Today I'd like to continue our series on what we've learned from speaking to our publishers during Microsoft Inspire in July. During the event, I had the chance to sit down and talk with Markus Mikola, Founder & CEO of ContractZen. ContractZen is a cloud service that delivers corporate governance featuring easy-to-use contract management, board portal, VDR and eSignatures. As one of our earliest publishers to take advantage of Microsoft AppSource's new functionality, I asked Markus what the experience has been like having an offer that customers can buy directly from Microsoft AppSource.

One of the most exciting changes that has recently come to Microsoft AppSource is the ability to publish transactable offers. The commercial marketplace platform that powers AppSource enables customers to purchase directly from the marketplace and deploy it seamlessly into their Microsoft cloud product. Adding this functionality is a direct result of feedback we’ve heard – and we strive to build a marketplace that meets the needs of both our partners and customers.
Recently, in Las Vegas, Microsoft held it's annual partner event, Microsoft Inspire. While there, I had an opportunity to sit with partners to understand how they are approaching new features to support additional business models within Microsoft AppSource and the commercial marketplace platform. I sat down with Carol-Lynn Grow from LawToolBox, a company that delivers a deadline and matter-management SaaS for legal professionals, to learn how she is leveraging the new marketplace investments to drive her business.
