Licensing question

Answered Question
Feb 24th, 2010

Hi We are using the standard method for licensing.  Can someone explain what the benfits of going to CUWL would be. We are a network of physicians offices so we are not like a standard office.  We dont use presense and the majority of our phones dont have voicemail boxes assigned to users.  Actually the majority of our phones are not even tied to user accounts.  We do however use Call Center.  Our sales rep is pushing us towards the new licensing but I dont see the benefit for us. Can someone please explain.

Thanks!

I have this problem too.

Hi Linda,

I'm sure your Sales rep won't love this but.............

Why the heck would you want CUWL licenses if your not going to

deploy any of the feature sets? It makes no sense. When CUWL

licensing was first introduced our rep tried to push us the same

direction (Very nicely mind you ) but it just didn't work for a Campus/

University environment. At least not at that time, and not as of yet.

Ask your rep to price out what CUWL would cost vs your current

À la carte licensing. I just can't see it being beneficial cost wise.

Cheers!

Rob

Ok, that is pretty much what I thought.  I just wanted a second opinion.  Oh and BTW it was a $30,000 difference.  I couldnt find a reason to justify that let alone try to explain it to the customer.

Thanks,

Linda
