Melbourne Microsoft partner Xello has announced it will spin out its SMB practice into a startup called Modex.
Modex will specialise in Microsoft 365 Business, helping small and medium-sized businesses by deploying and adopting the full solution end-to-end.
Xello, which rebranded from Dilignet last year, said Modex was founded to address the continuing restrictions of legacy IT systems in the SMB sector, and help them move to “a more modern experience”.
"We recognise there is a significant market opportunity and demand in the SMB segment to better leverage the full breadth of Modern Workplace capabilities offered in the Microsoft 365 Business solution,” Xello managing director and Modex director Peter Lillywhite said.
“We have launched the new Modex brand separate from Xello to focus on delivering small and medium businesses our unique modern experience, wrapped around the latest digital platforms in Microsoft 365 Business.”
Modex’s core offerings include Premium Modern Workplace, or its Microsoft 365 Business and cloud migration service, and Premium Modern Support, IT support with self-service online training and a knowledge database for customers.
“Today, workplace success depends on enabling teams to achieve more together. Our personal experience with technology often surpasses our experience at work because current IT just hasn’t kept pace with how we work,” Modex solutions director Bryan Chua said.
“We created MODEX to help businesses modernise and turn IT into a function that empowers. We want to make it easier for customers to connect all their employees, give them better tools to be more flexible and productive, and ultimately help them move towards an all-digital workplace.”
