Software Asset Management Services

Get in control of your IT assets and eliminate risks stemming from your vendor contracts. 

We help you implement a strong SAM program at your own pace so that you gain the visibility you need to stay compliant and reduce your TCO.

TCO Reduction

How to Recognize Your Software Asset Management Is Not Optimal

Lack of visibility into your software assets and insufficient internal SAM expertise lead to significant problems.

  • Significant amounts of money are wasted on non-compliance fines

  • Lack of total consistent overview of your IT landscape

  • Diminished strategic infrastructure planning capabilities

  • Preparing for a vendor audit is time-consuming and prone to errors

  • Negotiating a better deal with vendors is difficult

  • The opportunity to optimize your software assets is lost

  • Acquisitions and divestments are fraught with vendor contractual risks

  • Shadow IT becomes an issue

Imagine you have timely, user friendly, trustworthy, and company-wide integrated IT asset data that informs you instantly about the development, operational, and support costs for all IT asset details, including the “who, what, where, when, how and why”.
