    By acquiring licenses through Microsoft Volume Licensing programs, you pay only for the software license. Eliminating the physical costs of boxed software and purchasing in volume often reduces cost and provides more customized purchasing options and improved software management.

    Keys to understanding Microsoft Volume Licensing

    To choose the optimal approach for your organization, you must first understand the major characteristics of Volume Licensing policies and programs. Areas for consideration include:

    • The size and type of your organization.
    • The products that you want to license.
    • The way in which you want to use those products.

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

    For smaller organizations, the Open Programs provide a simple, cost-effective way to acquire the latest Microsoft technology.
