MS Office OEM secondary use
I have a requirement to put an instance of MS Office on some PCs that we use for training. Because the machines are often used by multiple users I cannot deploy a named user subscription to MSO365, and so I asked a supplier to investigate any possible options for purchasing MS Office 2016. My supplier has responded with the following:
"I can ask our distributors for a boxed OEM Office licence once I know the specific machine that it will be run on. Please let me know the spec and how many machines need this type of licence and I will arrange a quote for you."
Now - my understanding of OEM licensing has been that the licence is tied to the machine it is sold with and cannot be transferred. Therefore I cannot understand how the approach my supplier has suggested is in any way appropriate. Can anybody advise if you've experienced this kind of approach to OEM licensing in the past? Should I just walk away from my supplier? I would greatly appreciate some guidance from the community here.
