Besides being an experienced and qualified licensing specialist and a Microsoft LSP (Licensing Solution Provider), Bechtle Comsoft is also an official SPLA reseller. We aim at providing a great reliability and quality in the field of licensing and software consulting as a cloud services provider.
The SPLA program allows your company to buy Microsoft software licenses and use these products to deliver software services to your customers. Software services are essentially services for your customers aimed at making licensed products available, presenting them or running them, accessing them or interacting with them in a specific way. These services can be provided on a per-invoice basis or under rental or service contracts, from one or more computer centres across the Internet, a telephone network or a private network.
SPLA can be implemented in a wide variety of companies and usage scenarios.
While other Microsoft volume licensing programs such as the Enterprise Agreement, Select Plus, and Open License programs do not allow commercial hosting of Microsoft software products, the SPLA program does. It also allows you to deliver software services to your customers (or others).
The SPLA license program allows you to lease software services from third parties when customers don’t want to acquire licenses themselves.
Shared hosting - when you want to provide your services on shared servers
SPLA gives you the flexibility you need to license Microsoft products for your customers in a dedicated or shared hosting environment. Your customers can now leave Microsoft service and product user rights management chores to you.
SPLA provides licence fees on a monthly basis. You only pay for software usage during the previous month as allocated to your customer, i.e. for the software that your customer is allowed to use. This enables you to reduce the number of licences every month (running a true-down). Licence registration is based on the terms and conditions of the SPUR (Services Provider Use Rights).
SPLA licenses can be purchased on a limited time basis or by subscription, and can be used during the term of the agreement.
You can choose from two models to provide your customers with licensed Microsoft products:
A Subscriber Access License is required for each user or device authorised to access or otherwise use the licensed Microsoft products. With the SAL option, you do not need a separate server license.
Each per processor/core licensed product authorises an unlimited number of users to access the software installed on the processor.
Three years, renewable
