Optimize Your Microsoft 365 Licenses

Managing Microsoft 365 licenses can be difficult and time-consuming, especially for businesses with large numbers of end users and devices. Fortunately, the right cloud service providers (CSPs) can help businesses optimize their Microsoft 365 licenses and ensure they're getting the most efficient use of their Microsoft 365 licenses.

What are CSPs?  

CSPs are IT companies that offer businesses access to a range of cloud-based services, one being Microsoft 365. CSPs typically provide a range of services, such as licensing management, various billing options, technical support, and end user training, to help businesses manage their Microsoft 365 subscriptions more efficiently.  


CSPs for Microsoft 365 License Optimization  

A good CSP offers valuable solutions for companies seeking to modernize their licensing and optimize their use of Microsoft 365. CSPs can offer a flexible and cost-effective way to manage Microsoft 365 licenses, allowing organizations to optimize their licensing utilization, reduce unnecessary costs, and prevent license bloat. Below we talk about some specific examples of how enlisting the help of a CSP can benefit your organization. 


Microsoft 365 Cost Savings & Simplified Management  

To help businesses save money CSPs can provide more flexible licensing options and discounted rates for Microsoft 365 licenses. Some CSPs offer pay-as-you-go pricing, which means businesses only pay for the licenses they use instead of having to bulk purchase licenses.  

CSPs will right size Microsoft 365 licenses  which is an important aspect of optimizing the licensing utilization for any business. For example, if an end-user only needs simple features like email and PowerPoint, it’s more cost-effective to assign a lower tier and less expensive license instead of a more expensive one with additional features that they don’t need. On the other hand, if a user requires more advanced features such as Power BI or PowerApps, assigning the appropriate license would enable them to work more effectively and efficiently.  

Especially for businesses with large numbers of users and devices or companies that don’t have experience or availability, managing Microsoft 365 licenses can be really complex. To help businesses optimize their licenses and avoid overpaying for unused licenses, CSPs provide a single, centralized view where businesses can manage their licenses, add/ remove users, and track license and apps usage.  

To help businesses get the most out of their Microsoft 365 subscriptions, CSPs offersupportand end user training. CSPs can provide training to businesses’ users on how to use Microsoft 365 tools and features effectively, which can help increase productivity and efficiency. Additionally, CSPs offer front line technical support to help businesses troubleshoot any issues they may encounter with their Microsoft 365 subscriptions and can escalate to Microsoft if needed.  


Improved Security and Compliance  

Advanced securityand compliance features offered by CSPs can help businesses protect their data and make sure they comply with any industry regulations they apply to their industry. CSPs can provide tools that allow for data encryption,multi-factor authentication, and access control, which can help protect businesses' data from unintended and unauthorized access. To help businesses comply with industry regulations, such as GDPR and HIPAA, CSPs can provide tools that can check for compliance and guidance on policies and options that prevent data loss.Right sizing of licenses also ensures compliance with licensing agreements, which can help avoid potential legal and financial risks.
