Express Online has launched a new Click-to-Licence feature on its website.
The new tool aims to make it easier for resellers to purchase and procure licences, according to general manager, Alison McQuarrie. Microsoft, Symantec and Adobe have been the first three vendors to offer licensing through the facility.
"It's the next step for us in broadening our range to local resellers," McQuarrie said. "The IT channel is changing a bit - licensing is becoming less complex and more resellers are gaining an understanding of licensing requirements and offerings."
The new tool is specifically targeted at resellers that have in-house licensing support or infrastructure and require a portal to obtain their licensing products, McQuarrie said.
"There are information resources available on each of the licensing offerings," she said. "It will include quoting, ordering and all the specific requirements.
"We're seeing a trend in a move away from the box product more towards the licensing product."
McQuarrie hinted there were a few more features the distributor was working on for its website.
