The Company Administrator is nominated for the role at the point of completing your cloud application order with our sales representative. They’ll be the first person on-boarded to the marketplace in your organisation account.
A Company Administrator can buy products and assign product licences to particular Users. They can also access and change most of their company’s data held on the marketplace. Company Administrators also have access to all the transaction records (known as invoices on the marketplace). This allows them to verify that the summary bill the company receives from us is accurate.
You can have multiple Company Administrators in your organisation. However, the Company Administrator has the ability to make changes to your marketplace account and buy products on behalf of your organisation. So we recommend that you restrict this role to specific people.
Please note: If you’re an existing customer and are being moved over to the marketplace, the Company Administrator will be the person that we’ve recorded as the existing administrator of your Microsoft account.
