Access is an information management system that can be used to analyze data on the basis of tables and forms. Microsoft Office Publisher is a desktop publishing program. With Publisher you can design and publish texts and images.

Microsoft Office Open License (OLP) volume licenses 

In addition to the Retail variants of Office, there are also Volume variants. These variants of Office are suitable for companies with more than 5 users of Office. With Volume licenses it is possible to work very flexibly because additional users can be created. In addition, it is also possible to reduce users so that you don’t need to pay for unused licenses.

Tip: Do you want to buy a Microsoft license and use it for business? Then keep in mind that only (Office) volume licenses are suitable for Remote Desktop Services. With RDS, employees can work anywhere from any device.
