Technology & Tools at a glance

  • Baseline Balance

    SAM Tooling can be a key component of an overall approach to managing software assets. However without specialist knowledge many organisations rely heavily on expensive vendor services to implement, manage, support and maintain their chosen SAM technology. Without this constant focus, the data contained in your SAM Tool can become out of date and unfit to empower the very decision making you selected it for in the first place.

  • Cost savings

    We offer a portfolio of engineering and support services to help you maintain the value you had hoped to get when you selected to use a SAM Tool. We can health-check your existing installation to ensure it is still fit for purpose, or we can help you to select and implement a new tool if that is the right way forwards for you. We run a business hours service desk to provide both technical and user support so that you have a single point of contact for all queries. Furthermore if you want to completely remove all resource implications from your environment, we can host and supply your chosen SAM tool  via the Software-as-a-Service model.

Why do I need a SAM tool?

When I purchased my SAM tool the vendor installed it for me, they followed best practice, why would I need to health-check it?

Why should I use your services, why don’t I just contact the SAM tool vendor?
