Product Description

License Dashboard License ManagerLicense Dashboard License Manager logo

A software tool to assist with the management of an Institution's installed software base.

Advanced licensing and audit reconciliation in an intuitive software solution, License Manager achieves the most accurate and advantageous reconciliation between software usage and license entitlements by automatically:

  • Importing and validating license entitlements from multiple sources (Microsoft Licensing Statements, Vendor and Reseller reports, individual license documents)
  • Calculating downgrade and cross-grade rights according to purchased items
  • Importing and cleansing software audit data from any inventory solution (includes over 60 connectors to inventory)
  • Reconciling usage against entitlements to calculate the most advantageous Effective Licensing Position (ELP) for the organization
  • Advanced Reporting on software installations, licensing position, compliancy, purchase history, maintenance contracts, software usage, cloud user data, Office 365, Azure, Active Directory and user licenses.
