See who is on when!

Too often Partners face development capacity constraints and struggle to keep up with Microsoft's updates, hindering their ability to deliver exceptional value to customers. In this session we will provide you with practical tools you can deploy in order to improve your efficiency and increase the value you deliver to your customers. Companial developed Empowered โ€“ A value packed set of community-crafted tools and solutions designed to reduce our Partnersโ€™ development and operational efforts for generic IP and help them focus on monetizing their distinctive value.

These solutions were crafted together with our Partner community to ensure the right scope and cover basic, generic functionality that has low value-add but is expensive to maintain for our partners. These solutions are exclusively available to Companial Partners with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
