Depending on your requirements, there are different licensing (or purchasing) options to suit different businesses.
For one computer (or more)
There’s the option of boxed software (fully packaged product) or Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) where the software is pre-installed. Although this can be a very cost-effective way of purchasing software, the license lives and dies with the computer on which it’s installed.
Furthermore there are significant concessions for charity and educational purposes.
For several computers
Microsoft volume licensing programmes offer companies of all sizes, several cost-effective ways to buy and manage multiple software licenses - for as few as five personal computers.
At Newman, our IT consultants can offer you specialist tailored advice on the best software type and versions for your company, considering both your business needs and options to help you save money.
It’s worth remembering that it’s the responsibility of company directors to license their computer software. In fact, it’s a criminal offence to have unlicensed software. For peace of mind, we can run a complete software audit and produce an independent report.
We can also prepare company systems and internet usage policies for staff handbooks to ensure staff know what the rules are.
