Microsoft Volume Licensing programs serve organizations that acquire five or more licenses, but do not need multiple copies of the media and the documentation, and do not want to keep track of numerous individual license agreements. Volume Licensing offers the potential for substantial savings, ease of deployment, flexible acquisition, varied payment options, and other benefits, such as ongoing maintenance. Volume Licensing programs are tailored to the specific needs of you and your customers, based on program type, organization size, and market segment.
The Microsoft Enterprise Agreement offers the best value to organizations with 250 or more devices or users who want a manageable volume licensing program that gives them the flexibility to purchase cloud services and software licenses under one agreement in response to the changing technological landscape.
