We regularly receive emails from Microsoft MVP’s inquiring if we have a program that offers NFR product licenses to Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVP). One client recently worded it well in his inquiry, that by us having a MVP program it is a way to reward community volunteers, get expert feedback, and generally create community awareness about our products. He went on to say that MVPs, with their particular skills and community focus, are useful allies in product evaluation and beta testing. In addition, MVPs are often in a position to recommend products, and/or influence the purchasing policy of their clients.
