What do the various part numbers mean for the Small Business Desktop Advantage?

UPDATE: As of October, 2008, platform options (such as the Small Business Desktop Advantage) are now handled through the “Build Your Own Platform” model.  Here is the post that explains this new option for you.

I received a question earlier regarding the different part #s listed on the Open Value pricelist for the Small Business Desktop Advantage (SBDA) and what each meant.  As such, I thought I would provide this quick overview:

 

Part #s:

·         B6K-00052 – New SBDA with spread payments

·         B6K-00050 – New SBDA billed up-front

·         B6K-00053 – SBDA added in Yr 2 with spread payments

·         B6K-00051 – SBDA added in Yr 2 billed up-front

·         B6K-00054 – SBDA added in Yr 3

·         B6K-00064 – SBDA SA renewal with spread payments

·         B6K-00076 – SBDA SA renewal billed up-front

 

          Examples:

o    For new Agreement with spread payments:

§  For PCs on initial Agreement and added in Year 1, invoice customer for part # B6K-00052 for each of these PCs in Year 1 when added, and Year 2, and Year 3 on the Agreement anniversary date.

§  For PCs added to Agreement in Year 2, invoice customer for part # B6K-00053 for each of these PCs in Year 2 when added and Year 3 on the Agreement anniversary date.

§  For PCs added to Agreement in Year 3, invoice customer for part # B6K-00054 for each of these PCs in Year 3 when added.

 

o    For new Agreement paid up front:

§  For PCs on initial Agreement and added in Year 1, invoice customer for part # B6K-00050 for each of these PCs when added in Year 1.

§  For PCs added to Agreement in Year 2, invoice customer for part # B6K-00051 for each of these PCs when added in Year 2.

§  For PCs added to Agreement in Year 3, invoice customer for part # B6K-00054 for each of these PCs when added in Year 3.

 

o    For renewing SBDA Agreement (this would be to renew the Software Assurance for an additional 3 years after the initial 3 year period):

§  For spread payments: Invoice customer for part # B6K-00064 for the total quantity of PCs on the SBDA Agreement being renewed.  You would do this in Year 1, Year 2, and Year 3.

§  For up-front payments: Invoice customer for part # B6K-00076 for the total quantity of PCs on the SBDA Agreement being renewed.  You would do this in Year 1.

 

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
