ValueLicensing will be exhibiting at or participating at the following fantastic industry events in 2018….
CLOUD EXPO – EXCEL 21ST & 22ND March 2018
Pre-owned licenses – will you uncover your pot of gold at Cloud Expo Europe?
Visitors to Cloud Expo Europe may find they are sitting on a ‘pot of gold’ if they visit the ValueLicensing team on stand C1466, especially if they moved from perpetual Microsoft Volume Licensing to the cloud.
The pre-owned Mircosoft software specialist buys and sells software throughout Europe at volume, passing on the savings and releasing cash to its customers and suppliers.
Their team of specialists will be on hand to answer any questions about the concept of pre-owned software, including how it works in practice, the process of acquiring or selling licenses and of course, the opportunity to save money or even make money on pre-owned licenses.
Jonathan Horley, MD of ValueLicensing, who started the business in 2009 and leads a team with over 100 years of experience in the sector explains the concept;
‘The pre-owned software concept is actually relatively unknown but essentially, we are all about saving or making money for our customers. In terms of visitors to Cloud Expo Europe, there is a real opportunity to realise the value in what are now redundant licenses, left on the metaphorical shelf after a migration to the Cloud.
‘We initially focused on sourcing licensing from insolvencies but we now source them from many areas, notably as a result of organisations migrating to subscription licensing
like 0ffice365, thus freeing up perpetual licensing.
Since the 2012 Oracle decision at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), ValueLicensing has helped customers throughout Europe to make major huge savings when purchasing their software, ensuring that they reduce the expenditure on their Microsoft Licences.
Jonathan continues; ‘Whilst our focus at Cloud Expo Europe will be on how we realise value by buying old licenses, we can of course supply to businesses in all countries within the European Union and European Economic Area (EEA). All our Microsoft licences are sourced within the EEA and we have supplied to thousands of companies throughout Europe, helping them save millions of pounds.
‘We are on hand at the show to answer any questions visitors might have on what is a very interesting opportunity for them, be they selling or buying or still considering other options before you move to the Cloud We look forward to being there and perhaps providing a refreshing change an an exhibitor who is there to buy, more than sell!’
