Why get a license review?
Well, there are many reasons that you should get a license review, especially if you haven’t for a while! The first reason being, it could save you money.
As a Microsoft Partner and a Dynamics Consultancy, we are experts in Dynamics Licenses (and their continual changes). But, as an organisation, we are also Microsoft Office users and know a thing or two about these as well.
It’s interesting, when working with some of our customers, to ask them a simple word: Why?
When asked “Why did you choose the most expensive License?” the answer is typically that the advert described it as being ideal for their size business, so they thought that they needed it. When we did a little analysis, we found that they were not using any of the additional features that the license provided. In fact, on face value, they weren’t using all the features of the license we moved them to, but, we came up with a transition plan.
Move them down to this lower value license, then review if everything still works for them. In another 3 – 6 months, review again.
The end result of this review was saving the client £100 a year per license. It may not sound like a great amount, but it soon adds up.
Let me ask you the following questions:
- When was the last time you had a license review?
- How many users do you have?
- Do they all do exactly the same thing on the computer?
- How many license types do you have?
- Do they use all the features you pay for?
We believe that we should be asking our customers these questions on a 6 month – yearly basis.
So, if you are looking to change license provider, or move away from directly purchasing licenses with Microsoft, why don’t you book in for a License review to kick off your transition to us?
