Software Licensing​.

Procurement and licensing of software products and compliance with manufacturers’ license terms is a growing challenge, especially for large enterprises. You quickly lose track even with a relatively small number of workplaces. As a licensee, you enter into an agreement with the software manufacturer during the installation, which usually strictly regulates the use of the software.

A violation of the provisions of such a license agreement can have expensive licensing consequences. Our experts put your license management on a secure footing and achieve convincing savings opportunities with our holistic solution, including your license procurement.

Get an overview of your software licenses with one holistic solution.

In contrast to physical goods such as computers and smartphones, which you acquire through a purchase agreement, you receive the right to use the software according to the terms of the software manufacturer when purchasing intangible goods such as software licenses. Just as you get the right from a hotel to use the hotel room for the booked period, you can also use the software for a specific purpose or for a specific period of time. However, subletting is usually excluded in both cases. As different as the intended use of a software can be, so are the business models of the manufacturers. As a result, there are a variety of different scenarios.

Possible Software License Models:

  • Software boxes where you get the software on a physical disk.
  • Classic licensing per workstation or user.
  • Volume licenses for the entire company.
  • OEM licenses for resale.
  • Licensing models where the hardware is limited (e.g. number of processor cores).
  • Subscription models with flexible or fixed validity periods.
  • Cloud solutions like Office 365 License, Azure, AWS, Cisco.

The internal organization of such licensing is often the responsibility of the IT department. They are, however, regularly busy with the daily tasks. Many companies are therefore very neglectful in dealing with this important issue. With our individually tailored services and our know-how, we offer you a holistic solution for your software licensing.

We offer you a clear and transparent overview of your licenses and can reassign them if necessary. A new acquisition, for example, a Microsoft licensing for Windows is then not necessary when changing staff.  Even if you need a license for new software, you can benefit from our extensive partner network and handle your license procurement through us.
