Last week an announcement went on PartnerSource about our plans with Extender.
More information will come in the coming weeks about some of the processes related to existing customers and new sales for Extender. A few of the key points for everyone to be aware of for now:
Now to the more important question. Why?
Extender will still be a strategic differentiator and there is no reason to stop selling it. eOne’s plans with Extender will offer more. They will be sharing product vision to you and I believe you will like it. So, it’s basically change without change. You place an order with eOne directly instead of Microsoft.
This move reflects our commitment to Marketplace as the vehicle we use to help Partners promote and other Partners/customers discover and buy solutions that add value to our own products. On average every customer has around five ISV products and the marketplace is the forum we want everyone to use.
Now, go sell more GP.
