Information Management –
Vendor software licensing is a speciality, it can be complex and the variations amongst the terms can lead to potential compliance issues which can results in penalties being levied.
In recent years software vendors have increased their audit frequency and rigour and although most businesses do not intend to fall out of compliance, it is easily done if no software asset management process is in place.
Our software license and audit team can help you remain compliant, we do all the work so you don’t have to and we remove the worry of a license audit and potential financial penalties.
