The Microsoft Customer Reference program needs your help. We want to work with you to expand the customer reference database so we can help you accelerate sales. The more we work together to expand our reference and evidence database, the more assistance we can provide with your next reference request, whether it is a reference call or names to add to a RFP or a slide of logos to demonstrate experience in a particular industry.
