Partnering with Microsoft allows you to deliver innovative products and services, access new markets and generate more customers. In combination with the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) – it’s the best business decision you can make.
A closer look at Action Pack
This week I feature the Action Pack tier of MPN membership. See my previous posts for an overview of the MPN and a look at Community membership, stay tuned for more on Competencies.
Action Pack is perfect for smaller Microsoft partners looking to take their business to the next level. With all the benefits of Community (including Office 365 subscription management tools and incentives, sales, pre-sales and technical training, ready-to-go marketing assets and a listing on Pinpoint), over $40,000 worth of internal use software, enhanced support options and access to the Action Pack Resource Centres, the $539^ annual fee represents more than an unfair cloud advantage – it’s practically criminal.
