New Microsoft Business and Technology Assessment Toolkit launched

You may remember the Small Business Tech Assessment Toolkit that came out last year and received some great reviews by Partners.  Well, the new Microsoft Business and Technology Assessment Toolkit has just been released and includes some fantastic new features and information!


Here are just some of the highlights:


  • Easy installation and self-updating features.

  • New assessments that allow deeper evaluation of your customers’ server, mobile, and desktop needs and help you identify solutions using technologies based on Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2, Windows Mobile, the 2007 Microsoft Office system, and Microsoft Windows Vista.

  • A customizable question bank that allows you to tailor assessments to your customers’ specific needs.

  • A Windows-based platform that’s compatible with both Microsoft Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system.

There is also the “Assess and Win” promotion going on right now where you can win a free copy of SBS 2003 R2 Standard when you complete five technology assessments and submit them online.


Download your copy of the new Toolkit today.


Also, Mike Iem and I will be presenting a four-part webcast series around SBS and the Toolkit like we did with the Fast Track series last year.  The sessions are not posted on MS Readiness yet, but should be going live soon to register for.
