Operators are standing by!

If your organization has been waiting for just the right time to invest in the latest Microsoft software, your wait may be over. Through the end of this year qualified purchases of many of Microsoft’s most popular products are now eligible for significant savings that will be paid out in the form of Partner Subsidies. These Partner Subsidies may then be used to pay for additional goods or services provided by your Microsoft Partner.

One of the things that is new this time around is the addition of the Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online cloud services to the list of eligible products. For the first time, when you sign up for an annual subscription of these offerings you can earn Partner Subsidies for each seat of Online Services to which you commit.

Products must be purchased by December 31, 2011 to be eligible for this promotion. For more details on the promotion and what products are included call Simplex-IT at 234.380.1277, or email

Dateline Thursday, June 03, 2010 –I just participated in a Microsoft sponsored event, TechNet Events Present: Launch 2010 Highlights, to find out first-hand what Microsoft® Office® 2010 and SharePoint® 2010 mean for the productivity of our customers and our people—across PC, phone, and browser. Very well presented by Microsoft veteran, Matt Hester, the attendees learned how this latest wave of technologies provides a revolutionary user experience and how it takes us into a future of even greater productivity.

Of course, we at Simplex-IT have been using the Office 2010 beta since it’s been available but, even so, I did learn a few new tricks. The tight integration between Office and SharePoint was especially touted and demonstrated, giving me even greater insight into the possibilities these technologies offer.

So if you’ve been thinking about upgrading, especially if you’re still using Office 2003 or earlier, my personal recommendation is…DO IT! And if you need to talk about licensing multiple copies for your organization, don’t forget, Simplex-IT can help!

P.S. This just in! Microsoft has extended their Big Easy licensing promotion. Contact Simplex-IT for the attractive details, but suffice it to say, here’s just one more reason to make the move to Office 2010 you’ve been contemplating!
