I am very excited to get a chance to connect with the Microsoft partners in the U.S. West Region again this week when I will be joining the Microsoft U.S. West Region SMS&P Team on Friday for their monthly partner call to present on a topic that I get questions on frequently, and used to get when I was back in the U.S. as well: “How can partners leverage annuity licensing and why should you look at Open Value or Open Value Subscription for this instead of the Open License program to make money for you and save money for your client?” In addition, I will be covering a promotion we have going on right now that is pretty exciting.
If you are a partner in the West Region (partners in the states of AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, MT, NV, NM, OR, UT, WA, and WY), are you currently attending the monthly calls held by the team? If not, take a look at what will be covered this Friday on the call:
- Welcome & Kickoff: Suzanne Lavine, Partner Territory Manager, SMB&D West Region
- Microsoft Office 2010 & Windows Intune: Ron Grattopp, Partner Solutions Technical Presenter–Join us for a discussion of why and how you want to be talking to customers about upgrading to Office 2010, and maybe learn an Office 2010 feature you didn’t know about in the process. Also we will give you an overview of Windows Intune which will hit GA (be in market) the week after this call – you definitely want to be in the know about this great new addition to our Online Services and how it can help you expand your business, revenue, and customer satisfaction!
- Making Money with Open Value and Open Value Subscription: Eric Ligman, Director Customer & Partner Experience, World Partner Group Microsoft
- Discover the Real Value of Open Value: Suzanne Lavine, Partner Territory Manager, SMB&D West Region– West Region SMB&D Open Value Spring Sales Incentive
