Microsoft Gear Up Sales Toolkit
The Microsoft Gear Up sales toolkit is the trusted sales reference guide used by Microsoft employees and partners worldwide to get essential, baseline information about Microsoft products, sales, licensing and services. Because you are using the same guide used by Microsoft employees, your customers will get consistent information they can rely on.
