Perpetual licences on Sigma Cloud5 February, 2021
Perpetual on-premises licences are now available to purchase on CSP via Sigma Cloud. This means that customers can now simplify the way they buy licences. Customers can now purchase on-premises and cloud licences under one agreement through a single partner – this is great news for Indirect Resellers.
Why is this good for you as an Indirect Reseller?
- You can sell on-premises perpetual licences through the CSP offer catalogue on Sigma Cloud
- You make a one-time, upfront payment
- You facilitate the procurement. Your customers manage licence key access, activation and product fulfilment through Microsoft 365 Admin Center
- Your customers that can’t move specific workloads to the cloud now have a greater degree of flexibility. No additional licence agreements will need to be signed resulting in quicker order fulfilment
Please note that Software Assurance will not be available to purchase with perpetual licences on CSP. For customers requiring a large number of licences, Volume Licensing may still offer bigger discounts.
