3 Reasons to Renew your Software Assurance

If you have an NEC or a Mitel phone system, you may be familiar with the term “Software Assurance”. Software Assurance (SWA) is not only a software subscription, but also a support program. Communication in today’s workforce is critically important – both internally and with customers or vendors. SWA ensures that your communications systems are working optimally and current, minimizing downtime.

Why renew my Software Assurance subscription?

  1. Access to Technical Support. In addition to software upgrades, Software Assurance also allows for Centrality’s technicians to contact the manufacturer directly for technical support services and resources. If SWA is not renewed, and NEC or Mitel technical support is required, a number of tokens must be purchased to receive further assistance. Oftentimes, the amount for tokens needed for an hour of support costs as much (or more) than a one year renewal of SWA!
  2. Protect Your Investment. SWA is designed to protect and complement your existing software licenses and systems.  By keeping SWA current, you get the most out of your NEC or Mitel business phone system investment. Through the latest features and advancements, and security patches ensure that your organization’s communications solutions are stable, secure, and up-to-date.
  3. Simplify Planning and Operations. Simplify your planning by partnering with Centrality. Our team manages your SWA subscription renewal and will notify you when it is nearing expiration. The one-time subscription fee covers an entire year of Software Assurance, as well as peace of mind.

Centrality highly recommends renewing your SWA subscription when it comes due. Contact a Business Development Specialist for additional information.
