Benefits of purchasing xViz visuals directly from Microsoft AppSource:

  • License management from the Microsoft 365 Admin portal – assign or revoke licenses from individual or O365 groups.
  • Direct purchase from Microsoft would ease the process of procurement like setting up Purchase Orders for a new vendor or having a reseller purchase on your behalf.
  • Cost-friendly pricing plans – We have introduced new pricing plans on AppSource for xViz visuals.
  • User-friendly plans - No differentiation between report creator/editor and report viewer. So report creators/editors need not pay extra for accessing the visual in edit view.
  • Seamless renewal - No need to change the visual build/key on renewal in the reports for the xViz visuals.
  • Free one-month access to the basic starter plans for you to evaluate the visual with full capabilities.
  • Automatic update of the visuals when a new version is released to AppSource.
  • Certified custom visuals that support export to PDF and PPT.
