Sell S&EDPS engagements

​Successful technology partners excel in three areas: sales, deployment and adoption. It's a continuous cycle. Partners who can sell the business value, deploy the technology smoothly, and help their customers adopt the new tools will be more likely to get repeat business in the future.

Resources to help partners sell

This section contains materials that can help you:
  • Speak to the value of the latest messaging and communications solutions including Microsoft Exchange, Skype for Business, Exchange Online Protection, Exchange Data Loss Prevention and Office 365 Online Services by defining benefits of adoption in terms that will be relevant to your customers.
  • Ready your client to deploy Microsoft solutions through S&EDPS by articulating the importance of deployment planning.
  • Describe how S&EDPS is the most cost-effective way to receive expert advice on implementation through a benefit that the customer already owns.


Use these materials to build your list of customer engagement opportunities, and to show the business value other Microsoft customers have achieved through adoption of Microsoft Exchange, Skype for Business, and Online Services.

Remember, having the cost of planning an implementation offset by the Planning Services program can be the key incentive to move a customer to deploy.
