Microsoft Readies Volume Licensing Website Overhaul

Microsoft is less than two weeks away from going live with a revamped version of its Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) Web site that partners and customers use to download software and manage software licenses and subscriptions.

Redmond, Wa.-based Microsoft is promising that the overhaul will make the site -- the company's most visited business portal with some 2 million visitors every month -- much easier to use.

"This will make navigating the site much easier," said Susan Cole, senior director of licensing technology for Microsoft worldwide licensing and pricing. "It's a one-stop shop for managing software, licenses and [software] keys."

The site improvements are slated to go live on Aug. 15.

The VLSC is where Microsoft customers – and resellers acting on their behalf – go to view licensing information, download Microsoft software, and manage volume licensing benefits and software subscriptions. Despite its "volume" name, customers and partners who are purchasing as few as five licenses can use the site.

Perhaps the biggest change to the site is that software and software keys can be downloaded from the same page, rather than from separate pages as they do now. The product keys, used when installing software purchased under volume licensing, allow a single product to be used for multiple installations.
