Stop Buying Microsoft Software and Save Money

microsoft.jpgIf you’ve been walking into your local retailer or going online to buy software by the box, you are really wasting your money. Instead you should be utilizing a licensing structure to save money on software. For example, instead of paying $300 for Microsoft Office from Staples or some other retailer, you would pay a fraction of the cost on a recurring basis – very similar to a car lease.
Microsoft’s licensing is pretty confusing to understand, but read up on it here.
The best person to speak to about this, is your local Microsoft partner, IT consultant. Microsoft will be educating them in fact on a new licensing program which will be launched in March. But read up on it here from Microsoft and here from CMP (coverage about this for resellers).
