An unexpected software audit is looming. You need to provide information about your licensing status but you don’t have a precise overview of the situation. It‘s been a long time since the last SAM project and you risk incurring unforeseen costs due to insufficient licences. Does this situation sound familiar?
With SAM2GO, COMPAREX helps you to answer these questions very easily. With analysing your software licences and infrastructure you get a comprehensive overview of licences you have purchased and software that you actually use or have installed. With this analysis you have a licensing statement, which we then use to advise you on the necessary steps to take to pass the audit.
Cost Risks from Audits
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. This is called a »licence shortfall«
Questions such as ‘Has more software been installed than has been licensed?’ or ‘Are all the purchased and maintained licences actually needed?’ can be answered accurately. SAM2GO provides you with customised transparency and professional advice from our experts to help you significantly reduce the risk of costly audits as well as consolidate and lower your software costs.
