Microsoft Software Assurance (SA) for Volume Licensing includes a wide range of benefits for Microsoft software and services. It helps boost organizational productivity by providing 24/7 technical support, some exclusive rights/technologies, and the latest Microsoft software releases without the need to re-purchase the software.
Microsoft Software Assurance Benefits
The benefits this program can bring to your organization vary by volume licensing program and the number of licenses you have enrolled in.
With SA your organization can get in-depth planning assistance from qualified Microsoft Partners, like our sister brand Team Venti, to help plan your deployment, whether on-premises or in the cloud.
We can help ensure efficient deployments through collaborative planning built on best practices, as well as expert advice.
Technical and end-user training
Software Assurance offers training that helps empower employees, design processes, and plan IT deployments. These courses are designed to contribute to your Return of Investment (ROI), by providing targeted information you need for the best use of your Microsoft Technologies.
Home Use Program (HUP)
All members of your organization will have the opportunity to get a copy of the Microsoft Office software for use at home. HUP provides employees with a way to buy low-cost downloads of the latest versions of the Office applications they use at work. These applications include:
- Office LTSC
- Microsoft Teams
They are available in 42 languages to employees all around the world.
Their unique HUP company code and work email address is everything they will need to get started.
The above-mentioned are only some of the benefits Software Assurance brings to organizations that acquire it. However, there are plenty of additional benefits to help you make the most out of your Windows, Office, and server products.
There are some specialized benefits, such as the option to spread out payments over time, which can help you forecast your annual technology budget up to three years in advance.
