Last week I had the pleasure of meeting with several Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online partners at Convergence 2015 to hear firsthand of the business problems they experience in growing their practices. While the challenges varied based on the type of partner, there was a common theme across them all…
 
How can Microsoft help enable my partner organization to successfully compete, perform higher quality deployments and avoid common deployment pitfalls?
 
Partners were elated to learn that there are services available to address their challenges – and that those services can be accessed as part of the Microsoft Partner Network technical benefits.
 
 
In last month’s blog, I had the opportunity to illustrate the business value partners experience when they consume their MPN technical benefits. Today, I want to showcase the real-life scenarios your consultants may experience along with the complementary services available to help enable them win more deals, perform faster and higher quality deployments, and resolve specific product issues.
