Updates to benefits for Solutions Partner designations ahead of general availability on October 3, 2022

We have published updates to the Solutions Partner benefits guide. On October 3, when Solutions Partner designations become generally available, partners who meet the requirements will immediately attain a Solutions Partner designation and the new customer-facing badging. On your next anniversary date, you will have the choice of moving to the new benefits, or retaining your legacy benefits. Please review the latest guide or details in Partner Center before purchasing your benefits. 


A reminder that if you have existing gold and silver competencies, you will not lose your benefits on October 3. Partners who attain a Solutions Partner designation can choose to move to the updated Solutions Partner benefits on their anniversary date, or retain their legacy benefits, and pay the corresponding fee. 


Partners who don't meet the requirements for a Solutions Partner designation but who renewed a competency by September 30, 2022, will have the option on their next anniversary date to continue to pay the fee to retain their legacy benefits.
