ABSTRACT
Training buyers are failing to take advantage of free Microsoft technical training, due to a breakdown in communication between the software giant and its customers. Last September, Microsoft Corp. extended its software assurance service, which supports subscribing customers, to include training. Customers with an enterprise agreement automatically qualify for training vouchers and e-learning, and companies with a Select Agreement can sign up for it. Select Agreement customers had to sign up to receive the vouchers for the training by 31 December. Many missed the deadline because they did not know about it.
