Providing easy organization and access for small business, mid market and enterprise companies in Canada.
In today’s business world, many organizations have cut back on IT staff in an attempt to save money. This leaves little time for IT managers and staff to worry about managing license agreements and license renewals.
Microsoft licensing gives organizations the opportunity to use and distribute a wide-range of Microsoft products. However, volume licensing makes it convenient and more affordable to run a variety of software, hardware and services with an organization.
Microsoft has a variety of licensing solutions to customize to the specific size and type of organization. When selecting the best licensing solution for your organization, Microsoft recommends understanding the major factors associated with Volume Licensing policies and programs. The three main factors to consider are as follows: size and type of your organization, products you want to license and the way in which you want to use those products.
