Microsoft Premier Support for Lync Partners

Enhance your Microsoft Lync voice offerings

Businesses are making the transition to new voice and communications technologies and deploying unified communications at a rapid pace. The Microsoft Premier Support for Lync Partners program creates a new business opportunity for partners with the Gold Communications competency to expand their voice solutions portfolios—and deliver world-class customer service.

After you are certified through the Microsoft Premier Support for Lync Partners program to deliver Lync voice support, you will become a Microsoft Lync Certified Support Partner and can deliver Lync voice support backed by Microsoft Premier Support escalation engineers. Working in collaboration with telephony, hardware, and network vendors, your organization can be the single point of contact for Lync support—which gives customers the confidence to choose Lync and the opportunity to work with certified experts who can understand and resolve their support challenges.

Visit the Partner Membership Center to see if your organization qualifies.
