Microsoft Licensing Options
Microsoft Volume Licensing programmes serve organisations that acquire five or more licences, but do not need multiple copies of the media and the documentation and do not want to keep track of numerous individual licence agreements. Volume Licensing offers the potential for substantial savings, ease of deployment, flexible acquisition, varied payment options and other benefits, such as on-going maintenance. Microsoft has Volume Licensing programmes that are tailored to your specific needs, based on programme type, organisation size and market segment.
For organisations that want to pay-as-they-go. You pay for licenses as you need them, and get maximum flexibility to grow with your increasing and changing business needs.
Optimal for organisations that want to standardise their IT infrastructure, customise their platform, and maximise their investment with Microsoft Software Assurance. Customers can upgrade at any time—no need to track versions or open new agreements.
