This morning I received an inquiry as a follow-up to my, “OEM Microsoft Server software. New short video answers top questions about adding Software Assurance.” post asking for clarification on exactly what the Part #s are that you would use to add Software Assurance to OEM SBS licenses within 90 days of the OEM license purchase. I thought I would post this up here as well so that all of you can have this information at your fingertips also.
Below are the Part #s you would use to add Software Assurance to your OEM SBS Standard or Premium licenses. You will notice two options for each:
The first is the Part # you would use if you would like to take advantage of the spread payments benefit of Open Value. This part # would be the one you would sell and bill your clients for in Year 1, Year 2, and Year 3 of the Agreement.
The second is the Part # you would use if you would like to pay for the full three years of Software Assurance benefits up-front instead of spreading out the payments over three years. It is also the one you would use if you plan on processing this order through Microsoft Financing for spread payments.
Thank you and have a wonderful day,
