There have been updates from Microsoft regarding a change in the release timelines for the New Commerce Experience, (NCE.) 

 

Key takeaways:

  • The general availability date has been changed from 14 October 2021, to January 2022. 
  • The period during which subscriptions can still be renewed on the exisiting (non-NCE) platform, previously set to 10 March 2022, has been extended to 30 June 2022.
  • The ability to place new orders on the existing platform will still end on the same date, namely 10 March 2022.

 

For more information, please read the full NCE update.

 

Spinpanel and NCE.

Spinpanel will integrate support for seat-based offers in Spinpanel Portal through a gradual roll-out.

 

Stage 1: Support for ordering, suspension and cancellation of seat-based offers including support for monthly and annual terms, and renewal configuration.

 

Stage 2: Product management in Portal allows centralized management of Microsoft license-based, seat-based offers and partner custom products. Product management allows you to configure margins, bespoke pricing and a scope product catalog for your customers.

 

Stage 3: Cost and invoice report support in Portal for Azure Plan, Azure usage-based and Microsoft 365 license-based and seat-based offers. Reports will provide insight in subscription lifetimes, allowing you to plan the transition to seat-based offers together with your customer. 

 

Stage 4: Seat based offer support for our billing integrations. 

 

As of November 18th, stage 1 is now live.  Please note that NCE will only be supported in Portal, not in App (app.spinpanel.com).
