VMware introduces Enterprise Purchasing Programme

8 Oct 2012 Palo Alto - VMware Inc. has launched a new VMware Enterprise Purchasing Programme (EPP). Expanding on the current VMware Volume Purchasing Programme (VPP), VMware EPP enables customers globally to purchase software licenses in volume rapidly while benefiting from cost savings, ease-of-procurement and deployment flexibility. VMware EPP is available to customers through authorized VMware partners.

VMware EPP is a token-based programme that offers customers a variety of incentives beginning with significant deployment flexibility, access to latest product releases and value on VMware products and services. The programme also offers customers the ability to mix and match products and purchase at any time - within a three-year term - allowing them to adjust their deployment strategy based on business and project needs. In addition, customers have the option of centralized or de-centralized management enabling them to grant tokens to support different departments or projects as needed. For partners, VMware EPP provides an extended incentive model, facilitates longer-term customer relationships, and helps grow their businesses.

"With VMware EPP, we are making it easier, faster and more advantageous for customers seeking to purchase VMware products and services", stated Ryan Knauss, vice president, Pricing and Licensing, VMware. "This new programme offers customers cost savings, flexibility and ease of management to help them efficiently acquire the products and services required to support their business needs. VMware partners will benefit from a deeper engagement with customers by assisting with product deployment and through increased transaction velocity."

Customers may enroll for VMware EPP via the VMware Purchasing Programs page. Once enrolled, customers can use the EPP Configurator to estimate their need for VMware products over a three year period and the associated number of tokens. To purchase tokens, customers engage VMware authorized EPP partners. Customers can then view and manage their tokens as well as redeem their tokens for licenses and production Support and Subscription via My VMware.
