MS Volume Licensing/Renewal



  • Hi folks,

    Our yearly volume licensing is due soon so i'm getting quotes (UK). Our existing provider is quoting £4,000 before VAT more than expected (Insight UK), we have been using them for years, whilst another provider has quoted a far more reasonable price, £4,000 less to be exact (Softcat), which is the expected total that I had in mind...

    Our licenses expire end of month, do you foresee any issues switching provider? I imagine its the same as purchase through Insight UK however I have not changed provider before and want to make sure that paying through another provider wouldn't be any risk?

    Has anybody had issues switching with a month until expiry of licenses?

    Best,
    Jim



  • There should be no issues switching providers. I'd recommend PCM, too, we've gotten some seriously good buzz about them. I've got a UK contact, too. Just spoke with him this morning.

    Thanks Scott. I expect that we would see no issues, just want to be comfortable about it before giving the go ahead. Generally, do you just provide new supplier with the agreement ID of the existing subscription and they then sort the rest after payment?
