The Nuance Open License Program (OLP) is a convenient, easy to use volume purchasing program designed to enable end user customers to maximize their savings potential by accumulating points for their Nuance products and support purchased for internal use.

A certificate based program, the OLP allows companies to license software for use, rather than purchaseboxed” products. This reduces manufacturing costs by eliminating the cost of media, documentation, packaging, warehousing, and shipping. These savings are then passed on to the customer in the form of a discount off the standard price. It is easy to qualify for the OLP with its low initial purchase requirement.

 How OLP Works

The Nuance Open License Program (OLP) uses a point-based system to establish and track discount levels.

Each product included in the OLP is assigned a point value. The more licenses committed to in your initial purchase, the better your discount going forward. For maximum benefit, you’ll want to determine your needs for at least the first six months, and purchase accordingly. You must purchase one license for every individual who will be using the software.
