When customers buy Software Assurance from Microsoft, they receive vouchers that can be redeemed for training days or various planning services packages, including SharePoint Deployment Planning Services. A Microsoft partner will then provide the service and get paid for their time by Microsoft.

The way partners request payment is changing!

From 14th February 2010, partners will be expected to submit their invoices via a new online tool which will allow them to check the status of their payments and see the details of all their service offerings in one view. The new system should make things much simpler for all involved and reduce the time partners have to wait to receive payment.

There are some online training sessions about the program that we encourage any partners who deliver SA services to attend. There are eight LiveMeetings being broadcast where you can find out more information.
