XPT for Premier

Help your customers keep all of their systems up and running!

Microsoft Services Premier Support helps customers keep their mission-critical systems up and running, with continuous hands-on assistance plus immediate escalation to speed up the resolution of urgent issues. However, some customers may prefer a more convenient payment option than the standard up-front annual payment requirements.

XPT (Extended Payment Terms) for Premier is the answer. It seamlessly integrates flexible payment terms into the support services contract. With structured monthly, quarterly, semi-annual payments, or other flexible structures you can help your customers choose an option that closely matches their cash flow and budget requirements.

Are there any additional fees when customers use XPT for Premier? No, the customer pays a XPT price adjustment but there are no charges or costs to partners. Rather than a large up-front cash outlay, flexible payment terms are spread monthly, quarterly or semi-annually over the annual course of the Premier Support contract for the customer.
