Some great news to start the New Year!
Microsoft has announced that the CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) programme 4% EU Accelerator – originally confirmed only for the period July to December 2016 – is to be maintained for the next 6 months, to the end of June 2017.
Any partner selling via CSP, with an active Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) ID and on the Microsoft Managed Partner List (MPL) will continue to earn 12% (8% global incentive + the 4% EU accelerator) and which will be paid as 100% rebate in August 2017.
For Vuzion partners, this margin will continue to be earned on top of the up-front discount applied across all CSP licences with Vuzion, including for Office 365, Azure, Skype for Business, Power BI, EM+S (Enterprise Mobility + Security), and associated add-on CSP licences.
For example, with Vuzion’s 18% up-front margin for Dynamics, partners would continue to make a 30% margin off the core Microsoft service – and that’s before factoring in further additional profit available from incorporating their own value-add professional services, managed services or applications.
Michael Frisby, Vuzion MD, says, “It’s great to see Microsoft continue to invest in the channel, supporting partners in helping customers move to the cloud.
“This also shows Microsoft’s commitment to the CSP programme and support for the transition of resellers from the historic Advisor programme in to CSP.”
