Yesterday morning during the keynote presentations at Worldwide Partner Conference, the pricing, packaging and partner compensation details about Microsoft Online Services were announced. The Microsoft Online Services that were announced are:
The suite will be available for $15 per user, per month (U.S.). Customers can also subscribe to each service independently.
In addition to these online services, we also announced:
The Deskless Worker Suite will be available for $3 (U.S.) per user, per month. Customers can also subscribe to each service independently.
As with our other Microsoft solutions, Microsoft Online Services will not only offer new solutions and benefits to customers, they will also create new markets and opportunities for our Microsoft Partners. Partners will have new opportunities to migrate, combine and customize Microsoft Online Services. In addition, partners that sell Microsoft Online Services will receive a recurring revenue stream for as long as their customer subscribes to the services. Partners that sell the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite, Deskless Worker Suite or any of their components receive 12 percent of the first-year contract price and 6 percent of the subscription fee ongoing. This can translate into 18 percent of the subscription value in the first year of the partner’s relationship with the customer.
Here are links to where you can find more information about these solutions and opportunities:
