Public or Private Sector?

There is a wide range of purchase models and structures available from Microsoft to help and support the adoption of products and services. This is largely dependent on which sector your organisation operates. Within the Private Corporate sector Microsoft do not provide any discounts as such, however through smart purchasing, funding requests and management, Private Sector organisations can make cost savings.

To support the Public Sector (Government and Healthcare), Microsoft offer an Enterprise pricing alongside with Government pricing programmes such as the NHS N365 Discounts and the Digital Transformation Agreements 2021 which help your transition to modern licence and subscription services.

The Education, Academic and Non-Profit sectors have their own available discount offerings, such as Student Use Benefits and discounted agreements to help you with the provision, investment, and management of the latest Microsoft offerings.

Regardless of your organisation’s sector there is a route for your requirements.
