On our customers' agenda
These services address core business issues facing organisations today.
As the workplace has evolved, reliance on software to delivery services to customers and efficiencies to operations has steadily increased. Faced with increasing demand, complex vendor agreements and concerns over non-compliance,, organisations face the challenge of optimising costs whilst maintaining flexibility and taking a mature approach to asset management.
Few organisations have the time or expertise needed to optimise their software licence procurement strategy and management processes. The extent of these challenges can result in under and over-licensing, reactive renewals, disparate procurement processes that fail to leverage scale and poor software asset management.
With Gartner surveys showing more than 50% of organisations have been audited by at least one vendor annually, maintaining a comprehensive understanding of the organisation's licensing positions is essential. Achieving this goal is even more complex if your environment is subject to ongoing organisational change.
Computacenter's Software Licensing services combine the tools, processes, policies and expertise you need to optimise software within your organisation.
