Microsoft has announced the staggered payment option for software purchases in India through its Open Value Licensing program.

Designed especially for Small and Medium sized Businesses (SMBs), this licensing program would allow businesses to implement IT solutions for benefiting their businesses while diverting their funds to other critical capital expenditure. This program would also simplify software license management and allow automatic access to upgrades of latest products.
SMBs will be able to spread their payments for software solutions over a three-year period rather than make an upfront payment.
During the three-year period, Open Value Licensing also provides Software Assurance, a feature that allows access to such benefits as training, IT planning, software upgrades and product support.
