Companies will instantaneously recognize whether they are over-licensed or under-licensed with a creditable License Management. Being under-licensed puts companies at risk and over-licensed creates additional expenses which are unnecessary. Therefore, you can immediately discontinue overage of licenses; thus saving companies huge amounts of money and reducing your annual budget costs.
Many companies purchase a bundle of licenses and have them put on all company computers. What isn’t known is that many users are not using some of these software licenses and this is where license metering becomes valuable. Each license can be measured on each computer by time used and the corresponding dates. For instance, if a user is only using such a software twice a year for 20 minutes this is not a productive license and can be harvested to another user who might require this software daily. If this is not the case then the software can be discontinued. All software information can easily be accessed via report (either automatically or at will) to adjust vendor billing information.
To avoid negative scenarios with under software licensing and avoid risk; a good License Management is absolutely pertinent.
