Independent consultants don’t usually sell the Microsoft software or licenses, but they provide deep knowledge about how to setup and use the accounting/ERP software. They often work in conjunction with the customer’s partner of record (POR) to provide a additional level of support.
But many of them are not signed up as a Microsoft partner and don’t have their access to the PartnerSource Business Center or their own GP Registration keys.
So this article is a public service announcement targeted at Independent Consultants who are not yet signed up as Microsoft partners.
It is time to get signed up, it’s free and simple to do.
Step 1: Join the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN)
Go to https://partner.microsoft.com/en-us and click the Become a Partner link and follow the instructions.
Once you are signed up as a partner and have an MPN ID, you can proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Sign up as a Microsoft Dynamics Partner
Go to the link below and download the Microsoft Dynamics Partner Registration Agreement (PRA) form (standard version)*. Once the form is completed, send it to the email or postal address for your region listed in the Exhibit A section at the end of the document.
* Download the ISV version if you are an ISV wanting to sign up as a Microsoft Dynamics Partner.
An added bonus of signing up is that once you have a PartnerSource Microsoft Account Number and Site Name, and your own GP Registration keys…. you can now sign up with Winthrop Development Consultants as a partner and receive NFR (Not for Resale) keys for our products and a 15% margin on any sales/renewals you make.
Hope this information is useful.
