Action Pack moves your cloud business forward

Sell approximately two times more cloud volume than network members1 when you utilize cloud benefits as an Action Pack partner. Run your business with speed and agility for $400 per year when you use a robust set of Microsoft software. Additional benefits:

  • Use world-class developer tools to create applications and solutions for your customers on iOS, Android, Linux, and Windows
  • Includes ten Windows 10 Enterprise (upgrade) licenses, three Visual Studio Professional licenses, and a no-cost Visual Studio Team Services account
  • Get up to ten Office 365 (E3) seats, plus five seats of Enterprise Mobility Suite and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Professional2
  • Receive US$100 of Microsoft Azure credits per month

1 This data is accurate as of December 15, 2015. We compared the average Office 365 cloud sales per partner in the previous 12 months between Action Pack partners and Network members that use Office 365 internal use rights.
2 Action Pack partners initially receive five seats of Office 365. Partners will receive five additional seats when they sell at least 25 seats of Office 365 within the previous 12 months. Partners receive five seats of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online when they sell at least 50 seats of Office 365 or five seats of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online within the previous 12 months.

Thanks to Microsoft Action Pack, we can develop in the latest Microsoft technology. Action Pack helps us to evolve our company constantly, optimizing costs to develop by using our internal use rights benefits.
