Software Assurance (SA and SATV)

What is Microsoft Software Assurance?

Software Assurance (SA) provides an easy way for Microsoft′s volume licensing customers to stay current with the latest and most innovative Microsoft products. Under the SA program, you are entitled to install any new-release products covered in the agreement during the term of coverage.

Essentially, companies can acquire tomorrow′s technology at today′s prices and have the ability to spread payments annually.

A significant benefit of the Software Assurance Program is the availability of FREE training vouchers, which can be exchanged for a comprehensive range of certified Microsoft training. These address the installation, implementation, support and development of Microsoft products.

Note: Software Assurance Training Vouchers (SATV) have a fixed expiration date. Vouchers past their ′use-by′ date are no longer redeemable. Speak to us if your vouchers are about to expire - as a Microsoft certified learning partner, we can help.

Advanced Training can facilitate and/or assist you to ensure you receive your possible entitlement to free training vouchers. If you are unaware of the benefits of Microsoft Software Assurance, we will be happy to assist you to calculate your organisation′s benefits.
