Q: My department/school uses a specific software application for many users and I'm fairly sure several other departments/schools at UAB use it as well.  Is there a more economical way to purchase that software

A: Possibly, through either a volume discount arrangement or through a site license.  First, contact AskIT to see if any discounts are already in place. If not you can send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  for review. Make sure and include all pertinent information about the product such as areas known to be using the software, number of licenses currently owned, manufacturer, product name/version, etc., and why you feel a site license may be applicable.
