Looking for a great way to really demo Office 365 for your customers, have you heard about the “Demo Provisioning Toolkit for Office 365” yet?  With the Provisioning Tool, you create a “Live” tenant in the Office 365 environment, then using the tool, it populates user data for you to utilize to show your customers. 

Objective: This business productivity scenario is designed to let customers experience the entire Microsoft Office 365 productivity platform in the context of a typical business situation at a fictitious company, Contoso.  

Summary:  The activities in this story represent a day in the life of the characters at work during a busy period.  Karen along with her fellow Contoso employees will be keeping up with email, responding to a sales request and finding people and information in order to effectively analyze data.  Simultaneously, she will be communicating and collaborating with co-workers on a sales proposal before creating a presentation and taking their work on the road.

Sales Consideration: All sections and topics need to be tied to the end-to-end business Microsoft productivity solution. The focus is not on technology but on the functionality that can improve communication, collaboration, and efficiencies in an organization, and therefore save the company time and money.

  • Quickly create an Office 365 trial tenant with demonstration data

    Install jamming up on "provisioning users". The install keeps hanging on provisioning users (danj to be specific, on several different attempted setups).

    Is there a known issue?
