WARRINGTON, U.K. - Feb. 22, 2024 - PRLog -- Certero, leaders in unified IT hardware, software, SaaS and cloud asset management, announced a multi-year agreement with Jisc, a not-for-profit negotiating body representing UK higher education and academic research institutions. Under this partnership, the companies will launch the Certero Chest agreement, providing preferentially priced academic licenses for their commercially available software and selected services.

Integral to this agreement is access to a suite of products powered by Certero's unified platform, which enables organizations to address a broad range of IT visibility, governance, cost-optimization, and risk mitigation challenges, all through a holistic 'single-pane-of-glass' solution that spans common environments – including Mac, Windows, Linux, Unix, etc.

Jisc members can access the following Certero on-premises or fully provisioned SaaS solutions:
  • Certero Enterprise Standard Edition – A streamlined IT Asset Management (ITAM) and Software Asset Management (SAM) solution, offering centralized visibility of all networked assets with an IP address. With advanced discovery capabilities, it automatically recognizes software and provides real-time control over software licensing, effectively putting an end to the typical 30% overspend on software that organizations often incur.
  • Certero App Centre – A self-service software portal that enables users to independently access applications while offering IT departments control for compliance and cost management; featuring a customizable interface, it allows automatic installations or multi-level approval configurations.
  • Certero for SaaS: M365 and Adobe – A solution to see, manage, and eliminate overspend of SaaS subscriptions –typically, a 50% saving on what you're currently paying for".
  • PowerStudio – An out-of-the-box, enterprise-level, PC power management software solution which, by applying centralized computer power policies, enables organizations to meet energy-saving goals without affecting user productivity.

"With digital transformation at the top of the education sector's agenda, the agreement with Certero to deliver a range of SaaS products that address a range of IT needs through one interface will bring cost and efficiency savings and support institutions in their digital transformation goals," said Caren Milloy, director of licensing at Jisc.

Certero complements the above products with a range of services delivered by its in-house services function, including:
  • Implementation and Configuration Services - Ensure correct installation, coverage, and personalized configuration for your new solution, guaranteeing peace of mind and maximizing the technology's value quickly.
