Microsoft optimization recoups $150,000 in first year of deployment
"Snow gave us the insight that 90% of users didn’t need Microsoft Office ProPlus so we downgraded 1500 licenses, making a saving of more than $150,000”
Rebecca Snoblen, Ardent Health
“At the George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust we wanted to invest in our software compliance management process as the legacy solution we had was becoming unreliable and out of date – we were maintaining a spreadsheet of IT assets and associated licenses. To ensure we had a true picture of not only the licensing of our estates but usage too, we agreed that the current process was inadequate and in need of change.

“At the George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust we wanted to invest in our software compliance management process as the legacy solution we had was becoming unreliable and out of date. Therefore we decided to invest in a dedicated solution that would enable the overall visibility and centralized management of our licensing allocation, and chose Snow License Manager as we knew the importance of accurate reporting and insight into our estate for proactively managing our assets and only purchase licenses we actually need.”
Neil Moss, Head of Technical Services
"We chose Snow because we wanted to get a full overview of software and hardware across the BMJ estate, as well as ensuring compliance with our licences in our UK and ROW offices."
Aaron Townsend, Head of Service Delivery, BMJ - The Global Healthcare Knowledge Provider
“More important than monetary savings is the confidence level we have in how compliant we are with our Microsoft agreement. Especially when it comes to SQL, Visual Studio and other applications that, in the past, we didn’t have a great hold on. Snow is great for us, because rather than worry about compliance we can focus on getting our frontline co-workers the tools they need.”
"St George’s made a decision to purchase Snow License Manager, as we realise the need for effective and proactive license management in the public sector. By using a product that has a large footprint in the NHS, we are able to find areas of cost savings, remain compliant, as well as manage our hardware estate, all in one place."
Pushpak Nayak, Head of ICT Operations, St George's University Hospital
VieCuri Achieves Software Compliance with Snow License Manager
"Large organizations like VieCuri cannot properly ensure their compliance without a software asset management solution. We opted for Snow because Microsoft performed an audit at VieCuri with it. What is good enough for our primary software vendor is good enough for VieCuri."
Niek Janssen, Enterprise Architect, VieCuri
"We decided to purchase Snow License Manager because we wanted to gain full visibility of all hardware assets across the RCOG estate, whilst also ensuring we remain compliant with all of our software vendors"
Robert Riley, Royal College of Obstetricians, IT Manager, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
