    The OEM Ready Program

    The OEM Ready program is a quality assurance program that increases customers’ satisfaction with partner products.  OEMs that pre-install only OEM Ready applications will be taking their first steps towards a much improved Windows computing experience.  All ISVs who wish to have their applications preinstalled by OEMs need to complete OEM Ready testing or have their software Certified for Windows Vista.

    The OEM Ready testing requirements are a subset of the Certified for Windows Vista requirements that have been identified as key to OEMs. Available testing tools, guidance and a streamlined process make it easier for partners to advance through these requirements in a manner that provides customers the best out of box experience with their software.

     

    Program Benefits:

    Improve customer satisfaction
    The OEM Ready program helps to ensure that applications address the criteria customers use to judge quality: compatibility; reliability; and well-behaved installs and un-installs.

    Fewer calls to technical support
    The OEM Ready tests have been designed to identify and address the most common issues that plague applications today.

    Direct connection to Microsoft
    Guidance, testing tools, a streamlined process and free technical support make it easier for partners to meet and surpass the software quality tests.

    Be ready to capitalize on customer demand
    Rapid customer adoption of Windows will create a tremendous market opportunity for applications that are ready for pre-install and optimized for the Windows platform.
