Russell Hornshaw, IT Manager, Leeds Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust
The ending of the NHS Microsoft Enterprise Wide Agreement has posed us major challenges regarding the control of Microsoft Windows, Office and Client Access Licences (CALs). Managing the transfer of licenses between PCs when they come to their end of life, while obtaining new licenses for additional machines was becoming a major headache.
To overcome these challenges we worked with License Dashboard who helped us select a solution that would strengthen our Software Asset Management processes. Its integration with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, and the expert help of License Dashboard’s audit team has matured our SAM capabilities so that we can now effectively manage and report on all of our software license base.
Catherine Hudson, IT Information and Software Licensing at Northumbria University
Northumbria University offers an outstanding experience to its students, and that’s what we received from License Dashboard. Great customer support, in-depth knowledge and honest answers, all of which helped us choose the right SAM Solution and get the best from it!
Chris Schutter, Project Strategy Manager, Fugro ICT
Fugro provides worldwide geotechnical, survey and geoscience services to oil, gas, mining and construction industries. We use License Dashboard to administer all our software licences and contracts. It was very easy to connect with our proprietary discovery tool. This best of breed combination enables us to generate real-time software asset management reports to prove compliance and find dormant software installations.
During all phases of the project, the License Dashboard support team has been very responsive and knowledgeable.
Ricardo Suarez, Compliance & Support Analyst, Hull College
Software licences are like boxes of spaghetti wrapped in tangled cables, located in the middle of a mine field. Licence Dashboard helps you avoid the mines & unravels the tangles, helping you find what you need quickly & easily. It’s like a single filing cabinet which holds all the information on every licence & agreement, showing the history, licence keys, contracts, renewal reminders and deployed software. In an environment like ours, a multi-site College with hundreds of software products deployed on thousands of computers, servers and mobile devices, it would be impossible for one person like me to manage such a complex task without License Dashboard. It simply restores clarity and transparency!
Gary Thomas, Irwin Mitchell
Our decision to have a Managed Service for License Dashboard was based on a number of reasons; compliance, management overhead and the associated cost savings being the main ones. We now have a clear view of our compliance status at the touch of a button or at the end of the phone without the management headache that usually accompanies this.
This in turn has saved us both time and money because Phoenix deals with all of the administration of License Dashboard, allowing our employees to concentrate on other initiatives.
“We find Phoenix great to work with and would highly recommend License Dashboard and the Phoenix Software Managed Service to anyone interested in getting and, more importantly, staying compliant.”
