  1. How do we get the Microsoft 365 E5 licenses without have to have 6 people to take test and certificate - when we are only 2 technical personnel in our small company.


  1. Why do we always have to have customers with more the 1000 people to get part of the Microsoft Partner Incentives rewards. Our customers need as much help to embrace the product as the larges Enterprise need.

Hi @kebrjo ,


Thank you so much for sharing this feedback with the community!

I hope you had the chance to review the recording of this meeting, otherwise I wil try to address some of the points below.


All the information that is available on incentives can be found at https://partner.microsoft.com/en-US/membership/partner-incentives

Whether you’re driving consumption or finding new customers, we have incentives that support and reward your success across all partner segments.

As an example, the Microsoft Online Services Advisor Sell incentive rewards partners engaged during the pre-sales phase, leading to new or existing customers acquiring additional Microsoft Dynamics Online seats.


MAPS, Silver and Gold partners are also entitled to technical consultations. Get advice from Microsoft partner technical consultants on presales, deployment and app development scenarios for cloud and hybrid solutions by leveraging your technical presales and deployment benefits.

To your third question, I believe this is your case as well, you might want to check this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3121537/using-technical-presales-and-deployment-services


I hope this helps,
