“Our goal is to be a one-stop hosting solution for our clients,” says Fallahee. “Through our involvement in the SPLA program, we’re making that goal a reality.”

NovelASPect, a leading ASP Provider, recently became a part of Microsoft’s Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) program, making it one of the few application service providers to offer legally hosted Microsoft products.

An application service provider must be a part of the SPLA program in order to offer Microsoft Office; it’s the only program that allows Office to be installed in a shared environment and leased on a per-user basis in compliance with Microsoft licensing standards.

Outside of the SPLA program, there are only two licensing options for Microsoft Office: it can be individually purchased from a retail location (which allows for installation on a maximum of two devices), or purchased under a corporate volume license (which allows for installation on a dedicated server). In both cases, users are obtaining Office on a limited, per-device basis. The SPLA program’s unique, per-user model offers much greater accessibility to users than either of these two options.

The SPLA program offers more than accessibility with its authorized per-user licensing, however—it also allows its partners to tailor service to each individual client. Benefits of participation include a flexible cost structure, no startup costs, no monthly sales minimums, and no required term of commitment.

“Our participation in the SPLA program is the next step up for us,” said Rick Fallahee, CEO of NovelASPect. “We’re very excited to be one of the few companies out there to offer these improved services to our clients.”

Since Microsoft SPLA is the only Microsoft Volume Licensing program that allows commercial hosting of Microsoft products, its partners are also able to offer the most current Microsoft software available. Additionally, as an SPLA program participant NovelASPect is given the opportunity to test and evaluate new software before offering it to clients—ensuring quality and functionality.

“Our goal is to be a one-stop hosting solution for our clients,” says Fallahee. “Through our involvement in the SPLA program, we’re making that goal a reality.”
