Funding programmes for Microsoft

Most organisations recognise the benefits of Microsoft’s Azure platform and its Modern Workplace suite, known as Microsoft 365. However, getting started can be difficult when you start to look at what is involved such as resource and funding and poor past experiences can make decision makers wary of heavy investment.

This is where Microsoft funding programmes can assist your organisation.

These programmes allow Microsoft partners, like Trustmarque, to provide customers with expertise to ensure the smoothest deployment experience possible. Funded programmes help organisations migrate to the cloud and adopt modern workplace applications at each stage by:

  • Running discovery sessions such as proof of concept days and Customer Immersion Experiences
  • Providing technical assistance to deploy Office 365 or Windows 10 if an organisation lacks resource or in-house skills
  • Maximising return on investment by having experts who understand the full capabilities of Modern Desktop products and services

Certain criteria must be met to secure funding, although this does not guarantee it. Speak to your Trustmarque Account Manager to find out more.
