I’ve just attained my first Microsoft Competency – what next?


So you’ve made the step up to the Microsoft Partner elite? Maybe to one of the updated Cloud Performance Competencies? Did you take advantage of our no-cost, in person and online training? Wherever you landed and however you got there - congratulations! You’re exactly where you need to be.

Don’t give the dust time to settle; supercharge your practice with three benefits you may not have been aware of (you’ve already deployed your internal use rights software, haven't you?):

Promote your status – download your Competency logo

Go to Partner Logo Builder to create and download custom logos that you can use to promote your Microsoft partner status and the competencies you’ve attained. The perfect addition to all marketing activities and email signatures:


Get listed on Pinpoint

Pinpoint provides an open marketplace for Microsoft partners and developers to promote and sell Microsoft technology solutions to customers, increasing their exposure to qualified leads. Your Competency status provides a search ranking boost – make the most of it!


Leverage your Partner Advisory Hours

Partner advisory hours are the currency used to access technical pre-sales and advisory services. Use your hours to build your skills and get customised guidance for deploying solutions. Silver partners receive an allocation of 20 hours, whilst Gold partners receive 50 hours.

Competency partner offer: receive Technical Pre-Sales assistance for deals worth over $3,000USD with no deduction from your advisory hour entitlement!


This is just a small sample of the benefits available to Competency partners. Get started today and don't let your unfair cloud advantage go to waste!
