More Savings. No Annual Commitment. Sign Up for Microsoft New Commerce Experience (NCE) Today.
On September 1, 2022, Microsoft announced special Microsoft 365 promotional offers that help unlock new sales motions for partners.
By consolidating vendors or improving their security and productivity posture with a more premium product, Ingram Micro Cloud and Microsoft can enable partners to pitch how Microsoft 365 can help prospective and existing customers “do more with less”.
The SMB New Customer and Upsell Promo offers a low-risk Monthly Commitment with a 16.7% discount across any of the following products:
- Microsoft 365 Business Basic
- Microsoft 365 Business Standard
- Microsoft 365 Business Premium
- Microsoft 365 Apps for Business
- Microsoft Teams Essentials
- Microsoft Defender for Business
Promotion details: Get 16.7% off the NCE Monthly Commitment price throughout the duration of the promotion period for the above-mentioned products. This effectively equalizes monthly commitment pricing to annual commitment pricing during the promotional term.
Promotion Valid from September 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023: Promotional pricing will stop applying at the first monthly anniversary after June 30, 2023.
Who’s Eligible for This Promotion?
There are two types of customers who are eligible for this promotion:
- New customers purchasing Microsoft 365 for the first time
This promotion creates immediate cost savings both in product value and price point for new customers. It also allows customers and partners to retain the flexibility of a monthly commitment.
- Existing Customers upgrading to a more premium product and/or expanding their product portfolio
This promotion is a fantastic opportunity for partners to explore with their existing customers how upgrading to premium Microsoft products can save existing customers money.
What Happens at the End of the Promotion Period?
At the end of the promotional period, customers will automatically renew into Monthly Commitment at standard prices. Customers may be able to keep their subscription at the lower promotional pricing by transitioning from a NCE monthly commitment term to a standard NCE Annual commitment term.
Partners should decide with their customers whether an annual or monthly commitment makes sense based on customer need and credit risk. License upgrades and renewals can be scheduled in advance of the renewal date as well.
Act now before CSP legacy incentives expire on December 31, 2022!
