According to COMPAREX, Software Asset Management (SAM) is the combination of processes, procedures, setup, tooling, policy and knowledge that allows an organization to manage its software from purchase to renewal. SAM is closely related to - and actually includes - license management. License management entails organizing software licenses, followed by optimizing the use of software licenses and therefore reducing their costs.
Experience and analysis show that software licenses form a large part of the IT budget. Costs and contractual obligations force companies to utilize their licenses as efficiently as possible. Our service includes a continuously high quality and the possibility to set up a contract including result guarantees.

Questions like ‘did we install more software than we have licenses for?’ or ‘ do we really need or use all the software we have?’ are now answered accurately.
