Microsoft FastTrack Ready Partner

The Microsoft FastTrack Ready Partner [FRP] program is designed to help customers accelerate deployment and adoption of Microsoft cloud solutions while reducing implementation costs. At Synergy Advisors, we have been a part of the program for more than 5 years, even at the launch of the program when there were a limited number of partners invited to participate.  This means we have years of experience helping hundreds of customers with more than 3 million seats fully deployed on both productivity and security technologies.  We work in all segments, from small and medium businesses all the way up to Fortune 500 companies, across the United States and Latin America, helping customers use the FRP program to adopt Microsoft 365 services at no additional cost for eligible Microsoft 365 licenses.
