Microsoft Nominated Partner of Record explained:
What it is and and how having a nominated partner can save your business time and money.
“One of the quickest and easiest ways that we are helping our clients at the moment to manage and maintain their Microsoft costs is to be nominated as their partner of record.
In simple terms, being a nominated partner of record informs Microsoft that you have instructed us at M247 to act on your behalf for all of your billing all over subscription management.
Key benefit that we see his cost reduction. We take ownership of the Microsoft bills, we pay them in a timely controlled manner, ultimately enables your finance team to save time, resource and energies, and focus them in other areas.
Our payment terms are net 30 days, a lot of our clients currently pay on a credit or debit card. What we’re able to do is pay for that on your behalf and then invoice you to payoffs.
Also I’ve seen examples where we’ve been able to help clients achieve 5% straight off the bat savings by offering them reserved instances.
Reserved instances are exactly the same as on demand. The only difference is the reserved instance you would rent for a fixed duration from ourselves.
We’re also able to help really unlock the power of the data provided by Microsoft, we would undertake regular cloud uses, analysis, etc. This is an absolute game changer for our clients, it helps to provide deeper insight into what the business is currently using, and where there are appropriate opportunities to optimise, to manage, and to maintain.
We run the correct reports and we provide you the analysis that you want to see, and as your partner of record and technology partner, it’s part of our role to make sure that you get the most of that investment.
Account management is part of the service, you would receive a dedicated account manager from M247, and they’re there to help you through all stages in all aspects of your cloud journey and ultimately help by being a trusted advisor to you and your business.
