Microsoft is drastically increasing the requirements for CSPs in a way that will directly impact many Partners’ CSP status from August 2018 onwards. You have to be a CSP in order to sell Dynamics 365 going forward, so this is important to you. Microsoft specifically increases their requirements around certification and (advanced) support contracts, leading to extra effort and cost for your business.
The requirements to retain your direct CSP status after August 31st 2018 include:
• Purchasing a Microsoft support plan. The minimum requirement is to buy Advanced Support for Partners, which costs $15,000 per year.
• Providing at least one managed service, IP service, or customer solution application.
• Enabling billing and provisioning infrastructure.
Do you find yourself in the situation that you are facing challenges to retain your CSP status?
Or you do not want to waste time with all the work needed to maintain CSP? Then SaaSplaza has the right solution for you.

Adding value to your Microsoft business
If you’re not sure about the benefits of working with an Indirect CSP provider, take a moment to ask yourself if you’d like to:
- Keep the focus on your core business without having to set up a 24/7 business or CSP facilities
- Remain a Microsoft Digital Partner of Record to your end customers
- Earn benefits and rebates as a Microsoft Digital Partner of Record
