Software License Optimization

Immediately reduce software costs across the whole estate

– PCs and servers

Show me how it works

Did you know that, on average, organizations have more than $400 of unused software sitting on every PC?

The tricky part is working out which particular bit of software is unused on each device. Even if you can identify it, what can you do about it?

Another consideration is your license compliance. How much software do you have deployed without a license or with the wrong type of license? How many new licenses are you buying when you already have unused copies sitting on PCs today?

  • Do you know how much unused software you have across your PCs and servers?
  • Do you know what your current license liability is?
  • Do you have anyway of right-sizing your license allocations?
  • Are you able to perform short term allocations for software on a per project basis?
  • Are you able to restrict prohibited applications?
