Globally, software is considered as goods, services and right with various types of usage and different usage periods. Above all, complex legal issues when transferring usage rights and other tax- and fiscal regulations (withholding tax, value added tax) require professional license management.

Take a look how COMPAREX SoftCare revolutionizes your license management:

We analyze your software landscape in four steps and design the optimum sourcing model for you, taking the following into account:

Step 1

 Step 2

 Step 3

Consolidation into procurement model

  
 Step 4

Support for contract negotiations

  •  reduction of licensing and maintenance costs
  •  use of international suppliers

Complex tax regulations (VAT or withholding tax, for example) play a very important role, particularly in international transactions. Non-compliance may lead to criminal prosecution.

By maintaining a global ERP system with a central hub, COMPAREX ensures compliance with tax and licensing regulations and simplifies cross-border delivery options from 561 to 33!

Compliance – and particularly transparency – are not only important for tax regulations. If more software products are used than are licensed, an audit by a software provider may result in a fine (‘license shortfall’).

If, however, more licenses are bought than are actually needed, there may be potential for savings (‘license excess').

        Cost Risks from Audits
         
    Potential Savings    
         
         
         
This is your software requirement (e.g. 1,000 licenses).   This is the amount of licenses you've actually bought (e.g. 1,200 licenses). This is called a »license excess«   This is the amount of licenses you've currently installed. In this case you have installed more licenses than bought (e.g. 1,200 licenses installed and 1,000 licenses bought). This is called a »license shortfall«

Synchronizing the renewal of existing contracts with different usage periods offers significant potential for savings. The various contracts can then be consolidated and extended collectively. Better terms can thus be achieved during purchasing negotiations thanks to larger contract volumes.
