With Microsoft Volume Licensing, we help make it easy for your organization to purchase affordable software licenses. You get flexibility, improved asset management, and the ability to use the Microsoft software you need, when you need it, while you save money.
The Microsoft Enterprise Agreement gives you the best overall pricing based on the size of your organization along with the full benefits of Microsoft Software Assurance and simplified licensing management through the company-wide option.
As companies begin to implement cloud services, the Enterprise Agreement now provides a convenient way to license both on-premise software and online services in the same agreement.
