Zones software licensing experts along with the Zones Microsoft team can help you evaluate your organization's needs to make the right choice for your business.
Introducing the Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA)
The MPSA is a simplified agreement structure that provides more flexible purchasing with the ability to purchase on-premises software and Online Services on one agreement. You can also register one or more Purchasing Accounts under your MPSA which enables you to define your organization's purchasing structure.
Reduce purchasing complexity through:
Simplified purchasing agreements
You are provided with a single agreement under the Master Business and Service Agreement (MBSA). This agreement never expires for transactional purchases, providing more flexibility, while eliminating the need to renegotiate and renew every three years.
Select Plus purchases are associated to a unique customer ID per affiliate. All purchases are tied to agreement and Lead Affiliate customer ID that allows organization-wide reporting or detailed affiliate level reporting.
Discover licensing benefits that:
Simple, automated, volume-based discounts can be applied to licensed product purchases across your entire organization at the corporate and affiliate locations.
You can buy and receive a full value for Software Assurance benefits with proration of coverage to the third affiliate account anniversary providing between 25 and 36 months of coverage.
Gain flexibility through:
Cross-language use rights
These rights can help enhance your organization's global presence by ensuring that staff located in different countries can easily communicate.
Training and evaluation software licenses
These licenses help you budget for software training and evaluation.
You can now standardize on versions. Downgrade rights offer the right to license the latest software version available, yet still run a previous version.
Providing added convenience during product rollouts, these rights allow the use of certain licensed product media for copying of software onto multiple devices from one standard image.
Secondary use rights
These rights can help increase productivity by allowing primary users of a licensed desktop computer to share the same application license with a portable computer (for work-related purposes only).
