Home Use Program

"Once we implement Microsoft Office, the employees who have participated in the Home Use Program will already know how to use the software and will not spend their time learning it in the workplace."
Denyse McConnell, Business Analyst, Telus

Use Home Use Program to:

  • Help accelerate familiarity and use of new Office products
  • Help increase employee skills and productivity

With the Home Use Program (HUP) your employees can get the latest version of the Microsoft Office suite to use on their home computer through a low-cost download. When employees use the same software at home and work, they naturally gain more skills which helps improve productivity.

Before you use:

Activate HUP and Get Your Program Code
For the Software Assurance Manager, offering the Home Use Program to your employees is easy.  Simply use VLSC to activate HUP and give the resulting program code to your employees so they can order directly from the HUP Program Web site.


Get the Word Out
To help you communicate the value of this program to your employees, we have created banner ads, flyers, email templates and other digital content that you can easily download and distribute to your employees.

When you use:

Have Your Program Code
If you are an employee purchasing products under HUP, you must have a valid work email address and program code from your organisation's Software Assurance Manager.


You'll be asked to enter your work email and program code on the Home Use Program Web site. Once accepted, you will receive confirmation and a follow up email that will allow you to purchase products under HUP.


Order for your entire organisation
To help deploy the Home Use Program across your entire organisation, digital bulk order is available.
