- Client Access License
- Upgrade Advantage
- Level A
There are a number of upgrade options available to you under your Select License, including version and competitive upgrades for some of Microsoft's most popular products.
In addition, Select 5.0 offers Upgrade Advantage to help you maintain the full value of your software investment by keeping your software up-to-date with the latest product versions. Upgrade Advantage is designed to help you avoid budget spikes when a new version of a product is released.
Upgrade Advantage benefits include:
- Current upgrade. You have the right to upgrade all enrolled licenses to the most current version of a product, regardless of the version owned when the license is enrolled in Upgrade Advantage.
- Upgrade protection. If Microsoft releases any major or minor upgrades to any enrolled licenses during the term of your Agreement, you have the right to install and use those upgrades, as well.
- Simple payment method. You have the option of paying up-front for the entire coverage term, or breaking your Upgrade Advantage fee into two annual, non-cancelable payments for acquisitions during the first year of your agreement.
You can enroll an unlimited number of Microsoft product licenses in the Upgrade Advantage program at any point during your Select agreement, provided the products are part of the same product pool or pools selected on your agreement. Upgrade Advantage coverage does expire upon expiration of your Select License.
Microsoft® Select 5.0 offers your organization a multi-leveled, volume discount on the Microsoft product licenses you need. Your Select price level is determined by the total two-year forecast of license acquisitions within a category of products. Select makes it easier to track your software license acquisitions through monthly license confirmations and annual acquisition summaries.
