Volume Microsoft licensing for your business
As a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), Core sell licences for Microsoft cloud products that not only give you access to the apps and platforms you need, but also give you great value for money and ROI.
When you choose Core as your CSP, your licensing will be managed by your very own dedicated Customer Success Manager who can help you and your users transition smoothly, and offer a wide range of remote training sessions to help drive engagement and user adoption of Microsoft technologies.

We can help you create a user adoption plan to increase staff engagement, productivity and usage - ensuring you achieve a guaranteed ROI for your licensing costs.

Our Customer Success Programme has been designed with you and your users in mind; it’s a programme which makes sure you get the very best use out of your Microsoft products.
