Introduction l.jpg

Introduction

Our goal is to help you assist your customers who may have purchased a PC without genuine Microsoft ® Windows ® operating system software or discover they may have unlicensed Windows software.

The purpose of this presentation is to provide you information on the Get Genuine Windows Agreement for Large Organizations (GGWA-LO) so that you can understand the offering, effectively market it to your customers, and participate in the licensing business opportunity.

Beginning, November 1, 2009, customers with unlicensed PCs can get compliant with the latest Microsoft operating system available, Windows 7 Professional.

Note: Each subsidiary should update with specific region or country information as required.

Background: Unlicensed and Mislicensed Opportunity

1Fourth Annual Global Software Piracy Study, May 2007, 2006 Worldwide Software Piracy Figures, Business Software Alliance

2Impact of Unlicensed Software on Mid-Market Companies, Harrison Group, April 2008

Economic Impact

  • Pirated software continues to be among the largest revenue competitors facing the industry, with an estimated opportunity cost of more than $40B annually1.

  • Piracy impacts legitimate businesses such as channel partners that have to compete with those selling counterfeit and unlicensed software

  • Research shows fully licensed businesses grow faster and are more profitable than those using a mix of genuine and unlicensed software.2 Successful companies make valuable long-term customers.

    Market Opportunity

  • PCs with unlicensed Windows software continues to be an enormous revenue opportunity for Microsoft partners.

  • The base of customers with existing PCs that need to become Windows compliant due to counterfeit or unlicensed scenarios is growing.

  • Customers want a solution that will allow them to easily bring multiple PCs into compliance, and to acquire a solution in a way that is familiar to them using their established channel provider.

To activate the software the customer can contact the Product Activation center to obtain a VLK.

    How is GGWA-LO ordered?

    The LAR downloads the GGWA-LO agreement from http://www.explore.ms, confirms pricing with their Microsoft Account Manager, and presents it to their customer.

    The customer reviews, signs, and returns the GGWA-LO agreement to the LAR, which includes the quantity of licenses to be purchased.

    The LAR submits the GGWA-LO agreement to the appropriate Microsoft Regional Operation Center (ROC) where it is processed.

    The ROC activates the agreement and processes the order.

    The customer will receive a copy of their agreement and an email confirmation that the order has been processed. These, along with proof of payment, and the GGWA contract are the license confirmation, which constitutes proof-of-license.
