During the last year, Mint has drawn on Microsoft’s prestigious FastTrack programme to provide future-focused businesses with efficient, timely, and effective customer success services on Dynamics 365 projects. But what is FastTrack and what difference could it make in your upcoming cloud implementation? Read on to find out how you can leverage this value-added service to build a better tomorrow for your business and customers. 

 Mint has been engaged in the portfolio model with FastTrack for Dynamics 365, where our Center of Excellence (CoE) receives FastTrack guidance and support for all our Projects. We are committed to bringing the Success by Design Framework to all our Dynamics 365 projects. 


What is Microsoft FastTrack for Dynamics 365 and why is it important?

It provides a structure for the FastTrack solution architects and/or partners to effectively engage with customers in a timely and consistent manner to help them successfully onboard onto the Dynamics 365 platform. 


What are the advantages for Dynamics 365 Partners? 

 FastTrack draws on its proven Success by Design methodology to offer prescriptive guidance to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Partners like Mint. This framework empowers Mint to better architect, build, test and deploy your upcoming cloud implementation. 

 Thanks to FastTrack’s extensively project-tested strategy, Mint can accelerate your Dynamics 365 implementation significantly. In addition, Mint’s involvement in the FastTrack programme is an invaluable resource for ensuring your Dynamics 365 cloud continues to deliver value as expected.
