Our guest speaker today is a Partner Technical Specialist in the US SMB Team, Craig Crescas.  He helped develop a lot of the content for the morning event and is presenting.  I asked him to write some thoughts on the first event we had in Dallas.

 

An update from the US SMB field team – get excited about Dynamics GP!

Last week, in Dallas, was the first event of an 8-city tour titled Dynamics GP NOW and NEXT. As one of the co-presenters at these events, it was extremely exciting for me to witness the tremendous support, attendance from both our partner community along with our product management and development teams. In fact, we had 8 Microsoft team members in the room and sharing the stage.

 What makes this event so unique was providing partners with content and product direction that is new. This, combined with your H1 sales results, we continue to prove our strong foothold in SMB.

 

Why should you attend?   The partners who attended Dallas walked away with answers to lingering questions about the short-term and long-term future of our respective businesses. More importantly, they gobbled up the sales and marketing content my team has developed in the last 6 months. If you haven’t seen this content, sign up. You won’t be disappointed.

 Who should attend?  With the two distinct sessions & topics, I strongly encourage anyone selling, presenting or marketing Dynamics GP attend the morning session beginning at 9:00 am. The partners in Dallas rated the morning
session very high and agreed the new sales resources would positively impact their sales processes immediately.

 While anyone can stay for both sessions, the afternoon session went deep, deep, deep. It was clear the sales and marketing people were lost when the senior developers began showing how we’ve improved the deployment
and management of the web client. Then again, so was I!  The afternoon is geared toward consultants and developers.

 I hope to see as many more enthusiastic Dynamics GP community members as possible at these events.
