Manage and optimize software licenses
Are your software licenses earning their keep? Or are too many sitting idle, rolling from one renewal to the next, wasting money? Effective software license optimization starts with full discovery, so unused software can be reclaimed and redeployed. With Snow Spend Optimizer, you have the power to make every asset pay its way and generate huge cost savings.
Plan ahead for renewals and contract negotiations
For many organizations, software license renewals are often a fire drill, with little time for preparation and a lot of scrambling to gather data. SAM, IT and procurement leaders often resort to renewing the same quantity of licenses or subscriptions as the previous period. Using Snow, you see detailed usage information so you spend less time chasing data and more time thinking about optimization and cost savings, putting you in a position of strength in renewal negotiations.
