Office 365 Things You Need To Know: Internal Use Rights


Tim Tetrick

As we kick off the blog series this month on Office 365 Things You Need To Know , I first want to make sure that as Microsoft Partners you are taking full advantage of your Internal Use Rights benefits.

Microsoft Partners receive Internal Use Rights (IUR) licenses for Microsoft software and online services as a membership benefit of Microsoft Action Pack and Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) competencies . These licenses can be used for internal productivity and collaboration, demonstration, development and testing, as well as for internal training purposes. The IUR benefit also comes with the added flexibility of being able to choose on-premises, online services, or any combination in between, plus the ability to change this at any time.

Here are the license grants you get for Office 365 across Action Pack and Silver and Gold competencies.


You may have heard it said there is no better way to sell Microsoft products and services than to use Microsoft products and services on a daily basis to run your business.  And it is absolutely true!  Here are just some of the benefits of utilizing your Internal Use Rights.
