Program Overview

One of the primary incentives to attain and/or maintain Silver or Gold recognition are the licenses awarded to partners for internal-use, training, testing and demonstration purposes. These benefits are awarded based on three factors including highlest level achieved, active competencies and optional additional tool-kits. Many partners maximize their entitlements in order to off-set the cost of their external licensing agreements such as an EA (Enterprise Agreement) for example.  Per current program rules (June 2016) active competency partners may opt to purchase up to fourteen additional tool-kits per membership pending each site qualifies. The tool-kit purchases also duplicate your support benefits such as Advisory Hours, Technical Support and Signature Cloud Support.


Above and beyond general license and support benefits partners also receive a wealth of other entitlements that are accessible to those associated to your membership. Several examples are provided below for your review and records, but please be aware that some benefits are only available based on competency attainment.
