Welcome to EasySAM


EasySAM are an independent Software Asset Management (SAM) consultancy, an impartial advisory body without any agendas other than providing analysis and advice around the software you purchase and deploy. EasySAM helps organisations correct any potential overspend on software and make sure that any risks are proactively identified and addressed.

Software is an asset that is easily overlooked, often not being re-harvested or used to its full capacity. As it makes up a large portion of any IT budget, this is an area where you can see quick returns if managed correctly.

EasySAM can tailor a package around varied needs - from ad-hoc consultancy and training, to baseline reports, to a full managed service. Whether this be for your full estate or just a review of your server or desktop environments, EasySAM support a vast array of vendors and are pleased to report that we are one of Microsoft’s Gold Certified SAM Partners.

With a combined audit & compliance experience in excess of 40 years, our team has successfully delivered over 500 customer audits, currently manage software compliance for 68 customers and have provided measured cost savings exceeding £101m to our customers.

We would ideally like to see you spending less time ‘number-crunching’ and more time making money saving decisions and doing strategic planning with the management data we provide.

Software Asset Management

EasySAM are recognised independent specialists in software auditing and Software Asset Management (SAM). With over 15 years’ experience in helping UK businesses save money and avoid risk on their software estate, EasySAM are the obvious choice for ensuring your software assets are well managed. EasySAM are not a license reseller. This means that our focus during any engagement is on your Software Asset Management and how we can help. You will have peace-of-mind that we don’t have any hidden agendas/sales targets to hit.

Cost Savings and risk reduction

Did you know that EasySAM typically save their customers 8-20 times the amount invested in their SAM program? That means for every £1 invested, you can see a savings of £8-£20! Did you also know that a typical audit settlement is between 10 and 30 times the investment in a SAM service? Food for thought! Software vendors are more active than ever at auditing their customer’s software licenses. Gartner figures show that you have a 70% chance of being audited each year by one software vendor and a 60% chance of being audited by more than one. Being proactive with EasySAM not only means you saving money, but will also understand the risk of non-compliance and be able to have all your i’s dotted and t’s crossed ready for when the vendor comes a calling!

Our expertise

Many companies already have already invested in a SAM or auditing tool. Others need assistance in selecting the right tool/s for their environment and budget. As EasySAM are tool independent, it means we are unbiased and flexible when it comes to tool investments. This means we can work either with your existing tool investments to deliver your services, or can help recommend solutions best suited for you.
