    PowerObjects Builds New Sales Channel with the Microsoft Dynamics Marketplace


    A Blog Series for Microsoft Dynamics Partners by Christian Lindberg, Solution Sales & Marketing, Microsoft Dynamics Partner Team.

    After hearing about the Microsoft Dynamics Marketplace, an online lead generation tool that helps partners showcase and sell their best add-ons for Microsoft Dynamics, PowerObjects was quick to join.
