So you’ve decided the SPLA program is right for your organization, and you’re  looking to enrol. How do you get started? Not to worry, this is a frequent question clients are facing these days and we’re here to help.

As an authorized Microsoft reseller, Softchoice makes the SPLA process as simple as possible. If you’re not a current Microsoft Partner, the first step you will need to take it to go ahead and become one.

From there, the process is simple. We will work with you to identify the right solution and then will work with Microsoft to provide you will the completed SPLA contract, sent electronically from Microsoft. Shortly after signing, you’ll receive access to the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC).

From here, you will have access to:

  • Download products and keys
  • Review the status of enrollments, including upcoming expirations
  • See an overview of all downloads currently available by product and version within the SPLA program
  • Activate and consume Software Assurance benefits

For any questions you have specifically about the VLSC, there are dedicated local VLSC helpdesks at your disposal.

Additionally, if you have any questions about the SPLA program including benefits, enrolling or general inquiries, post your question below or contact me directly.
