Do you know where your licenses are?
Managing software purchases can be a headache. You might have a volume licensing agreement but no deployment plan to get the software into the hands of your end users, or maybe you purchased additional licenses but don’t know if they’ve actually been deployed. And when people leave your company, are licenses redeployed? With staff and IT assets constantly moving around, it can be hard to keep tabs on how many software licenses you have or if they are even being used.
That’s where we come in. Our job is to assess your software license situation and make sure you’re only paying for the licenses you need. We also take care of publisher renewals and ensure your end users have the software they actually need, rather than things they don’t. We are an authorized reseller for 400+ software publishers, which means we have a lot of experience managing licenses and insight into each of the publishers that we deal with. Our national team can make managing licensing requirements a breeze.
Compugen didn’t give me just one way to do things, but rather showed me various options, including one we could easily grow into down the road.
Here’s what we can do for you:
- Offer assessments that tell you where you are today, and more sophisticated assessments that give you a roadmap for the future
- Deploy and track your licenses, making sure you never get flagged for non-compliance
- Keep track of your upgrade and renewal schedules for the software you deploy
- When equipment is pulled out of circulation, we'll flag the licenses so you can reuse them on other systems rather than pay for new ones.
What does this mean for you?
A company with international operations approached us about the best way to upgrade a piece of software. We conducted a license review and found the customer had 155 licenses that were not being used. Since it was less expensive to upgrade existing licenses than buy new ones, the customer chose to upgrade half of the newly discovered licenses and saved $13,000 in planned costs.
That’s how it works.
