What’s a Software Licence?

We’re glad you asked!

Quite simply, a software licence is the formal agreement which grants you permission to use a specific programme or piece of software.

Without them, you are not legally entitled to use the software for your own purposes.

So, it’s quite important then?

Indeed it is. Very important in fact.

Software packages, whether computer operating systems, accounting packages, CRM systems or security programmes are very often critical components in the day to day operation of a modern business and workplace.

So it’s vital that you have the correct software to meet the needs of your particular business. And to do that, you need to purchase and ensure that you have secured the necessary rights to use it.

And how would we go about attaining these licences?

Well, with Sabre ICT, of course.

“We selected Sabre after talking to various IT companies about our Microsoft License requirements for our various European offices.  They looked at our various options and for our use a Microsoft OVS agreement was the best fit.  Not only were they thorough in looking into our options they also offered the best price.  We will be using them again for our renewals next year”
