Microsoft Lync / Skype for Business 2015 (Non-Profit License)

  • Minimum Order Information

    Microsoft stipulates that new customers must order a minimum of five (5) Microsoft non-profit licenses in order to qualify for this special discounted pricing. Orders that do not follow this guideline will be voided and refunded. You may mix and match any combination of Microsoft licenses to achieve this minimum, but you need to have five total. This minimum must only be met once per two years. Minimum order requirements will be waived if a valid software agreement number is provided at the time of ordering.

    Please note that Microsoft downloads are delivered as ISO files, and must be burned to a CD before they can be used and installed. If you have any questions, please contact us via our contact form or check our licensing resource.

    License Processing and Delivery

    These licenses are discounted for 501(c)3 charity organizations. Churches and non-profits must submit their 501(c)3 documentation to verify non-profit status before order processing can occur. Do this via fax (our fax #: 888-930-4851), responding to the order confirmation e-mail, or by uploading the document at the order confirmation page.

    Microsoft licenses are custom created for your organization and will be downloaded from the Microsoft Volume Licensing Services Center when finished. You receive one (1) installation per license. This is a fully-featured license from Microsoft; there are no differences between this product and the commercially priced version.

    Because these are custom licenses, there are no refunds for this product.

  • Microsoft Lync is now Skype for Business!

    Skype for Business allows your church or non-profit organization to communicate via instant messaging (IM) services, video, or voice chat. Contact information is maintained throughout all of your installed Microsoft programs (such as Outlook). Churches and non-profit organizations is the latest version of the popular document-editing program. These licenses are readily available to churches and non-profit organizations at the non-profit pricing seen above.

    You will be purchasing one license. A license allows a single user to install and use the software. Additional licensing information is available below under the 'Licensing' section.

    Benefits for Non-Profits and Churches

    Use Skype for Business to:

    • Quickly communicate and collaborate with individuals on- or off-site
    • Become a greener organization by reducing the amount of paper used

     

    Major Capabilities

    • Contact availability: Similar to popular social networks, Skype for Business also allows you to see whether a person is available or not for chat. Green indicates that they're available, yellow for away, and red for busy.
    • Schedule meetings: Using Skype for Business or Microsoft Outlook, you can schedule webinars or video meetings with anyone. You'll be able to stream from your computer screen, so anything that you see, your viewers will be able to see as well. 
    • Secure conversation logs: Skype for Business maintains a conversation history in a folder, so you can always refer to a previous conversation easily and efficiently.

     

    Downgrade Rights

    By purchasing Skype for Business 2015, you are also eligible to install up to two versions prior of the application at no additional cost (i.e. you can install Microsoft Lync 2010 or 2007 instead of opting for 2015). 

     

    Licensing

    A licensed user may install and use the software on a single computer (desktop or laptop).
