Manage Office 365 Licenses
One of the biggest issues with Microsoft Office 365 licensing was having to pay for licenses annually. With CWF housing around 225 employees in Huddersfield alone, they regularly have a busy staff schedule, including new starters and people switching departments. Some staff were often given an Office 365 license just 2 months before the end of the contract, which meant they still had to pay the yearly fee even though they only used the software for a couple of months. “Even if we added on some staff for the last 2 months of the contract, we still had to pay for a full year.” At the end of the year, CWF got hit with a big bill including the price it cost to add staff with minimal usage.
Certified Microsoft Office 365 CSP
CWF decided to use DIS as an Office 365 CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) to switch from annual payments to a monthly subscription. This meant that CWF could easily add or remove licences freely, without the annual fee “If we need to add a license or remove a license, we don’t need to pay for a full year, we can just pay monthly”. DIS is a certified Microsoft Office 365 CSP, ensuring continuous support for CWF while maintaining their Office 365 environment so they don’t have to. With DIS backing their corner, CWF can focus on other areas of their business and not have to worry about Office 365 updates, maintenance or licenses again. “If we have any problems, DIS deal with it”.
