Optimization of the Software License Portfolio

Competent consulting for optimum future licensing

Microsoft Lizenzprüfung - Software Inventory - license management
A key question after preparing a license inventory is the best option for future licensing. We discuss the collected data with you and inform you of weaknesses or potential improvements.

We provide you with comparisons of the various licensing programs and explain the advantages and disadvantages of administration, some of which are significant.

Consulting

One of our central consulting services is the transparent description of the license versions in the course of secure data collection or also on the basis of ongoing contract management. We explain the opportunities for contract negotiations with the manufacturer and the value of the respective solution in regard to upcoming product releases or also previously announced changes to licensing and pricing. Here current knowledge saves money!  

Negotiations

You have decided to conduct negotiations with the manufacturer in the course of an SAM project. We have highly skilled consultants for the purpose, especially in this field, who will work with you closely to determine the approach in case contract negotiations proceed. Not everything is helpful when it comes to concluding negotiations with positive results. Therefore, the leading objective is to include as many positive aspects as possible in the negotiations. Examples include:  

  • Relevant existing licenses for a master agreement
  • Competitive situations, e.g. when you are about to make a decision for one or the other manufacturer of a certain product
  • Including subsidiaries in a standardization contract

Your consultant discusses all of these aspects with you in order to obtain the best possible result in the end.  

Processing/Sale of Licensing Solutions

We specialize in the sale of usage-based licensing solutions, with significant savings potential due to their flexibility and expanded benefits within the scope of annual reporting. Our satisfied customers have been confirming for years that we are on the right track. After a contract is concluded, you have the future support of a team that also knows the practical relevance of the acquired licenses – that is their deployment, activation or distribution.
