Your organisation is small to medium-sized You have five or more PCs You want to have the ability to increase or decrease licences annually How does it work? This three-year non-perpetual licensing agreement allows organisations with more than 5 PCs to rent Microsoft software. Organisations pay a single price per PC which makes licensing costs more predictable. You can enrol all of your PCs, including any new ones that you buy, into an Open Value Subscription agreement, avoiding the need to support different versions of software across the business. Includes benefits like annual payment options on platform products, automatic upgrades to new software versions, the ability to use software at home as a staff benefit, training vouchers and 24x7 problem resolution support through Software Assurance which is automatically included. How can an Open Licence agreement help you? An Open Value Subscription agreement makes it easier, faster and cheaper for you to acquire software assets. Open Value Subscription offers significant discounts when standardising across your organisation.
At Quexcel, our customers ask us a lot of questions about software licenses. Is that allowed? The following is a clarification. When you purchase software licenses, you enter into a contract — a legally binding agreement — with Microsoft.
Firms pay for the software licenses and completely own it after purchasing it. Unlike Open License, Open Value spreads the cost of the license over three annual payment. After firms pay all three ms open value, the firm owns the licenses.
