Financial Details

How can Aerie save my company money on Microsoft licensing?

Our approach is split into two focused stages. First, we take a thorough look at how and what you use in terms of your Microsoft licenses, identifying any areas where you could be saving money. Then, thanks to our strong relationship with Microsoft, we're able to help you save between 5 to 10% off the recommended retail price. For smaller to medium-sized businesses, we've typically been able to save them around $2,350 each month. In fact, we've even helped several companies save more than $6,500 per month.

Are there any fees for Aerie to manage my licensing?  None whatsoever! We help you manage your licensing as an added-value service.
Does licensing through Aerie require a contract or minimum commitment?  Normally one year, but there are options for month-to-month if needed.
Our company is on a Microsoft EA plan. What are the benefits to moving our licensing to Aerie?

Switching your licensing to Aerie brings substantial benefits, primarily in flexibility. Traditional Microsoft Enterprise Accounts tend to treat all users the same, which doesn't cater to the varied needs within a company. With Aerie, we provide the same competitive EA pricing but with added customization based on your specific requirements. This way, you only pay for what you truly need, making Aerie a cost-effective and smart choice for optimizing your Microsoft licensing strategy.

Licensing Experts

Can you help me choose the right licenses for my staff and company? 

Certainly. At Aerie, we pride ourselves on our thorough and detailed review process. Our expert team dives into understanding the unique needs and roles of your various user groups. We analyze their requirements using our deep knowledge of Microsoft products and technologies to provide them with the most suitable tools for their roles. This comprehensive approach ensures that each team in your company is equipped with the right licenses, fostering efficiency, collaboration, and overall performance. Our aim is to deliver high-quality, customized solutions designed to drive improvement and success within your organization.

How often do you review my account to look for areas of improvement or savings? 

We conduct quarterly reviews of your account to spot potential improvements or savings. We keep you updated on new Microsoft products and significant changes. If a new license addition seems unusual, we'll reach out to ensure it's the right choice for your business objectives. Our focus is on delivering high-quality solutions tailored to your needs.

Our Licensing Portal

What are the benefits of using the Aerie licensing portal? 

The Aerie licensing portal is available round the clock, allowing you to manage your licenses swiftly and efficiently. The portal gives you a clear view of both current and past expenses on licensing. You can easily access your order and invoice history for better tracking. Plus, it offers ready-to-use reporting features, making data analysis simpler.

How long does it take to activate license though the Aerie licensing portal? 

Typically, less than 10 minutes. Unlike some larger third-party providers, you won't encounter lengthy delays waiting for licenses to become active.

In addition, we provide comprehensive support options to guide you through the process and help you choose the best license options. You can reach out to us via phone, email, or chat for assistance.

Transferring to Aerie

I already have Microsoft licenses, can I transfer them to Aerie without staff or workflow disruption?  Yes. This is a back-end process and can be done at your license renewal time without any disruption. 
Our company is small. Are we the right fit for Aerie? A company of any size can switch to Aerie, but companies with 50 employees or more are the typical Aerie customer, and the ones that benefit most from making a change.
Our company is large. Are we the right fit for Aerie? The larger the organization, the greater the benefit.
