Microsoft licence price increase
Following our messaging on Wednesday 11th of January, we'd like to remind you of changes to the Microsoft licence SKU prices, which will take effect on Saturday 1st of April.
Microsoft has issued this official statement:
"Currencies globally have been impacted differently by the macroeconomic environment, which also affected their exchange rate compared to the US dollar. For a sustained period, we had deferred pricing adjustments based on such currency fluctuations, but as of Saturday 1st of April 2023, Microsoft is realigning Cloud pricing globally."
All Microsoft licences purchased in GBP will increase by 9%; this is a blanket increase and affects all licence-paying customers. The price increase comes into effect from your first renewal date after 1st of April 2023.
For licences on a 12-month contract, this will occur at the end of your contract date. For licences on 30-day terms, this will be a date in April. Of course, Cloud9 Insight is here to support you with this transition.
Following this newsletter, we'll be in touch with you directly with the details of your contract in the next week.
If you have any queries on this matter, reach out to us today.
