The reseller’s guide to Microsoft sales and licensing resources

In May, we announced the upcoming August 31 closure of the US Gear Up website, used by many reseller sales reps over the past few years as a source of product information, sales and marketing resources, and licensing information. These resources are still available to you on the Microsoft partner portal, and there are many new resources for you as well.

Use our guidance and links below to acquaint yourself with the portal, and to go directly to popular resources previously found on the Gear Up site.
