What's your diary like for April? How about investing one of your spare days in training for you and/or colleagues on Office 365, with a focus on strengthening your customer conversations about the transformation from traditional desktop software to cloud-delivered software services?
On 28th April 2014, we’re hosting a Drumbeat Sales Readiness day for our partners’ sales & pre-sales teams at the Sydney Hilton. Selling Office 365 requires a new way of selling, so in addition to sharing Microsoft best practices, programs, and selling tools, we will also present insights into the cloud services market and the opportunity for partners who invest in growing an Office 365 practice.
There continues to be a fast adoption rate of Office 365 Education, with schools, TAFEs and universities opting to use Office 365 as the platform for many new services to their staff and students. The result is that opportunities are growing for Microsoft Education partners to deliver services to implement Office 365, and to add business value after implementation through integration, process simplification, and collaboration services.
It’s a free, full day event, that includes many different scenarios for Office 365, and will guide partners through the pre-sales conversations surrounding Office 365, that will help you to deliver the Microsoft solution with your implementation and ongoing services to help customers get the best value from their Office 365 deployment:
