Monthly payments for the Enhancement Plan instead of one lump sum and free cloud licenses too? Yes please!
Microsoft has enabled existing customers who are active on their EP to renew their EP through the CSP program and receive Dynamics 365 Business Central online licenses.
After careful consideration of the current environment and the potential business impact of COVID-19 on our Dynamics Price List (DPL) on-premises customers, Microsoft has created an offer enabling existing customers who are active on their EP to renew their EP through the CSP program and receive Dynamics 365 Business Central online licenses. Customers who choose to renew their EP through the CSP-EP renewal offer will receive the following benefits:
A price point that is equal to the EP renewal quote
Dual use and downgrade rights to their current on-premises DPL product (Dynamics 365 Business Central, on-premises, Dynamics NAV, Dynamics GP, and Dynamics SL)
A monthly billing option (subject to CSP partner approval)
Enhancement Plan benefits
Dynamics 365 Business Central (cloud) licenses for migration to the cloud
Take note that the CSP-EP renewal offer is a new option for customers to renew their EP. Customers will continue to have the option to annually renew their EP via DPL for their on-premises solution.
Licensing requirement: Customers must purchase Dynamics 365 Business Central (cloud) licenses with an annualized total that is greater than or equal to their EP renewal amount.
Minimum license requirement: Customers must meet and maintain the licensing requirement for the term of their CSP subscription to prevent a lapse or the expiration of their EP in DPL. Those who either fail to meet the eligibility requirements or who cancel their CSP subscription must pay their prior year’s EP costs in addition to lapsed fees (as stated in the Customer Services and Support Policy) to continue to receive EP benefits for their on-premises DPL solution.
Licensing program: CSP
Product: Dynamics 365 Business Central (online)
Segment: Commercial/Public Gov only
Offer length: Until June 30, 2021
Offer duration: one-year initial agreement and two optional one-year renewals (three years total), or one-year subscription with one-year auto-renewal option
Offer availability: Offer subject to CSP country availability
Price: The CSP-EP renewal offer provides a price point that is 60% lower than the standard commercial list price. For example, the CSP-EP renewal offer list price for Dynamics 365 Business Central (online) Premium user is $40 compared to the $100 list price for the CSP standard commercial price list.
Licensing requirement: Customers must purchase Dynamics 365 Business Central (online) licenses with an annualized total that is greater than or equal to their EP renewal amount. Customers who don’t remain active on CSP will revert to EP and will be responsible for all lapsed fees.
At the end of the CSP-EP renewal offer period
Customers have two options:
They can discontinue their online transition to Dynamics 365 Business Central online services, pay for their EP renewal, and remain on the DPL version of their product.
Those who have not fully migrated to Dynamics 365 Business Central online services, if eligible, may choose to continue to renew the CSP-EP renewal offer for two additional years (three-year total).
