BT Business Direct
Business computing specialist BT Business Direct has begun
offering an easy and cost-effective way for schools and colleges to
stay on top of software licensing.
Enrolment for Education Solutions (EES) from Microsoft Volume Licensing has been designed
to provide primary and secondary schools, and higher and further education
establishments, with a simple way to manage licenses for their desktop platform
The package, which is available now through BT Business Direct, offers academic
institutions access to various Microsoft Enterprise products including Microsoft
Office Professional Plus 2010 and Windows 7 Enterprise Upgrade. These products can
then be licensed in any quantity.
For complete convenience, institutions that take out Microsoft EES only need to
complete one annual employee headcount of full-time employees, who work more than
200 hours per year. Products with institution-wide licenses can be run on all
institution-owned or leased devices, which means if an institution does take on new
members of staff, they'll be covered.
Adding new products is also simple, and these can be licensed on an individual,
departmental or organisation-wide basis.
Alex Critchley, Licensing Specialist at BT Business Direct, said: "Microsoft EES
takes the hassle out of licensing software across large organisations which have
numerous desktop machines. With EES, system administrators know that the products
being used are fully covered, ensuring peace of mind all round.
"The aim of this product is to make it as simple as possible for institutions such
as schools, public libraries and museums (Schools only) to have access to the
correct licenses for the products they are running. And to make budgeting even
simpler, EES can be paid for via annual payments with a one or three-year term
options to protect the pricing in today’s turbulent market.”
