Pricing and Cost Advice
Microsoft has an agreement with the government in our country, so our customers get their licensing costs from the Ministry. Whenever we work with any government, company, or government institute, which is mainly what we are doing, that license comes directly from the Ministry of Technology and Information.I think the program is well-priced compared to the other offerings that are out in the market.
