Are your customers still running windows 7 or 8.1? Microsoft have just announced a new way for these users to upgrade to Windows 10 at no additional cost!
Customers that subscribe to Windows 10 Enterprise E3 or E5, or Secure Productive Enterprise E3 or E5 through Microsoft CSP will now be able to upgrade their Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 devices to Windows 10, without purchasing a separate upgrade license.
The Windows 10 upgrade license that users will get access to for free is a perpetual license, which means that even after the customer stops the subscription on CSP for Windows 10 Enterprise or Secure Productive Enterprise, the Windows 10 license will not expire or be revoked.
The Office 365 tenant administrators with Windows 10 Enterprise or Secure Productive Enterprise CSP subscriptions should now see the Windows 10 upgrade option in the 'Home' view of the Admin Center. The administrator will be able to share the download link, create the installation media and troubleshoot the installation if necessary.
This is the perfect time for resellers to approach customer who are still running Windows 7 or 8.1 and inform them of the great flexibility and upgrade options Microsoft CSP can offer. Combined with the user friendly Crayon Cloud-iQ portal, adding licenses to users and upgrading them to Windows 10 will be like a walk in the park.
If you would like to know more, please contact your local Crayon office who will guide you through the CSP journey.
