July 10, 2020
Orlando, Fla. – OneRail, an Orlando-based final mile delivery orchestration and fulfillment platform, announced its acceptance into the Microsoft for Startups immersive program today. Microsoft for Startups is an exclusive program that provides qualified B2B startups with technology and business enablement resources to help rapidly build products and accelerate business growth, while providing opportunities to sell as part of the partner ecosystem and alongside Microsoft sellers.
“When startups and enterprise companies work together, innovation scales rapidly,” said Founder and CEO of OneRail, Bill Catania. “That is why we are excited and looking forward to working alongside the stellar Microsoft sales team to co-sell our services. This opportunity gives us access to a huge global sales force.”
OneRail will benefit greatly from working one-on-one with a Microsoft engineer to better architect, design, implement, and grow its tech stack. Membership into the program also includes access to free Microsoft Azure credits, enterprise grade unlimited 24×7 technical support, development tools, and Azure Marketplace onboarding support.
“One of the most difficult aspects of any tech startup is scaling,” said Mo Cheema, Director of Product Development at OneRail. “Working directly with a Microsoft engineer will help us ensure we are utilizing industry best practices to develop rapidly without incurring technical debt.”
Since Microsoft for Startups first launched two years ago, Microsoft says this program is on pace to close over $1 billion in sales opportunities for its startups through its co-sell program. Currently, it supports over 3,000 startups in more than 140 countries that are largely focused on enterprise tech.
“We are pleased to help OneRail innovate and scale their business with the use of Microsoft Azure,” said Phillip Friedman, Senior Director, Microsoft. “Microsoft for Startups is committed to working closely with startups to provide our extensive network of sales, marketing and technical resources and support.”
OneRail’s technology platform and market approach have been met very positively by the Courier ecosystem as the company has grown to over 100 courier entities with a footprint over 4M individual drivers. With coast to coast coverage in the US, OneRail Logistics Partners can handle a range of delivery sizes from small packages to big and bulky items. Fleet assets range from sedans to large box trucks with a range of services including white glove installations.
