Citrix Licensing Programs

Public Sector License Agreements

Citrix Education Licensing Program

The Citrix Education Licensing Program is a straightforward and cost effective method for educational establishments or not for profit organisations to obtain Citrix products.

Although this program is designed for educational establishments, publicly funded educational establishments in EMEA may opt to use the Government and Government Education Licensing Agreement Program (GELA) instead.

The GELA Program will be attractive to large educational establishments as there are additional levels/tiers/bands available that offer larger discounts based on volume of spend. The GELA Program is explained in more detail in the next section below.

Citrix apply a points value to their products. To start an Educational Program customers need to order at least 20 points worth of products on their first order – this is very low, particularly when comparing it to the equivalent Citrix ELA level where a customer needs to place an order of at least 10,000 points to obtain the same level of discount.

  • Easy Sign Up - Straightforward online agreement that allows customers to establish terms in advance for all their Citrix purchases.
  • Heavily Discounted Products - Save 40% on your purchase of any Citrix product throughout the lifetime of the agreement (2 years).
  • Campus-Wide Option - The Campus-Wide Option lets customers save even more than the 40% standard discount on XenDesktop purchases while providing every student with unlimited device access from anywhere. Annual subscription pricing is based on a specific full-time equivalent (FTE) student count and must cover all students in the participating school department. Customers may also include staff under the FTE count.
  • Work at Home - For no extra cost, Citrix allow unlimited work at home rights. This includes the use of personally owned computers for school-related purposes.
Citrix Government Enterprise Licensing Agreement Program (GELA)

The Citrix Government Enterprise Licensing Agreement Program (GELA) enables straight forward and cost effective procurement of Citrix products for government organisations and government-funded academic organisations.

Unlike the Citrix Education Licensing Program, tiers are available based on initial spend, which enable customers to enjoy discounts of up to 50%. Like the Education & ELA Programs, initial order requirements are calculated by a points system which Citrix apply to their products. 

  • Easy Sign Up - Straightforward online agreement that allows customers to establish terms in advance for all their Citrix purchases.
  • Heavily Discounted Products - Save 50% on purchases of any Citrix product throughout the lifetime of the agreement (2 years).
  • Campus-Wide Option - The Campus-Wide Option lets customers save even more than the 40-50% standard discount on XenDesktop purchases. For more details on how the Campus-Wide Option works please contact your local Crayon team.
