VENDOSOFT news on used software.

Microsoft Partner Magazine

From the Microsoft Partner Magazine:
How the sell of used software paves the way to the Cloud

For some Microsoft Partners, their aim is to guide as many customers as possible to the Cloud. An expensive process that could be financed through the sale of unused licences. That’s why in the current edition of Microsoft Partner Magazine, VENDOSOFT – a Silver Partner – explains how.

Used software is worth hard cash

In nearly every company that upgrades to Microsoft Office 365, used software licences will become available. What the companies often do not know, and consulting vendors usually ignore, is that used Office applications, Exchange, SQL or Windows servers and their CALs are valuable assets that can be sold on.

A good reason for VENDOSOFT to present the “Cloud cost subsidy” in the recently published Microsoft Partner Magazine (Winter/2018). It describes how to use the proceeds from obsolete on-premise licences to finance up to 40 percent of the initial costs of Office 365.

Customers and partners benefit from used software

Behind the cloud cost subsidy lies a simple deal: if a company is looking for cloud solutions and the latest software versions, their supporting Microsoft Partner will advise them about refinancing through the sale of old stocks. VENDOSOFT acquires the on-premise licences and trades them on the used software market. “All parties profit,” explains managing director Björn Orth. “Companies increase their IT budgets, the Microsoft partner receives a commission, and our customers are happy to be able to buy the previous version of the latest software at a lower price

No risk in selling software

As a certified Silver Microsoft Partner, VENDOSOFT handles the entire sales process. This includes advice from Microsoft Licensing Professionals as well as a thorough inspection of products. Independent auditors determine the validity of the supply chain for VENDOSOFT – a proven procedure that guarantees all parties a legally compliant transfer of rights of the old licences at the end of the sales process.
