The ISV Activate and Accelerate program

Moving from an On-premises to a Cloud-based business requires change and investment to develop new technical skills, competencies, resources and solutions.

The Activate and Accelerate Program Powered by 1ClickFactory and QBS is designed to activate Dynamics ISVs by closely collaborating with you in developing your Business Central online offering (Business Central App on AppSource) and to accelerate your SaaS success.

As your coach in this program, we provide services to help you:

  • Transform your On-premise Dynamics GP, SL, or NAV IP into a Dynamics 365 Business Central offering for Microsoft AppSource.
  • Create a migration path for your existing On-premise customers to Business Central.
  • Assist in building yours and your resellers Cloud practice both from an operational and commercial perspective.



From concept to growth in 4 simple steps, with tailored expert support each step of the way:
