As your Microsoft partner, Maureen Data Systems (MDS) is here to help you stay up to date on the latest changes and updates to the CSP program so that you can take advantage of all available features, benefits, and opportunities.
Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program continues to evolve as they adapt to support the constantly shifting needs of today’s businesses. As part of their investment in the CSP program, Microsoft has been working to reduce licensing complexity and costs, as well as provide flexibility to support a range of client purchasing scenarios. To achieve this, Microsoft launched the New Commerce Experience (NCE) for Microsoft Azure in 2019 – and in fall of 2021 expanded NCE to include Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Windows 365, and Power Platform for commercial seat-based licensing.
The NCE Update Includes:
- Enforcement of no-cancellation policy. You can no longer cancel or reduce seats during annual term, only at renewal of term.
- New monthly subscription option. Customers, who require more flexibility to adjust seats may choose the new monthly term offers with a premium price.
- New options to manage subscriptions, including upgrading products and schedule upcoming changes for renewal.
- Easier to understand billing data and less administrative work.
Extending unlimited audio conferencing dial-in for Microsoft Teams included in Microsoft 365 E5 and Office 365 E5 now available with Microsoft 365 E3, Office 365 E3 / E1, Microsoft 365 F3 / F1, Office 365 F3, Microsoft 365 Business Basic / Business Standard / Business Premium, Government (GCC, GCCH, DOD): Microsoft 365 E3, Office 365 E3, Office 365 E1, Microsoft 365 F3, Microsoft 365 F1.
Available for purchase today, Microsoft New Commerce Experience (NCE) provides a simplified journey for both partners and customers to transact cloud services in a consistent and standardized purchase motion.
The New Commerce Experience (NCE) ‘per seat’ model for Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Windows 365, and Power Platform subscriptions is the latest in the evolution of their CSP program. It provides re-sellers with new tools to simplify and manage subscriptions.
Starting 2022, Microsoft will bring this purchase motion to seat-based offers like Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Power Platform and Windows 365.
Moving to the New Commerce Experience will help you prepare for future growth with reduced licensing complexity, multiple term options, and features that enable operational efficiencies.
