You should talk to a Microsoft sales rep to see if you can negotiate a deal, the software can definitely upgrade but you will need an account with Microsoft or a Micrsoft Partner (like HP, Dell..) to get in on open licensing, and if you go from retail to open licensing I don't think you will get any discounts. Depending on your companies size and if you have anyone in legal or procurement you could possibly accomplish a discount.

If you are asking about the cheaper upgrade packages, here microsoft said:

"To simplify our Office 2010 product offering, version upgrade suites are no longer available."

Sorry, puterhead is right, I haven't notice the 30 computers part.
Yes, for businesses there is the volume licensing  "open license".
