Partners get 250 free seats of BPOS (Exchange, SharePoint, Live Meeting, Office Communicator) for internal use!

Did you know that as a partner who registers to resell Microsoft Online Services, AKA BPOS (Business Productivity Online Suite), one of the benefits is 250 free seats for internal use? This comes in handy especially if you are paying another vendor for web meeting, email or a collaboration solution. This also comes in handy as your internal deployment can be your first deployment for your technical team to get familiar with the Microsoft cloud solution. It also potentially gets your sales team familiar with the solutions and a platform to demo to their prospective clients!
