What is Microsoft Volume Licensing
Simply stated, licensing software in volume makes it easier and more affordable to run software on multiple
computers within a single licensing organization.
By acquiring software licenses through Microsoft Volume Licensing programs, you pay only for the software license.
Boxed software, on the other hand, includes media (the CD-ROM or DVD), a user’s guide, and other packaging items.
Eliminating these physical costs and purchasing licenses in volume often reduces cost and provides more customized
licensing options and improved software management. Depending on the Volume Licensing program you choose,
you may receive media, and you can choose to download or otherwise acquire media (or supplemental media),
documentation, and product support separately as needed.
