Microsoft Open Programs
Organizations with fewer than 250 users or devices
Open Program offerings are a convenient and simple way for corporate, academic, charity, and government organizations with at least 5 desktop PCs to acquire the latest Microsoft technology. These offerings provide volume discounts for a minimal up-front cost and are available broadly through a worldwide partner channel. Although Microsoft Open Programs are available to any size organization, they are most often used by organizations with fewer than 250 users or devices. The Open Programs offer many benefits, including the following:
- Simplicity. Start using licensed products as soon as your order is placed through the Open License pay-as-you- go model.
- Affordability. All Open Programs offer flexible payment options so that you can stretch your software procurement budgets further than you can with retail license purchase options.
- Flexibility. A broad worldwide partner channel ensures that you have convenient and fast access to thousands of software titles.
- Value. Manage licenses easily and conveniently through the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC).
