I have been with Microsoft since 2002, but I have been with Dynamics even longer, starting out with a Dynamics NAV partner in 1992. I currently lead the Partner Programs team in the US Dynamics organization and look forward to keeping in touch with the US Dynamics Partner Community on this blog.
Our worldwide Microsoft Dynamics marketing team passes along this news regarding the recent launch of the "Don’t Get Forced" 2.0 campaign on November 1, 2011.
Targeted at enterprise organizations (250+ PCs), the FY12 advertising campaign launched on Nov. 1, 2011 in the United States and will run through June 2012 with the goal of closing the awareness gap between Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Salesforce.com via competitive positioning.
The campaign kicks off with a series of vides highlighting competitive shortcomings. Additionally, the media plan will drive interest through interaction through mobile devices and social sites as well as through multiple digital properties and print publications.
Get familiar with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online campaign and talk with your customers about their CRM initiatives.
Use the Through Partner assets, based on the FY11 creative platform, available now on PartnerSource. These assets will be updated to reflect the new creative platform in December.
As of Monday, October 31, Zetadocs Express for Microsoft Dynamics NAV is available for download. This has also been announced on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV team blog.
Zetadocs Express for Microsoft Dynamics NAV offers document management functionality integrated with Microsoft SharePoint Online, a part of Microsoft Office 365.
Partners should download Zetadocs Express and include it in your pre-sales demonstration in order to show prospects how Microsoft Dynamics NAV can help them get control over all the documents they have to manage. Additionally, you can now offer integration to Microsoft Office 365 (using Microsoft SharePoint Online) to existing customer on a valid Business Ready Enhancement Plan.

Often we hear partners are challenged by the navigation associated with PartnerSource and other Microsoft websites to appropriately find the variety of resources we create to help them grow their business.
One of the biggest areas of improvement to fix is the dissemination of partner news & events. On the events front, I’m very excited to announce the launch of a new United States Microsoft Dynamics Partner Training & Events Calendar!
To enable partners to more efficiently navigate through the variety of upcoming partner training activities and events, we’ve consolidated everything into an easy to view calendar. Here you can locate a detailed agenda of various live events targeted at United States based partners for the next two months. Within each category find a brief description and registration details (if applicable).
Access the Training & Events Calendar on PartnerSource.
Training & Event Categories include:
Each month we’ll refresh the calendar to include information on the next two months’ upcoming events and activities.
