We've all received emails that were sent in a hurry & with little care. Poor grammar, incorrect spelling & clumsy sentences can confuse the meaning & even give the wrong impression.



Customer Testimonial

"Compassion Australia has used Microworx as our preferred Software supplier for many years now. I have found their team to be open and honest with their advice and guidance, and are always prompt with supply of the orders. Not only have Microworx provided massive cost savings for software over this time, but they have guided us easily through the quagmire of licensing as well. Of all of our business partners, Microworx stands out as our best partner without a doubt, and I do highly recommend them to others on a regular basis."
- Michael Macarther, IT Operations Manager, Compassion Australia

What is licensing?

  • Licensing is a certificate giving you the legal right to install & use a product, usually over a number of computers. It has an additional media kit (installation CD's) that is brought separately at a nominal cost.  In most cases, organizations purchase a single media kit & then purchase the number of licenses they require for their computers.
  • Licensing is an enterprise solution for organizations, which have multiple computers, as opposed to full packaged product, which is primarily designed for home users.

Licenses offer several advantages to organisations.

  • Significant cost savings.  Licenses are often 50% cheaper than the equivalent full packaged product.
  • Greater security.  Licenses are printed with the name & contact details of your organization.  No longer need you worry about your software going missing & you being left unlicensed for software you are currently using.
  • Easier Management. Your printed license certificate is not only sent to you, but also filed by Microworx & in most cases available online on the manufacturers website (Microsoft’s e-open website, for example).  These details are updated as you add extra licenses, & are available online at any time of day.
  • Minimizes the need to store boxed product. Now you only need to store your license certificate & the installation CDs.
  • Some software, such as Symantec’s Norton Antivirus, also include free technical support with their license program.
  • With Norton Antivirus, their license program provides maintenance for the term of the license. This means free upgrades for the license term, & much cheaper upgrades in the future as you only need to renew the maintenance contract.
