Use the cloud to sell the cloud – activate your internal use benefits


imageMicrosoft Partner Network members receive internal use software licenses for Microsoft software and online services as a benefit of subscribing to the Microsoft Action Pack or earning a gold or silver competency. You can choose any combination of on-premises software and online services to suit your needs (run your business, train your people, develop and test, and demonstrate to your customers) and change between them at any time, just like Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) customers.

Partners that have activated and are using their internal use rights (IUR) for Microsoft online services  tell us that they see a direct relationship between their use of them in their business and the growth of their cloud sales.

Online services internal use rights

Your internal use grants for Microsoft online services are based on your membership in the Microsoft Partner Network. In the charts below, you can see the total seats you are eligible for based on the core benefits by membership plus incremental seats for specific competencies.
