Software licensing could save you money

Software licensing isn’t just for large corporations or offices. Any business with a minimum of only five PCs can benefit from buying software licenses instead of individual boxed products. Buying a software licence costs a fraction of a boxed license. It also reduces the headache of administrating and controlling software usage.

Software licensing allows you to:

  • Buy one piece of software and roll it out onto multiple users' PCs. All you need is a licence ‘key’ for each user. This means that new employees can be up and running in minutes.
  • Manage and control your whole organisation’s software usage from one central point. This eradicates the problems caused by illegal copying and installation of software.
  • Enjoy significant savings compared to the cost of installing individual boxed software products.
  • Choose from a number of flexible payment options including leasing solutions. This ensures your software is kept right up to date for the duration of your leasing agreement.

BT is one of the UK's largest resellers of leading software vendors such as Microsoft, Adobe, Symantec and more. We can help you determine the right volume software licensing option for your business.

What is Volume Software Licensing?

Volume Software Licensing allows you to purchase one copy of a software application (called a Media Kit) and legally install it on a specified number of workstations and/or servers. Most major software vendors offer some form of Volume Software Licensing to accommodate the needs of businesses as they grow. Our Licensing Specialists can guide you through the Volume Software Licensing options we have available.

Volume pricing saves you money

Volume licensing offers discounts for multiple software product purchases. Generally, the greater the quantity of a software program needed, the higher the discount. Since no two vendors provide the same licensing program, discounts will vary. If more than one user in your business requires the same software program, there will be a licensing alternative available to lower your cost of ownership.

Streamlined purchasing

As your company grows, multiple users are easily added to your network by purchasing license certificates instead of boxed product. For example, if you want to run a software program on 50 different workstations in multiple locations, you’d purchase one Media Kit and a 50-user licence. This reduces bulk shipping costs and saves you time distributing multiple boxed products to different locations.

Upgrade Protection available

The purchase of software Upgrade Protection (sometimes known as Upgrade Assurance, Subscription or Maintenance), guarantees that you’ll get new version upgrades throughout your license agreement. This ensures that your company has the most up-to-date version of the licensed software as soon as it becomes available. Your software will be secure and continue to run smoothly, so you can stay productive.
