Buying Visio at UW-Madison

UW-Madison departments can purchase Microsoft Visio two different ways (Visio is not available for personal purchase):

  • Visio Standard and Pro licenses can be purchased in the Tech Store Catalog (https://departmental.techstore.wisc.edu/catalogsearch/result/?q=visio) under the Microsoft Select program.
    • One license is required for each installation.
    • These are perpetual licenses, good forever at the purchased version.
    • These licenses can be purchased with or without Software Assurance, which gives you the right to upgrade to any version released during the term of the Software Assurance.
    • After you purchase a license, you'll receive an email with a download link to the installation file within an hour, plus an installation key if one is necessary.
    • The Visio ISOs available after purchasing a Visio license include v2016 and v2019 versions compatible with Office 365.
  •   Visio Online Plan 2 subscriptions are available by special order. Visio Online Plan 2 is compatible with Office 365.
    • Visio Online Plan 2 includes all the features and capabilities of Visio Pro, plus:
      • Database Reverse Engineering
      • Generating PowerPoint presentations from Visio diagrams
      • Data Visualizer
      • Improved Support for AutoCAD drawings.
    • You can install Visio Online Plan 2 on up to five UW- or personally-owned computers, an improvement over the one-license-per-installation model of Visio licenses sold under the Select program. Visio Online Plan 2 is delivered through the Office 365 platform, which means that:
      • Delivery can take up to two weeks.
      • Installation uses click-to-run technology, so can be installed alongside Office installed from the Office 365 portal, but can't be installed alongside Office installed from ISOs downloaded from the CSL. See https://kb.wisc.edu/page.php?id=87819 for more info.
      • Installations are automatically kept up to date.
      • This is a subscription, not a perpetual license.
      • This is a per-user, not a per-device license.
      • Every order must be quoted before purchasing. The time period covered by the quote will be through the next anniversary of our Office 365 agreement, which is October 31st.
      • To get a quote, please email licensing@doit.wisc.edu
