How Partners (and even ISVs) Can Become Visible to Microsoft: An interview with Rob Fegan of Venvito
33:37I talk to Microsoft partners all the time that find it hard to navigate their relationship with Microsoft and take full advantage of the incentives and benefits as a partner. Many feel they are "leaving money on the table" because they don't effectively manage their Microsoft relationship or know how to add value for the Microsoft field sales people. On this episode of ISV Talks, I speak with Rob Fegan co-founder/owner of Venvito about how they help Microsoft partners learn how to "show up" and be more visible to Microsoft. Rob Fegan has been in the Microsoft channel for over 20 years including as a past founder of a Microsoft partner. Rob Fegan has taken all the learning of how to work with Microsoft field sellers and is now coaching other Microsoft partners on how to be an effective partner to drive sales.

Carol interviews Lisa Kugel of Wolters Kluwer and CCH SureTax regarding sales & use tax compliance
25:37Would you trust any tax software vendor to support your sales & use tax compliance obligation? On this episode, I interviewed Lisa Kugel, Sales Partner & Affiliate Manager -Microsoft from Wolters Kluwer and learned that you can absolutely trust CCH Wolters Kluwer, the largest tax solution firm in the U.S. and the World for the past 100+ years.
