As many organizations begin ramping up their efforts towards an upcoming Microsoft renewal, enterprises must begin the looming task of preparing their final true ups and deciding which products should be included in the new Microsoft Enterprise Agreement renewal. This can be a daunting task that without proper resources, planning and experience, can result in mistakes that can be extremely costly for organizations.

Here are some reasons to consider utilizing a software licensing consultancy:

  1. Software licensing terms, packages and pricing are constantly changing. It’s extremely rare for an organization of any size to develop the internal expertise to enable them to ensure compliance and negotiate the best deal available.
  1. A major benefit to working with a software licensing consultancy is that they have visibility to discounts and terms which have been negotiated by other organizations. This benchmarking knowledge allows the client to achieve optimal discounts and terms.  Microsoft and their resellers obviously won’t do that.
  1. Significantly reduce the headache involved in preparing for a complex Enterprise Agreement renewal with Microsoft by receiving comprehensive reports with clear recommendations and insight – giving you more value while reducing your overall spend.
