How can Microsoft compete with this licensing?
Please tell me if I'm wrong.. I hope I am.
Under current enterprise agreement we are paying $50/ faculty for all software upgrades. Students can access MS Office on nearly 3000 laptops around the district.
We are expanding the number of laptops for students, and starting a 1:1 next year.
With 365 pricing at 2.50 / student and 4.50 for faculty. How can we make this huge jump?
At 780 faculty x $50 = $39,000/ Year
Say we only pay for our 6th-12th grade:
780 Faculty @ $4.5/month = $3510 X 12 Months = $42,120
2100 students @ 2.5/month = $5250 X 10 Months = $52,500
So to keep Microsoft when we move to 1:1 it will double our licensing agreement? Even though no extra faculty will be getting access to MS Office?
Is there any cheaper way to do this?
