Take Control of Your Enterprise Software Estate

Without SAM processes in place many businesses either drift into non-compliance or do not gain the value expected from their investments in technology.

Manage Your Software Assets

Software Asset Management (SAM) is a practice that enables companies to understand and manage software buying and usage patterns, inventory details, future requirements and contractual terms and conditions, which can result in considerable savings in license purchase costs and support fees, and protection from the risk of license non-compliance.

Version 1’s SAM Managed Service options give you control by delivering certainty on enterprise vendor software license consumption and assurance on your business’ IT compliance position. With Version 1’s range of SAM Managed Services, you will be in a position to avoid unnecessary costs, accurately plan for future software license purchases and avoid any stress from a software vendor audit. Version 1’s SAM business practice is completely autonomous and not affiliated with any software vendor.
