We have a MS portal which our freelance suppliers use to update work orders in Field Service.  The upcoming changes to portal licencing (which will impact us at renewal) are going to mean this will go from an affordable solution to having a massive monthly operating cost.

Does anyone else have a similar problem?  Any ideas for how to overcome this (rather than paying an extra £10k per month)?

Are MS trying to put this software out of the reach of SMEs??

Any help gratefully received.
