Ever since the Advisor program was introduced, we have always have stressed the importance of making sure partners were listed properly as the Partner of Record (POR) on their customer’s cloud subscriptions.
Not only does that ensure that the partner receives the financial incentives that they are due, but it also gives Microsoft visibility into all the great work that partners are doing for customers!
And remember, if you are not listed as the POR in an Office 365 Subscription you are never notified about changes/updates when your customers are.
Last week, Gavriella Schuster published this blog: Digital Partner of Record and more: getting recognized for the work you do.
What I loved about it is that it acknowledges that there are times that you may not be able to list yourself as the Partner of Record, but you are the partner that is taking an active role in helping maintain and support that customer.
We want to make sure you are getting proper recognition for your hard work…. especially when it comes to Cloud Competency attainment.
If you work on a cloud subscription but are not listed as the DPOR, data about your work from the following four sources will help you earn credit and qualify for the competency sooner:
- Microsoft Sales (for the transacting partner of Enterprise Agreements and Open licenses)
- Commerce Platform (for CSP subscriptions)
- FastTrack Onboarding Center
- Delegated Admin Privileges (per workload)
