How much could you potentially save?

Gartner estimates that as many as 70 percent of mid-sized businesses and larger enterprises face an external software audit by the end of each calendar year – so your chances of an audit you aren’t prepared for are pretty good. Additionally, studies show that non-compliant companies received average fines of about £30,000 for each piracy instance! Is this something your organisation can afford?

On the other hand, an article published in IT Week claims that every corporation has as much as £390 in unused software on each PC. Re-harvesting this cost for other users would be a nice cost saving on IT spend. Not to mention that a good Software Asset Management programme encourages standardisation and therefore reduces helpdesk time and costs, with many companies that utilise software asset management solutions citing average reductions in helpdesk call length of as much as 20%.
