Wednesday, May 2nd “Introduction to Open License For Partners” - Microsoft offers two main Volume Licensing Programs for customers with between 3 and 150 PCs. These programs are the Open Business & Open Value Licensing Programs. Do you know how these work? What are the differences? Which should you choose for your clients? What are the advantages & disadvantages of each? Want to know the answers to these and more? Then attend this session, hosted by Eric Ligman - US Sr. Mgr. of Community Engagement at Microsoft, where we will discuss the two Open License Programs, how each of them works, and more.
Thursday, May 3rd “Open Value Rebates For Partners” - Are you taking advantage of the Open Value Rebates available to you as a Partner? That's right! As a Value Added Reseller, you are eligible to be receiving rebates back from Microsoft for every license you sell through Open Value. Also, Microsoft Small Business Specialist Partners are eligible for an additional rebate for every Small Business Desktop Advantage Agreement they sell. If you're not taking advantage of these programs already, you are just throwing money away. Stop tossing money away and join Eric Ligman, Sr. Mgr. of Community Engagement on the US Small Business Team @ Microsoft, for this 30 minute overview of these two rebate programs and find out how you too can be taking advantage of these exciting offers today!
Also, remember that every Thursday morning we run the “Small Business Desktop Advantage Sales Fourms” where you have a chance to learn more detailed information about the Small Business Desktop Advantage and ask your questions about it or a particular conversation you’ve had with your clients about it. About ½ of the session is presentation and the other ½ is left for live questions and answers with you, our Partners. Hosted by Eric Ligman - US Sr. Mgr. of Community Engagement at Microsoft or one of the 16 Microsoft Partner Community Managers from around the US.
