In 1986, seminal punk/hip-hop group the Beastie Boys issued fans a call to arms to fight for their right to party. Now all grown up, it’s not inconceivable that the remaining members’ priorities have changed to something more… productive. Fortunately, Microsoft Partner Network members need not fight for this right, with Internal Use Rights (IUR) access to Microsoft products and services a core benefit for Action Pack and Competency Partners, productivity is there for the taking. Read on to learn more about your entitlements and how you can make the most of them (placards not required).
Internal Use Rights Software Entitlements
All Action Pack and Competency Partners are eligible for IUR to run their business, including Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Intune, Windows 8.1 (and soon Windows 10), Windows Server + CALs and much more (learn about Microsoft Partner Network membership).
- Action Pack
- Silver Competency
- Gold Competency
Aside from the efficiencies earned through running your business on the latest technology - be it a reduction in CAPEX / OPEX, the ability for internal dev and test or productivity gains for staff. Microsoft research has also shown that Partners who utilise their IUR sell approximately 3x larger deals than those who don’t – that’s a party earned in my opinion!
