We analyse your software landscape in four steps, and thereafter design the optimum sourcing model for you, taking the following into account:
Demand analysis of core products
Demand analysis of additional products
Consolidation into procurement model
Support for contract negotiations
All measures are based on our expertise in licence programmes, products and contracts of the software vendors. COMPAREX maintains excellent relations with all the leading representatives of the industry and holds almost without exception, the highest certification standards. Overall, our portfolio includes products from more than 3,000 suppliers.
Our global market coverage enables us to make international comparisons to find the best price worldwide with our unique cloud-based global sourcing system.
To this end, we make use of:
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 (‘licence shortfall’).
If, however, more licences are bought than are actually needed, there may be potential for savings (‘licence excess').

|This is your software requirement (e.g. 1,000 licences).||This is the amount of licences you've actually bought (e.g. 1,200 licences). This is called a »licence excess«||This is the amount of licences you've currently installed. In this case you have installed more licences than bought (e.g. 1,200 licences installed and 1,000 licences bought). This is called a »licence shortfall«|
Synchronising 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.
COMPAREX offers tailored solutions for your software procurement and administration according to your specific requirements – from a simple web shop up to a fully integrated e-supply chain.
