How Volume Licensing works
Software volume licensing allows the software to be run on multiple computers within a single company, in an easy and accessible way.
When you purchase licenses, through the Microsoft Volume Licensing programs, you only pay for the software license. The software package, on the other hand, includes multimedia (the CD-ROM or DVD), a user’s guide and other elements. Eliminating these physical costs and buying in volume usually reduces the cost, offers more personalized purchase options and improved software administration.
In the case of Volume Licensing programs, you can also purchase Software Assurance. This comprehensive maintenance offer can help you get the most out of your software investment. It combines the latest software with telephone support, partner services, training and IT tools. You can select Software Assurance at any time of purchase and start using your benefits immediately for the period of the licensing agreement.
Depending on the Volume Licensing program you select, you can receive multimedia, you have the option to purchase additional media, documentation and product support separately as necessary.
