Open Value Subscriptions
Select licensing that moves with your business
Zones recommends Microsoft Open Value Subscription if you are a small to midsize organization with five or more desktops and want to simplify license management, manage software costs, and get better control over your software investments.
Lowest up-front costs of the Open Program options
With low entry costs, Open Value Subscription meets the needs of a changing business environment by accommodating increasing or reducing software needs on an annual basis. This option gives your organization the rights to run the software throughout your organization only during the term of the agreement with Microsoft.
The Open Value Subscription single platform option also allows you to choose products from the Windows Desktop Operating System upgrade, the Microsoft Office system, and Client Access licenses (CALs) under one platform throughout your organization. Additional great discounts are offered when licensing three platform products company wide.
Microsoft Software Assurance is included in subscription licensing, offering access to a broad range of benefits that help with both managing costs and getting the most out of new technologies.
Software Assurance helps boost productivity across your organization by enabling you to get the most out of your Microsoft software with 24x7 support, deployment planning services, end-user and technical training, and the latest software releases and unique technologies, all in one cost-effective program. Improve end-user productivity with online training and home-use licenses to help enhance skills and accelerate familiarity with Microsoft software. To help IT staff efficiently manage your Microsoft technology, Software Assurance provides new software releases as they become available, provides access to 24x7 phone and web support, technical classroom training, and deployment planning services.
