Licensing Agreements

Open Value Licence

The Microsoft Open Value Programs are for corporate, academic, charity, and government organisations that want to make a minimum initial purchase of five software licences. With features such as a customisable platform and volume discounts for minimal up-front purchases, Open programs give you value and flexibility in a convenient Microsoft Volume Licensing program.

  • Open Value Organisation-Wide: A three-year, organisation-wide agreement that lets you pay annually for the right to run the same version of a licenced product across your organisation and to upgrade to the latest versions as they are released.

  • Open Value Non–Organisation-Wide: This is available by either adding Non Organisation-Wide licences to your company-wide agreement, or opening a Non Organisation-Wide agreement.

  • Open Value Subscription: Offers the same benefits as Open Value, but with lower up-front costs. With Open Value Subscription you have the ability to increase or decrease your licence count on an annual basis to accommodate changes in your overall desktop PC quantity. This program provides access to Microsoft software licences for the term of the agreement through subscription-based licensing and offers new Open Value Subscription customers a potential savings of up to 50 percent on their first year’s payment through credit for qualified existing software.
