New Purchases of Microsoft Dynamics GP with Microsoft’s Big Easy Offer 2011 Can Add Up to Great Rebate Savings


Email | Print

If you are considering buying a new accounting or ERP system, and need to update your network or PCs, your company can take advantage of a great promotion from Microsoft called the Big Easy Offer 2011.  New purchases of one of Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions, like Dynamics GP, Dynamics SL, or Dynamics NAV, usually involve licensing other Microsoft products and that is where the savings start.  As an example, when I ran the rebate calculator (link below) for a 10 CALs of Microsoft Office, Windows, and Exchange, the rebate check would be $1600.   If you redeemed that with us, that would cover the cost of 3 people for our popular Microsoft Dynamics GP Financials class - not bad! 

Typically, when our clients are looking at purchasing Microsoft Dynamics GP, they consider adding other Microsoft products at the same time, like Office 2010, SQL Server, Windows, Exchange, even Microsoft Dynamics CRM.  With the Big Easy Offer - the more you buy, the more you get back in subsidy funds to help offset your consulting and training services.  Our clients at The TM Group have been taking advantage of the Big Easy offers for years – and it really pays off!  Read below for specific details and links to the rebate sites:

What is Microsoft’s Big Easy Offer 2011?

The Big Easy Offer 2011 is a popular rebate program that runs from May 2, 2011 through June 30, 2011.  The offer gives you choices on Microsoft products and solutions that fit your needs, including purchases of server and desktop solutions, as well as Microsoft Dynamics CRM. For every qualifying product you purchase, like Office 2010, or SQL Server, Windows or Dynamics CRM 2011, Microsoft pays you partner subsidy funds that can be used with a Microsoft Partner of your choice.  This greatly helps offset the implementation of your Microsoft solution including software, hardware, and services.

Now you can find the right solution for your organization, while earning money back on your purchase in the form of a partner subsidy. For every qualifying product you purchase, Microsoft pays you partner subsidy funds to purchase more products and services from the Microsoft Partner of your choice.

What is a Subsidy?
A subsidy is a check made payable to the Microsoft partner of your choice. This subsidy can be used to enrich and implement your Microsoft solution. The subsidy allows you to purchase additional products or services from the Microsoft partner of your choice thus lowering your Total Cost of Ownership.

The Big Easy Offer 2011 includes these products:

  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM
  • Microsoft Office
  • SharePoint Server
  • SQL Server
  • Exchange Server
  • Lync Server
  • Forefront
  • Windows Server products
  • Visio
  • Project
  • Expression
  • Visual Studio

 

The Microsoft licensing programs included in the Big Easy Offer are:
