Microsoft Licences - Cloud Solutions Provider

Microsoft Licences with Advanced Support - No Extra Charge

ACME UC is a Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP), as such we will work in partnership with any existing IT provider that you have, or we can provide you with Microsoft licences.

All of the licences we provide, we provide Advanced Support for via our helpdesk.  We do this at no additional cost to the standard Microsoft retail prices, as we will earn incentives from Microsoft, so we don't feel it's correct to charge you again for support on those licences.

If you have buy direct, your business has to provide 1st line IT support and then purchase support directly from Microsoft for escalation. With a CSP we become your 1st and 2nd line point of contact for the service, and already have a built-in escalation agreement (advanced support) to Microsoft for additional support, at no cost to you.

These incentives Microsoft pays it's qualified partners, either as the Transactional Partner or Record (TPOR), or where we have engaged in consulting and deployment activities by Claiming Partner of Record (CPOR) or Digital Partner of Record (DPOR).

Where we are providing Managed Services we would normally ask to provide the licences at the same time, this allows us the fastest and most direct access to the vendor rather than going through your existing IT supplier arrangements.

The Partner Admin Link (PAL) is key for our support access and for Microsoft to recognise that we are part of your IT delivery.
