Email | Print

In Part I of “Survive the Economic Tsunami”   we talked about how organizations who are thinking about investing in a new business system for ERP or CRM, such as Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL or Microsoft Dynamics CRM ,  may be able to tap into available government tax incentives and economic stimulus programs.  For over 25 years The TM Group,  a Gold Certified Microsoft Dynamics partner, has worked closely with various industries and offers a vertical specializing in nonprofits.   We know the right technology allows organizations to deliver high quality goods and services with fewer people and less resources, despite fierce demands to stay both competitive and profitable in a global economy.  We shared information we received from Amy Banniga, the Economic Recovery Coordinator at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation .   She provided some details about state and federal tax incentives and stimulus dollars that companies can take advantage of to purchase new software, hardware, implementation services and training.

Last week, Microsoft Announced a Specific Stimulus Offer for NonProfits:

At the inaugural NFP Summit in Washington, D.C.,  on June 18th, Microsoft Corp. announced the release of a stimulus package for select nonprofit organizations, associations and targeted trade groups designed to address the business challenges not-for-profit (NFP) groups face.   This offer would apply to Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and Microsoft Dynamics AX for ERP and Microsoft Dynamics CRM for sales, marketing, and customer service.  Microsoft Dynamics helps non-profit orgs solve some of their challenges, stimulating business growth and productivity.

It’s an attractive deal for NFPs -  the Microsoft stimulus package gives qualified NFP organizations two free additional concurrent Business Ready Licensing (BRL) Full Access users at no additional license cost with the purchase of an ERP Foundation Pack license -- a 66% discount on the suggested retail price of the software licenses.   The offer is available from June 18, 2009, through Dec. 23, 2009, only in the United States. To qualify - NFPs must show that they fall within Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 83xx or 86xx which covers social services orgs and membership .  The offer is available to new Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL, Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics AX customers.  The Microsoft Stimulus Package will benefit small and large NFPs alike.  Many partners like the TM Group are offering consulting services grants in addition to these free users.  A great site to check out for more info is http://dynamicsnfp.ning.com
