What is Volume License?
What is the difference between the Product Use Rights (PUR) and End User License Agreement (EULA)?
- Answer: Volume Licensing of software makes it easier and more affordable to run software on multiple computers within an organization. By acquiring software licenses through Volume Licensing programs, you only pay for the software license. Boxed software, on the other hand, includes media (CD-ROM or DVD), a user's guide and other packaging items. Eliminating these physical item costs and purchasing in volume often reduces cost and provides more customized purchasing options and improved software management. Depending on the Volume Licensing program you choose, you may receive media, and you have the option to acquire media (or supplemental media), documentation, and product support separately as needed.
