FY19 US partner investments guide
The updated FY19 US partner investments guide, available on the partner investments Yammer, is the resource you need for a one-stop overview of Microsoft’s partner investments programs. The guide provides a wholistic view of partner investments, and gathers summaries of all offers and incentive programs in one place.
For partners new to investments, this guide serves as an introduction to partner investments and how our offers and incentives programs support you and all our partners throughout your sales cycles.
For experienced users, the US partner investments guide serves as a single landing point to view high-level summaries of all our programs. Single-slide summaries for each program outline partner and customer eligibility requirements at a glance, letting you rapidly determine which programs are right for your customers.
PIE how-to guide
The Partner Investment Engine (PIE) is another valuable resource for accessing partner offers, and you can make the most of it with the PIE how to guide. This guide lays out the end-to-end PIE process from claim submission to payment.
The how-to guide breaks the PIE process down into simple, step-by-step instructions accompanied with screenshots to provide clarity. Beyond detailed instructions, this how-to guide also provides best practices on how to avoid potential delays and links to additional resources.
