Open Value

Open Value can help you to simplify license management, manage software costs, and get more control over your investment. By including Software Assurance, this also provides access to valuable benefits such as training, deployment planning, software upgrades, and product support to help you boost the productivity of your entire organisation.


Open Value Subscription

With the lowest up-front costs of the Open Program options, and flexibility to reduce the total licensing costs in years when the desktop PC count declines, an Open Value Subscription is a great option for a smaller organisation. It also gives your organisation the rights to run the software throughout the organisation, but only during the term of the agreement with Microsoft.


Open License

Open License offers a pay-as-you-go payment plan, suitable for corporate, academic, charitable, or government organisations. Additional licensed products can be purchased through Open License in any quantity at any time during the two-year agreement term; however, a minimum of five software licenses must be purchased at the start of an Open License agreement.
