Action plan

Together with you we devise an action plan to optimize your partnership with Microsoft and the distributor. First of all, we make a clear overview of your current situation.

A 4-step approach

Trough a four step program, Partner Care will be able to make a number of suggestions for improvement immediately. We then proceed to evaluate the knowledge and skills the MCPs already have and how this can be optimized. Subsequently, we look at what is sold and which rewards are or could be connected to this. After this, we look at how the customer service with regards to Microsoft products is set up. Partner Care offers 24/7 support for its customers. What we achieve is that the structure of the organisation maximizes the potential of the Microsoft Partner program. Now and in the future. 

We maximise the potential of your Microsoft Partner-program

Phase 1: Microsoft Administration

We always start with the Microsoft Administration – the so-called Health-Check – to optimize your most important Microsoft portals. We talk about topics like Microsoft Terms and Agreements, Microsoft Customer numbers, end-customers and distributors, your Partner Status, Business profile etc. We also give you a short insight into your competencies and make an estimation of your financial rewards within Microsoft. Goal is to get your administration back on track to be compliant with Microsoft guidelines.

Phase 2: Microsoft Training

Then we can move on to Microsoft training, exams and competencies. Here we look at your ambitions, your experience, your Microsoft Certified Professionals and give you a deep dive into the 20 different Microsoft competencies with the various exams and assessments. Microsoft is changing a lot in their competencies and we can help you figure the ones that are worth focusing on. Let’s boost your Microsoft knowledge together to secure or upgrade your Microsoft Partner status and Microsoft benefits. 

Phase 3: Microsoft Incentives

After having optimized your Microsoft administration and your Microsoft knowledge we want to make sure that all your efforts get rewarded. Therefore we’ll do a deep dive in the 35 Microsoft Incentive programs and make sure you participate in all of them and get most out of your Microsoft Partner Program. We’ll make sure you meet all the deadlines and support you also in case of verification or claims.

Phase 4: Microsoft Support

We also offer you extensive Support for Microsoft Partners. Through a single point of contact and in your mother tongue you can forward us all your Microsoft questions and questions that your end-customers forward you. From A-Z and 24/7. This way we reduce your time investment when looking for Microsoft information online or contacting the Microsoft Support desks. We have all the Microsoft experts for you!

5 Advantages of migrating to the cloud

The cloud. A hot topic in the IT industry. More and more companies are migrating to the cloud, because they understand that the cloud is not just a trend, but actually the future of our IT landscape. Furthermore, the cloud offers lots of advantages. Cloud services are easily defined, very cost-effective, and they help companies to be managed more efficiently and effectively. As a cloud reseller, you will also benefit from many advantages.

 

Why should you migrate to the cloud?

Before the cloud era, applications and software were physically downloaded onto computers or software, located in the building. It involved lengthy on-site operational processes. It also meant that companies were forced to make substantial investments with regards to hardware, software, and licenses. Furthermore, many employees nowadays want to be able to work flexibly. They want to work any time, any place, and from any device. Modern workspaces became important. Companies faced the challenge of creating modern workspaces. Thanks to the cloud, all these challenges are now in the past. A number of the main advantages of moving to the cloud are described below:

 

  1. Increased flexibility. The capacity of the cloud is easy to scale-up or scale-down, because the servers are located at an external cloud supplier. This makes cloud services the perfect choice for companies who require a growing or flexible bandwidth.
  2. Cheaper. Because your clients will no longer need to invest in their own servers, software, licenses, or heavy-duty hardware, the cloud is cost-effective. Furthermore, your client only pays for what they actually use.
  3. Increased efficiency. To your clients, the servers are out of sight and out of mind. Clients do not need to worry about them, because the cloud supplier manages regular software updates, including security updates. This means that clients will not need to waste any time keeping the system itself operational, and can instead focus on the optimization of their core business activities.
  4. Safer. Sensitive company data are no longer stored on laptops or hard discs, but are instead harboured in a secured data center. Cloud suppliers are constantly investing in cloud-based security systems and thanks to artificial intelligence vulnerabilities are tracked down and eliminated prematurely.
  5. More accessible. All that users need to be able to work, is an internet connection. Furthermore, cloud services contribute to increased team productivity. Thanks to cloud services, all stakeholders can open, work on, and share files securely, which enables them to work together more effectively.
