Software Asset Management & The Procurement Manager

Get the best deal for the organization based on real data

You’re the organization’s go-to person for software procurement. They know that if they need it fast and at a good price, you’re the person for the job.

You don’t need a Software Asset Management solution.

Or do you? When you’re making that purchase of new software licenses, are you sure you don’t already have spare entitlements lying around? When you’re negotiating the annual support agreement, do you know how many copies of the application are actually being used?

Software Asset Management could just be your best friend.

Make the right purchases at the right time

Users’ need for new software is insatiable, whether on the desktop, mobile or in a virtual datacenter. The more they have, the more they want. But are their demands justified? By having complete visibility of software usage and entitlements, Procurement Managers can reuse existing investments or offer better-value alternatives that save the organization money.

That’s Software Asset Management.

Negotiate from a position of strength

You pride yourself on getting a great deal from suppliers. Your negotiation tactics are legendary. But you’re flying by the seat of your pants. Wouldn’t it be more effective to base negotiations on the facts of software installs and usage over time, rather than guesswork? You could see exactly how many applications have been deployed, what versions and how much they are being used.

That’s Software Asset Management.

Demonstrate your value

You know you’re good. But wouldn’t it be great to show the value you bring to the organization in hard facts? How about management reports that show how software expenditure or vendor agreement costs have changed year on year, or how software utilization is fully optimized?

That’s Software Asset Management.
