Enterprise application vendors do not design their license policy to be easily understood. As a result of this customers often find themselves paying for products that they do not require and overpaying for the ones that they do. Software users are often unaware of vendor rules according to contractual obligations. Vendors can conduct a license audit and non-compliance can result in unexpected costs and stress for the customer.
Version 1 License Management can provide the full lifecycle of software licensing consultancy services, ensuring our client’s enterprise application license estates are fully optimised and under control with regards to cost, license compliance and complexity.
