Who benefits from a Dynamics 365 subscription support plan?

Dynamics 365 subscription support plans are available for Stoneridge Software clients that have Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement and Dynamics 365 Business Central deployed in the cloud.  

Dynamics 365 deploys two major releases each year. With a subscription support plan from Stoneridge Software, you’ll not only be able to deploy the releases into your environment without issue, but you’ll also work with our team to learn how the features in the release are applicable to you and how they will impact your business.

  • Need additional software admin resources or don’t have an internal resource 
  • Are interested in extending your team to include domain and technical knowledge  
  • Have customizations or integrations deployed by Stoneridge  
  • Would like to predict support costs 
  • Want a simpler way to take advantage of new features and enhancements in the releases
