Today we launched the next generation of our very popular Gear Up Sales Toolkit, and wow, is it slick! Dubbed the "eToolkit", and available on the Gear Up Web site at http://www.ms-gearup.com/eToolkit (you will need to login with your existing Gear Up credentials or take a few seconds to register), it's the familiar tool many of you have used for years, with the same valueable content as previous printed versions, but it's now loaded with features and functionality that will make using it easier than ever before. This move from the print version to an enhanced, online version will provide you with a more effective sales experience, and helps reduce the Microsoft environmental footprint, too.
Last week, I had the pleasure of walking through the final eToolkit with Tiffany Morgan, the Partner Development Manager who manages Gear Up and the Gear Up Sales Toolkit, and who led the charge to build this eToolkit, and here are some of the great things you can expect from this interactive experience:
The eToolkit is available at http://www.ms-gearup.com/eToolkit as of today, and updates will continue to occur three times per year.
If you are already a fan of the Gear Up Sales Toolkit, you'll be pleased with the improved functionality, superior portability, new features, and enhanced accessibility to Microsoft product information that the eToolkit offers. It's an upgrade to what was already a great resource.
If you have not had the pleasure of using the Sales Toolkit before, you will wonder how you ever got along without this resource, and will be instantly hooked when you see the eToolkit.
Either way, I encourage you to go check it out. If you've never used the Gear Up site before, you will need to register, a simple process that takes just a couple of minutes at most. After you've had a chance to play with the eToolkit, if you can tear yourself away from it, let me know what you think!
Until next time,
I designed and did the UI/UX work, and I like it too :)
Have the next version all sketched out, hopefully it can be implemented in the future. Make the tool even better.
