Effective Software Asset Management (SAM) usually requires a full time SAM manager, or at the very least a considerable amount of someone else’s time within the IT department. But if you simply do not have the resource, you may want to consider outsourcing. The ever changing world of licensing is a hard subject to stay on top of, and even if you are confident in this area dedicating a lot of your time to mundane number crunching isn’t the most productive use of your time.
Outsourcing the ‘number-crunching’ element of Software Asset Management, allows organizations to rather focus on the results of the periodic reviews, allowing them to capitalize on the information provided. Thus halving the turn around time on reducing the risks identified and delivering those much needed cost savings. Data provided during a managed service with us will also deliver foresight into future software planning as well as an advantage when negotiating software agreements with manufacturers.
As with all our services, our SAM Managed Service can be tailored to best suit your organizations needs and budget. This means that the SAM managed service can be department, environment or device class centric if you need it to be. The reviews can be scheduled as often as you require and there is no fixed term for the service. And you may also ask us to manage as many or as few software vendors during the contract, no minimum obligations in terms of span. Most important of all, as EasySAM do not resell software licenses, so you can have peace of mind that we always act in your best interest
