Today, Enterprise Cloud Suite (ECS) and multi-year subscriptions with price protection for many online services, two significant enhancements we announced at WPC, are available through the Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA). The MPSA brings increased flexibility in purchasing and with ECS joining Azure, Windows, Office 365, and CRM Online, the best online services and software Microsoft has to offer are now available under a single, simplified agreement.
ECS combines Office 365, Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) and Windows Software Assurance per User. The power of these combined offerings provides users with best-in-class productivity across devices while delivering IT security and control. Now available via MPSA, ECS enables customers to upgrade their cloud investments to a full per user licensing model while enjoying its unique suite discounts.
With the ability to choose between one, two, or three-year subscriptions with price protection for all incremental orders, multi-year durations in the MPSA advances customer and partner flexibility while enabling budget predictability. These enhancements build upon the recently added pay-as-you-go options for Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, making the MPSA the fastest and most flexible way to purchase Microsoft online services and software.
“We have been engaged in the MPSA program for more than two years, and these additions make it a tremendous value for the customer.”
We continue to transform Microsoft volume licensing with the goal of providing the best experience possible for customers to buy and use the online services and software they need. As the future of all Volume Licensing agreements at Microsoft, today the MPSA has officially taken another major step on the path to faster, more flexible purchasing.
