    Microsoft Volume Licensing - who?

    Our's is up for renewal and just wondering which resellers you guys use? We have been using TME for the past couple of years but would like to know who else peeps use just to compare.

    Re: Microsoft Volume Licensing - who?

    We have used Pugh Computers for the last three years. They have been competitive for us on price and are very helpful with explaining some of the intricacies of the licensing, sending out media sets etc. Having said that we will probably opt into our local CLC's licensing scheme at the next renewal as they get better value with the larger volumes. (Several secondary schools in the scheme).

    Might be worth checking if your LA has a VL scheme you could join in with -ours had one for years that would have saved us loads, they just never bothered telling us about it !

    Re: Microsoft Volume Licensing - who?

    I took the decision to go with Probrand/IT Index due to price.

    Good points

    I saved a few hundred quid.

    Bad points

    They don't seem to know much about the licensing when I ask questions or they take days to answer. Not too bothered at present as I can't see us getting anything else at present but they did mess up a M$ quote a while back which cost me lots of man hours.

    Pugh was more expensive and Ramesys didn't answer my emails or phone me back when I asked them to so they lost out.

    Ramesys beat our LA on price. Pugh have been great in the past but are dearer than our LA.

    ProBrand wanted us to jump through hoops plus didn't seem to know what they were on about, plus they were dearer than our LA.

    I went to Insight. Ive got a license guy's number if anyone wants it. He gave us a new way of doing the licenses and made everything a hell of a lot cheaper. By about £2000.

    I did quite a bit of hoop jumping to get it sorted, I will be changing as soon as I can as I've had enough of Probrand.

    We stuck with TME ourselves for licensing, found their prices cheaper than anyone else we spoke to.

    Re: Microsoft Volume Licensing - who?

    Is that volume licensing or buying the licenses outright?

    We buy our schools agreement and pay

    MS desktop licenses for £25.30ea
    MS Server license for £19.30
    Encarta £2.29ea
    MS SQL £218.26
    MS Exchange £27.56

    No Cals needed.
