Specialists of IMPULSE-IVC provide advice on choosing the optimal scheme for corporate licensing and the purchase of software products from developers such as Microsoft and ESET.
The method of choosing an option for purchasing licensed software is based on an analysis of the answers to the following questions.
There are special licensing programs for educational, medical and government agencies. The cost of purchasing products for these programs is much cheaper than standard retail schemes.
Number of previously purchased licenses
The answer to this question shows the expediency of the need to purchase a license ‘from zero’ or the adequacy of updating previously installed software products.
Number of computers
Principal question. If the company needs less than five licenses - the purchase of a box product is recommended. When a computer fleet exceeds five machines, you should pay attention to the schemes of corporate licensing. Each developer has their own. The most optimized and detailed licensing system is Microsoft.
Will a new technique be purchased?
An important question when choosing Microsoft software. There is a scheme whereby new computers can be purchased immediately with the installed operating system and office suite. In this case, savings can be up to 40%.
To receive software updates, consider licensing schemes that provide this feature. Is it worth to say that when you get software under an unlicensed scheme that is illegal and does not provide updates, you will have to buy the program again at full cost?
On the one hand, this option is suitable for everyone, since there are no interest payments on the actual loan. On the other hand, for example, state structures often have no right to sign long-term loan contracts for more than one year. Most importantly, what you should pay attention to when you choose a licensed distribution scheme with distributed payments - does the software transfer into the ownership of the customer after the expiration of the contract? In the event that this point is fundamentally important, it is necessary to choose a scheme, which provides for a gradual or one-time payment of the license fee.
