“Customers first” is the mantra of any successful business, and as Microsoft partners, you are the connection between customers and Microsoft. The Microsoft Partner Network offers support benefits and paid support options to help you delight your customers with the Microsoft-based solutions you build, sell, and deliver.
Partners with a Microsoft Action Pack subscription or a Microsoft Partner Network competency receive technical benefits, customised presales assistance, and training as a benefit. Take advantage of the technical resources available to you to differentiate your business and accelerate sales, deployments, and customer usage of Microsoft cloud and hybrid solutions.
PREPARE TO SELL WITH PERSONALISED EXPERT TECHNICAL GUIDANCE
Partners with a silver or gold competency in the Microsoft Partner Network can request one-on-one consultations with Microsoft experts and receive technical guidance for these activities that take place prior to finalizing a sale:
- Proof of Concept
- Business value proposition
- Product feature overview and comparison
- Request for Proposal (RFP)
- Technical licensing recommendations
Partners that have used these services have found that they gain a competitive edge in Microsoft cloud solution sales and can shorten both the overall sales cycle and deployment times after the sale.
BUILD YOUR TECHNICAL TEAM'S SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE
Whether you are getting started with a new product or technology or focusing on customer scenarios, use your technical training benefit to build your team's presales technical skills and deployment skills.

The technical training webcasts can help you:
