TSC acts as a single point of contact for Gold Certified Partners to access Microsoft Support Services. It provides direct access to technical support specialists who help manage the technical support experience from problem to resolution, at any point in the business life cycle. TSC ensures that Gold Certified Partners have the most up-to-date information by proactively contacting them regarding security alerts, patches, and hot fixes, ensuring that complex projects run more smoothly.
