If you have not taken advantage of the Microsoft Big Easy Offer or Cloud Easy Offer, now is the time to strike. A portion of all eligible purchases will be returned to you in the form of subsidy checks that you can redeem at an authorized Microsoft Partner like xRM (www.xrm.com). On Friday, May 31st both of these cost-effective subsidy deals will expire. There is no better time to buy additional Microsoft server or end-user applications if you are a small to mid-sized business (SMB).
The main difference between the two deals is that Microsoft Big Easy Offer applies only to on-premise licenses, while the Cloud Easy Offer applies to Microsoft Online Services such as CRM Online and Office 365. Both programs allow you to enrich your Microsoft solution.
The Big Easy Offer rebate checks can be used to hire a Microsoft Partner to setup and configure new hardware, educate system admins, or train new users. The check can also go towards purchasing innovative tools such as xRM Constant Contact Integration and xRM Web Gateway, which make Microsoft technologies even more effective. You can redeem the Cloud Easy Offer rebate check with xRM consulting or training offerings including xRM hourly consulting, prepaid consulting, or Quick Start CRM Training. These services and products will ensure that your CRM deployment is successful and reap rewards for your company.
Microsoft Big Easy Offer applies to the purchase of one to five new service licenses or five to 200 user licenses. Please read the full terms and conditions to make sure you are eligible for this offer. To determine your subsidy amount, use the Big Easy subsidy calculator to estimate your savings.
