Hello World

Welcome to the New Partner Technical Services (PTS) Blog!

PTS is composed a worldwide group of consultants who focus on helping Microsoft Partners succeed throughout the business cycle. We’re here to help you build a practice, answer your presales questions, help you position your business against the competition to win more deals, and consult on technical best practices during your deployment projects. We have both packaged and custom solutions that are designed to help increase revenue as well as expand your skill set to make your business win more throughout the business cycle.


As a Microsoft Partner, you are entitled to free, competitive presales assistance and Advisory Services each year. You have access to 10, 20, or 50 hours of advisory assistance based on your partner level or competencies. In addition, partners have access to no-charge, unlimited online technical support in Online Technical Communities.

Partner Level, Competency, Network Membership, or Subscription

All Microsoft Partner Network members, including those who do not receive Partner Advisory Hours through their Partner Network or Microsoft competency benefits, may purchase Partner Advisory Hours.

Additional advisory hours are available for purchase at any time. Contact your local Partner Technical Services team for details.

You’ll meet some of our Partner Technical Consultants here, as they share some of their industry knowledge that they think will be useful to you as a partner. Because we have the opportunity to work with a huge range of implementations and deployments with our Partners, we come across some rather interesting problems and solutions, which we suspect might be useful to others in such a large community. We hope you enjoy learning about these issues as much as we do! image

Our consultants are located around the globe and can deliver benefits to you in several languages. But you can also reach out directly to find your local Partner Technical Services team (https://partner.microsoft.com/global/40011365) to see specifically how we can help you and your business.

Partners, if you have anything you’d like to read about, please let us know! We look forward to sharing our information, and to your input and interaction in the blog comments.
