Simple and powerful software licensemanagement tool
Why a License Manager is a must-have?
Staying on top of licenses compliance is the key to keep business successful and honest. Sometimes businesses buy too many software licenses to avoid vendor fines or over-deploy the software.
The software license management tool from ClearApps guarantees the right balance with its software audit tools and software asset monitoring. With all the information it provides you are able to renegotiate vendor licensing agreements and control costs.
Are You Prepared For a Software Audit?
Statistically most IT managers consider their business not prepared to software audits. The usual challenges are:
- Getting a comprehensive and clear inventory of installed software;
- Accurate inventory data collection among all the platforms;
- Having a precise license compliance position, because of the complexity of software license models, and the terms and conditions of various software licenses.
With all the challenges it is not surprising that businesses are exposed to software audits and unnecessary audit true-up expenses.
Understanding the necessity of license management
Start the software license management with finding out where your business currently is (software-wise) and what you own already. Build a baseline of licenses owned by the business and you’ll see the deployment of these licenses better.
The good idea is to use a software license auditor tool which will help you get all the data about software deployments together and detect how many computers are deployed with individual licenses.
With the help of a quality tool you will be able to see if your business fits in software license compliance. You will get an information on who uses which software licenses, see which licenses are not in use, and will be able to reassign unused licenses to those people who actually need them.
All of this creates an easier process of financial tracking of software orders.
