terms of culture and values so it really is a perfect fit.

The acquisition creates a new market opportunity for Pax8’s partners to easily add new lines of business services offerings by leveraging Bam Boom Cloud’s expertise in Microsoft Dynamics. Our fixed-price, fixed-scope approach to selling and implementing Business Central makes it so much simpler for partners to add Dynamics to their portfolio.

Bam Boom Cloud’s wider skills and knowledge in enabling businesses to grow digitally will also provide huge value in supporting Pax8’s global growth.

Why is this such an exciting step for Bam Boom Cloud?

One of the goals at Bam Boom Cloud has always been global expansion and joining forces with Pax8 takes us one step closer to reaching that goal.

With the speed at which Pax8 has been growing coupled with their focus on enabling Microsoft partners to reach their goals, it made complete sense for us to join the team and help propel their Microsoft Dynamics offering.

We are excited for Bam Boom to join Pax8 to scale our technology solutions to the channel ecosystem. Pax8 will enable us to expand our reach and help more businesses grow with Microsoft Dynamics 365.

- Vicky Critchley, CEO of Bam Boom Cloud

We can now enable Pax8 partners with new business opportunities and help extend the reach of their pre-and post-sales support through our established operations team.

What does it mean for Bam Boom Cloud’s customers?

We want to reassure our customers that there will be very little change, and Bam Boom Cloud will continue business as usual – the same awesome people, the same great service and the same passion for helping small businesses grow. Our primary goal is to ensure that this news only positively impacts our customers and partners, and we can’t wait to share with you the exciting new opportunities that this acquisition will open up.

Our Derby HQ isn’t moving either, and we remain committed to growing our presence in Derby, continuing to invest in local talent, and helping support our wider local community as part of Pax8.

What’s going to happen to Bam Boom Cloud’s pandas?

Don’t worry, the pandas are staying for now, and they will enjoy a long and happy retirement when the time is right.
