Navigating Microsoft Licensing Plans and Promotions.

Controlling costs requires striking a balance between paying only for what you need while also providing users with the applications they require to work efficiently.

Working your way through Microsoft licensing terms and pricing can be confusing. This is especially true if your company integrates multiple Microsoft technologies so users can work more efficiently, or if you move applications from on-premises to the cloud. There may be an overlap in the services that solution sets provide, and your licensing may need to change as users move into new roles or as the number of employees fluctuates. Then there are the special promotions Microsoft offers regularly that give you even more options to consider.

Velosio License Management Services

Velosio helps you navigate Dynamics 365, Azure, and Microsoft 365 licensing programs to determine which ones are best for your business. We understand the benefits and the conditions of base plans as well as promotions and discounts, and we give you the option to consolidate all your Microsoft licenses so you pay only one bill. This not only reduces your overall licensing costs but also gives you discounts on other subscription plans Velosio offers, such as Managed Services and Application Support.

We also help you determine whether it’s best to set up monthly or year-long subscription plans for Microsoft applications and advise on license seat changes as well as whether you need assigned or unassigned licenses. And when you need to adjust or cancel a license, we help you assess how the changes will impact your users and your support agreement.
