Volume Licensing

Microsoft Volume Licensing

Volume licensing of software makes it easier and more affordable to run software on multiple computers within a single purchasing organization.

By acquiring software licenses through Microsoft Volume Licensing programs, companies only pay for the software license. Boxed software, on the other hand, includes media (the CD-ROM or DVD), a user's guide and other packaging items. Eliminating these physical costs and purchasing in volume often reduces cost and provides more customized purchasing options and improved software management.

In the case of some Volume Licensing programs, Software Assurance may also be purchased. This comprehensive maintenance offering can organizations get the most out of software investment. It combines the latest software with phone support, partner services, training, and IT tools. Software Assurance can be chosen at the time of purchase and benefits cna be used immediately for the term of the license agreement.

Depending on the Volume Licensing program, users may receive media, and have the option to acquire media (or supplemental media), documentation, and product support separately as needed.

Microsoft tailors some of its programs to meet the needs of specific industries, depending on the primary function of the organization. For example, public sector organizations such as schools and universities.
