The Software Asset Management Office offers the service of volume software management for the campus. Volume software is defined by the amount of software needed and the number of locations. Volume software licenses are more complex than your normal software purchase due to the multiple variables that need to be evaluated in a volume license agreement.
Faculty and staff should contact the software office for a software purchase that will include 10 or more installations or use of the software will include faculty and/or staff members across multiple departments/locations. <email@example.com>
