“The built-in license knowledge helps manage my organization’s software license evidence and automatically aggregates license entitlement, so that all the license constraints and dependencies are adhered to. The comprehensive audit trails show references between base licenses, upgrades and maintenance renewals so I can calculate downgrade and cross-grade rights according to purchased items – which means I am getting more value from my software investments.”– SAM Manager

Manage software licenses automatically

From the seamless and automatic import of Microsoft Licensing Statements (MLS), to bulk data uploads from reseller records, to the wizard-based entry of individual licenses, License Manager is designed to make the process of building an accurate and reliable license repository as painless as possible.

What’s more, it’s not simply a ‘dumb’ import.  License Manager automatically scours entitlement sources (such as the MLS) ensuring all items are checked against manufacturers’ software catalogues and that special licensing terms, such as upgrades and maintenance, are associated with the necessary base licenses. Likewise, any additional or improved installation granted by grandfathering rights or tech guarantees.

Automatic collation and comprehension of licensing entitlements

License Manager needs just a few minutes to achieve what would take consultants and previous-generation license management solutions weeks, if not months. 15 years of built up software dictionaries have enabled License Manager to hold all historic software records.
