Did you know that freelancers can help you reach/maintain your Microsoft Dynamics CRM & ERP Silver or Gold competency?

 

The Microsoft Partner Network has tight regulations with regard to achieving and maintaining a Silver or Gold Competency. Many partners don’t have the required resources and haven’t got the budget to employ experienced consultants or cross-train their people.

One successful solution is to hire freelancers who have already passed the required exams and associate these independent Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs) with your organisation. The requirements clearly state that your organisation must employ or contract a minimum number of specialists who have passed these exams.

365 Freelance connects Microsoft Dynamics partners with hundreds of contractors that can help your organisation qualify for the CRM or ERP competency. Register with us for free at www.365freelance.com and search through the hundreds of available consultants.

In case you are not familiar with the competency requirements, here is a summary of the exams your organisation needs to pass:
