ValueLicensing is a registered Microsoft Partner and Reseller dealing in Software Licences sourced from both solvent and insolvent organisations.
ValueLicensing are a registered Microsoft partner and reseller operating in both the private and public sector. We are an ISO 9001:2015 certified provider who specialises in the procurement and selling of pre-owned Microsoft Volume Licences to businesses in the UK and EEA.
We source Microsoft licences from solvent businesses throughout Europe that no longer require them due to moving to the cloud as well as businesses that are downsizing or from insolvent companies. We help Insolvency Practitioners throughout Europe realise significant value from those dormant assets.
Since the 2012 Oracle decision at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), we have continued to work hard to offer our customers throughout Europe significant savings when purchasing their software, ensuring that they reduce the expenditure on their Microsoft Licences. We understand that businesses require compliant software, so why pay more for it when you don’t have to?
Since the beginning of our journey in 2009, we have established a leading position in the pre-owned software market. We are proud to have worked with leading Insolvency Practitioners in the UK and Europe, including PWC, Deloitte, Ernst & Young and Grant Thornton, and we have worked on purchases of redundant software licences through insolvencies such as Comet Group, Phones 4 U and Royal Imtech.
Our client base continues to grow and we have now supplied pre-owned Microsoft Volume Licences to over 3,250 business customers across Europe, including large multi-nationals with over 350,000 employees. We supply to companies and organisations of all sizes including SME’s and large enterprises and have helped save our clients over a total of £30 million to date.
We continue to provide our customers with an exceptional service with our strict processes which is recognised through our ISO 9001:2015 certification. This certification demonstrates that we strive to provide our clients a high quality and consistent service with our robust quality management system.
To give our clients peace of mind, all of our sales are covered by our Professional Indemnity Insurance with a total of £20,000,000. This ensures that you can be confident when purchasing through us.
Our team has extensive knowledge of the niche market that we operate in. One of the most important aspects in the procurement of pre-owned Microsoft software licences is the need to make sure that the licences are compliant with the EU Software Directive and applicable Microsoft regulations. Due to this need for compliancy, the procurement function at ValueLicensing undertake a thorough due diligence process prior to each and every purchase. Find out if you can sell your licences.
ValueLicensing also ensures that we handle all the complexities for our clients who are purchasing pre-owned licensing from us. Upon completion of an order, all customers will receive a Software Licence Pack containing all of the required documentation to prove legal ownership. We will also support you through any SAM Audits that you subsequently go through. Find out about all our products.
There is growing pressure from software providers to encourage their clients to migrate to a cloud based subscription service; the Software as a Service (SaaS) model. This is convenient for the customers in terms of ongoing updates and support but can lead to a certain loss of flexibility. It can also increase their costs over the long term. For this reason, many large organisations have made the decision to stay with software that is licensed on a perpetual basis – a traditional model.
Many organisations are unaware or misinformed of their rights when it comes to pre-owned volume licensing. We are available to discuss any queries that you may have, please contact us today.
