How we help you with our Managed SAM Services

With our Managed SAM Services, you get a first-class all-inclusive service.

Our well-established Managed SAM Services combines organizational, technological, and contractual aspects in an integrated approach:

From an organizational perspective, we define Roles and Responsibilities to reduce your workload. We ensure that you have Policies and Procedures in place to manage your online services and software. In parallel, we check your Processes to uncover optimization potential and increase your efficiency.

From a technological perspective, Data collection is not only about software discovery and license management. With on-premises software, companies face a considerable risk of being under-licensed. With the introduction of online services and browser-based applications you need to control and monitor the actual usage to avoid over-licensing. An appropriate platform with a central database is essential.

At the heart of our Managed SAM Services is USU License Management (SmartTrack) as your Data Platform, provided by our trusted partner USU Technologies, formerly known as Aspera.

From a contractual perspective, vendors claim that Online Services simplify licensing – we see the opposite. Hybrid licensing scenarios require even more in-depth licensing knowledge. With our Managed SAM Services, you can always rely on the Expert Knowledge of our highly skilled Licensing and SAM Consultants.

In Reporting we connect a vast collection of high-quality data and develop the reports for the respective target groups within your company. We provide you with reports, analyses, and in-depth recommendations. On top, we empower you to use the self-service functionalities. Through our powerful dashboards you get exactly the information you need.
