A flexible option
Your software licensing position changes constantly, and the growing complexity of software licensing has seen software asset management become a specialist discipline in its own right. However, it’s difficult to recruit people with the right skills, and expensive to keep them trained and up to date with licensing changes across a broad range of vendor software. As a result, many organisations find that it’s uneconomic to manage their software assets in-house.
Our flexible License Consulting Desk (LCD) is a managed service that combines foundation helpdesk consulting with three optional services to help you maintain, manage and optimise your software assets across the whole software lifecycle, including managing your contracts, software portfolio, licenses and procurement.
Our Foundation Service provides access to our helpdesk for licensing advice, and each quarter we offer a business review as well as software and licensing updates.
Optional LCD Modules
We maintain your software inventory, advise on contract management and assist in the procurement process.
We regularly align the software inventory with your license entitlement whilst providing access to our audit management team, which helps you to better use existing entitlements to meet new demands.
We consider your future licensing strategy and align it with your current entitlement. This services helps you to manage the impact of changes to the licensing contract and assists in vendor negotiations.
