License and Contract Management
License Inventory Management
Market research institutes found that 23 percent of all newly purchased software was not actually used. The total value of non-installed software that is not installed is about $ 400 per computer. Accepting license failures and over-licensing with active license management often leads to significant potential cost savings.
License violations pose a risk to all businesses. Automatic license management provides full transparency of your current license inventory and actual use. By monitoring unauthorized software installations through automated license management, you can be confident that there is no unlicensed software in your company.
Activity-based software licensing offers a huge potential to lower costs. Automated license management, a component of Matrix42 License Management, enables cost-effectiveness-based identification and licensing of departments in which bills are ordered.
