Microsoft Advises Businesses on Office 2016
Office 2016 was released for Windows last month, and utilizes many of the same updates and rules as Windows 10. Many businesses are looking to maintain the Office 2016 setup they currently have, while avoiding constant changes. To address the situation, Microsoft is advising these businesses to purchase old-style perpetual licenses rather than subscribing to Office 365.
This approach stems from the fact that Office 365 lacks one update track available for Windows 10: Long-term servicing branch (LTSB), which allows users to avoid all changes (except for security patches) for extended periods. To fill that gap, Microsoft suggests perpetual licensing.
For businesses who need to keep their current version of Office 2016 without any alterations, Microsoft’s solution is useful. However, purchasing software licenses can be costly, particularly if you need multiple options. To address that need, NetFire extends its Microsoft partnership to all clients – through our service, you can lease licenses for any Microsoft software product at low monthly rates. NetFire’s licensing program grants you access to the most industry-leading software, all backed up by our round-the-clock support from experienced staff. To find out which licensing options work best for you, please contact a member of our sales team.
