Microsoft Volume Licensing Competency Certificate Presented to Provance
Provance, a provider of IT asset management software, announced that it has received the Microsoft Volume Licensing Competency certification in recognition of its expertise and knowledge in providing solutions that can help users to make seamless software licensing decisions.
Provance explained that its IT Asset Management pack extends Microsoft System Center 2012 to provide software asset management and license compliance. The pack reportedly supports users’ implementation of best practice methodologies and standards for IT Service Management and Software Asset Management, including ISO/IEC 19770 and the Microsoft SAM optimization model. The pack can be deployed by Microsoft System Center customers to maintain license compliance and avoid overspending on licenses, maintenance and support.
Gilles Lalonde, CEO at Provance said, “Certification by Microsoft in both the Software Asset Management and Volume Licensing Competencies is a clear and powerful endorsement by Microsoft that our software products are built on a solid foundation of deep expertise in software management and licensing. This recognition by Microsoft further acknowledges the incredible talent and passion of the entire Provance team.”
By earning the Microsoft Volume Licensing competency, the company can now realize opportunities to attract customers, develop revenue streams and expand its services business. It is also eligible to receive a set of core benefits that apply to all competencies.
Provance was recently named Microsoft SAM Innovation Partner of the Year finalist and the Volume Licensing Competency certification supposedly extends the partner recognition Provance has earned so far.
Microsoft added that Volume Licensing offers the potential for substantial savings, ease of deployment, flexible acquisition, varied payment options and other benefits, such as ongoing maintenance and the company’s Volume Licensing programs, which are designed to the needs of its partners’ customers based on program type, organization size and market segment.
