Microsoft licensing FAQ

A Microsoft CSP or Cloud Solution Provider is a program that Microsoft partners can join to help customers with licenses. They work as third-party experts on behalf of Microsoft to support businesses with their Microsoft licensing requirements. They get exclusive licensing discounts that they can pass on to end user organisations.

There are multiple benefits to partnering with a CSP to provide your Microsoft Licenses:

  • Cost Saving – you will save on average 10% on your annual license bill.
  • Flexibility – you are able to increase and decrease your licenses to match your organisations needs from month to month.
  • Simple – All your licence costs come from one easy source, rather than having multiple payments for multiple different licenses.
  • Dedicated Support – as your CSP, Bridgeall will be on hand to answer any questions and support requirements linked to your licensing issues.

We are able to provide any Microsoft license across Corporate, Education and Non-Profit Licenses.

We cover the full range of Microsoft solutions including: Azure, Windows, Dynamics 365, Power Platform & Microsoft 365.

All relevant discounts that accompany Education and Non-Profit Licenses are only accessible if your organisation meets the relevant criteria.

One of the main benefits of CSP is the flexibility it provides. With CSP you can easily add or remove licenses and users when you need to.

Our CSP contract is a 12 month contract. This means you must have atleast 1 unit of each license for the 12 month period. For example if you bought 50 Microsoft 365 E5 licenses, you can add as many as you like during the period or reduce this to 1 Microsoft 365 E5 license until the 12 months is finished.

We can offer advise on how to get the most out of your Microsoft licensing. We also offer a licensing review service which can give an immediate ROI and help reduce your licensing cost annually.

The process is simple and allows a quick and visible way to begin your CSP partnership:

  1. Customer shares requirements with Bridgeall, how many and what licenses
  2. Bridgeall provides a tailored quote and any recommendations to reduce the cost.
  3. Customer accepts quote
  4. Customer must sign terms and conditions and provide a purchase order for the quote for the next 12 months
  5. Bridgeall requires to be added as a billing partner to Microsoft platform.
  6. Bridgeall purchases the relevant licenses and makes then available in the relevant Microsoft environment.
  7. Any changes to users or licenses can be requested via CSP@bridgeall.com

Generally billing terms are Monthly in arrears with a 30-day payment term. If the licensing cost for the year is below a £1,000 threshold, we will bill this annually in advance to allow for ease of billing. We are able to offer alternative payment terms upon special request.

Once the full purchasing process is complete your licenses can be assigned immediately. see the question on the purchase process for more information on the purchasing process.
