Partners benefit from simplified contract management. You now have the opportunity to pass on customers to Microsoft to manage the contracting process, including responsibility for customer acceptance and managing all agreed data. Gavriella Schuster, Director of the Microsoft Channel, explains the benefits of CSP in an interview with CRN: „If a customer initially signed up for a modern commercial contract and learns that there is a partner who actually provides a whole range of services that he would prefer to have under this contract, he can easily defer this subscription to CSP… considering that this has been very difficult today, given that they are on totally different platforms. Depending on the scenario, the experience may vary for you and your customers. Let`s first look at what agreements are. This means that the CSP partner controls the account account and billing profile and is therefore responsible for billing the customer (remember: ownership of the invoice has been transferred). As a customer under an MPA, you can continue to decide who can access cost management through the Azure portal, but you are limited, like many other built-in rolls, to providing readers or contributors. Permissions for the billing profile and up are managed on the CSP page and do not currently offer granularity in the access control provided by the „Direct MCA.“ For customers who are currently purchasing Azure through their Enterprise Agreement Server – Cloud, check out the Microsoft Customer Agreement Switch FAQ. Microsoft`s customer agreements are region-specific and are available in several languages. Look for the customer`s location and preferred language in one of the following lists to download the correct agreement. If you work in Germany, you may need to make this change in professional secrecy available to your customers in addition to the Microsoft customer contract. Instead of buying through a variety of licensing programs, you can buy via a new all-digital agreement, which we simply call Microsoft`s customer agreement.

Gives the partner the ability to direct customers to Microsoft, to accept an agreement rather than apply for the partner certificate.
