    Earning or purchasing additional IUR licenses

    Additional IUR licenses can be earned in a variety of ways, up to program maximums.
    To receive additional core benefits:

    • Qualify for an Additional Benefit Tool Kit.

    To earn incremental benefits in addition to your core benefits:

    • Attain an additional competency in qualifying locations.
    • Purchase limited licenses at partner discounted prices. Additional licenses may be purchased through the Volume Licensing channel.

    Maximums are five times the initial grant for each product within a single country, and 15 times the initial grant worldwide. IUR maximums apply to granted licenses only, not purchased licenses.

    Office 365 example:

    • A gold competency partner receives an initial grant of 100 Office 365 licenses as the core benefit.The partner qualifies for two Additional Benefit Tool Kits (initial competencies in a new location) in the original country, receiving an additional 100 Office 365 license grants each time.
    • The partner also earns additional competencies at these locations and will continue to earn Office 365 licenses up to 500 in the original country.
    • A competency earned in a new country makes the partner eligible for an additional core benefit of 100 licenses.
    • The partner can qualify in any number of new countries or earn any number of competencies in any single country, earning additional license grants not to exceed 500 in any one country or 1,500 worldwide for Office 365.
    • The partner can continue to earn competencies in new countries or in countries where a competency is already held, but will not receive additional license grants.

     

    More licenses to grow your business

    Silver and gold competency partners receive additional license grants to enable their teams to learn and sell the latest Microsoft technologies.

    Training licenses: in addition to IUR licenses, which can be used exclusively for internal training of your employees.

    Demonstration licenses: competency partners also receive access to a wide variety of Microsoft software licenses for demonstration purposes. Demonstration software includes an unlimited number of grants, regardless of competency, silver or gold level. Sales and marketing employees can use this software to showcase products to your customers, but demonstration products cannot be installed on customer hardware or infrastructure and must be used with partner supervision.

    To determine how many training-use and demonstration licenses you can receive:
