CSP Promo Makes Direct Routing Adoption Easier

CSP Promo currently unavailable

Unfortunately the CSP promotion is currently unavailable. We have received the following email on Friday, 14 August 2020.

Hello Partners,

We recently identified an issue with the Microsoft 365 Business Voice promotion launched on August 1, 2020 that is being transacted through Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) and direct channels. We are currently working to resolve the issue and will no longer be offering the promotion at this time.

Impacted Audience
Partners transacting in the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) and direct channels

If you recently purchased the promotion, you will be issued a credit for the difference in price. The credit will be issued automatically, no action is required from your organization. When the Business Voice promotion is available for relaunch we will notify you through a Partner Center notification. During this time, Business Voice is still available through CSP and direct channels at standard rates.

Next steps:
Pause any campaigns and sales motions related to the current Cloud Solution Provider promotion. Stay tuned for more details on the relaunch of the Business Voice promotion.

Thank you for your partnership with Microsoft.

Great news for Microsoft Partners looking to deploy Teams Calling with Direct Routing to their customers – subscriptionare on sale 

Microsoft is running a promo for CSP partners where existing customers that don’t have an active or recently cancelled (within the last 30 days) Business Voice without Calling Plan subscriptionor if your setting up new tenancy can get a 33% discount on the Business Voice without Calling Plan subscription 

Sounds excellent and given Microsoft 365 Business Voice without Calling plan retails for approximately $18.14 in NZ this discount brings it closer to the Microsoft Phone System subscription cost.    

This is great for those who are on 365 Business licenses and can’t get that lower cost add-on which is at a way better price point in my opinion. 

Naturally, this means getting started with our Direct Routing calling bundles is even easier, so if you want to get up and running get in touch. Reminder, we don’t supply Microsoft licencing, so contact your CSP/IT provider for pricingdetails and to take advantage of this. 

If you don’t have an IT provider who can help you with licensing to take advantage of this, get in touch, and we’ll put you in touch with some of our partners who can help you get on the Teams Calling band waggonsales@lightwirebusienss.com 

The details from Microsoft: From August 1, 2020, to January 31, 2021, new and renewing subscriptions of Microsoft 365 Business Voice without Calling plan will be subject to a 33% discount for 12 months. Handy little T&C guide from Microsoft is available here.  

This applies to New Zealand and Australian CSP Partners
