Software Sales provides information and support for purchasing non site licensed applications that the University has already negotiated deals for. The list of these applications can be found on the Software A-Z section of this website.
All site licensed software can be obtained free of charge directly from mySoftware.
Software Sales is also able to check our resellers for academic and discounted versions of software that are only available to UK Educational Institutions.
Should you wish to purchase software through Software Sales, firstly check to see if prices are given in the Software A-Z section of this website. If they are not or you need to ask us any questions, please send us your query via the IT Service Desk.
Once you are ready to purchase licenses, please fill out a requisition form in your department, have it signed by the budget holder, include the username of the person who will be responsible for the license and hand then it to your accounts team. They should then create an order on Proactis where the supplier is the Applications Software Team.
All Microsoft Select orders should have the line code IOASL-MSL, whereas all other orders should have the line code IOASL-OLM. Orders with an incorrect line code will be sent back to the person who raised it as the Software Sales team is unable to amend line codes. In all cases please include the operating system that you'll be installing the software onto in the description on the order.
Once Software Sales has processed your order, the software will be made available through mySoftware in most cases. In some cases you will receive a boxed product from our reseller or a download link to obtain your software directly from the vendor. Software sales will let you know how to obtain your software.
