Streamline Licensing

 

Reorganising Microsoft IT licensing into an efficient, cost-effective structure

Don't get stuck in traditional licensing


Traditional Microsoft IT licensing can be complex. And, with varying licensing options available - ranging from MOLPs to Open Value licensing agreements - not only complex, but often overly expensive.


Applications and devices are bought, users added and deleted as required, often resulting in:


a jumble of licences that are

held with numerous vendors with

differing renewal dates and

 licensing diverse software versions


Cobweb's Streamline Licensing Service helps businesses re-organise their Microsoft IT Licensing into an efficient, cost-effective structure, with billing from one central vendor.
