Software and IT Partner News

Microsoft is currently running a big discount on our Dynamics ERP software – up to 85% off – Five users for $3k. This is the one piece of software not available to Microsoft Partners for internal use unless you have a Dynamics ERP competency. If you are currently evaluating accounting software, or are struggling with QuickBooks, PeachTree or Deltek, now is the time to look at Microsoft Dynamics ERP. For more information on that promotion, visit the “Grow your Business” site. 

Step 1: Find how many seats you are eligible to receive
Go to the MPN site and click on your competency. Silver is the default.
If you are Gold Certified, you also need to click the word “gold”
Then scroll down to see a grid listing ALL ‘competency specific benefits with regard to MPN licenses’.
This is also a great section of the MPN site, if you take about 10-15 min to browse through the tabs shown in the screen shot below, it will list your software benefits for internal use
Step 2: Get access to your CRM Licenses
To get access, MPN partners have to sign up for the Cloud Essentials program:  From this landing page, click “Enroll Now” shown here:
Once enrolled, sign up for a regular 30 day trial.
Then call customer service to have them activate you for a “MPN partner subscription”. 

Note: I understand that sometimes issues happen when customer service activates you as MPN partners. Please escalate issues to your local Microsoft CRM Online team if you are experiencing challenges. (Andrew Winters if the partner is in MidAtlantic or any of Dan Jones’ Direct Reports if outside MidAtlantic – your local Microsoft contact can look this up for you).
Step 3: Implement Microsoft CRM
Certified CRM Partners around the U.S. offer an accelerated program for MPN Partners looking to be self-sufficient on Microsoft CRM.  Innovative Solutions, for example, offers a CRM boot camp that condenses Microsoft’s six day boot camp into two days and then focuses the 3rd/4th days on building out an individually’ designed solution together.  If you want to implement it yourself, it is a good fit. 
Check out Microsoft Partner Business Systems (PBS) – a professional services solution, integrated with Microsoft products including CRM 2011, SharePoint, and Outlook that lowers the cost of implementation and training and differentiates your business in the Microsoft Partner Network. There is a free template you can download to start.

No matter what industry you are in delivering a successful business initiative requires a strong command of four key business skills:•Business Operations: a solid understanding of workflow process and ROI (return on investment).•Marketing: the ability to identify and reach a target market with an effectively motivating message.•Technology: the technical skills to harness the most effective technologies for business process automation.•Branding: the ability to encapsulate all of the above factors within a unified vision that resonates with the target customer and builds loyalty.Because it only takes weakness in one of these areas to undermine what would have otherwise been a successful enterprise, Jack Frost Design has taken the unusual step of including each of these areas of expertise in a single company. It a unique approach. It has been successful for 40+ years.
