The ups and downs of IT requirements - we cover all the angles
Too many businesses handle their IT asset management carelessly - that's why software management pays off even for smaller businesses.
Small & medium-sized businesses
Comsoft direct also has a wide range of offerings suitable for small enterprises. Experts advise on how to best utilise functional and scalable solutions, thus saving on costs.
The bigger the business - and therefore the higher the number of computer workstations - the more important license management becomes. Medium-sized businesses in particular will find it worthwhile seeking advice about license versions.
Optimum licensing for changing requirements
An analysis and clean-up of the current licensing situation of an SME marks the start of the license optimisation process. Using dedicated tools and experienced specialists, possible discrepancies such as illegal underlicensing and unnecessary, costly overlicensing can be promptly detected. The potential for optimisation in this area alone is not to be underestimated.
Over- and underlicensing: the tightrope walk between illegal underlicensing and costly overlicensing.
No matter the level of development of your company at present and no matter which corporate circles you intend to penetrate – we develop with you, with maximum flexibility.
As well as Head Office IT assets, multinational corporate groups and large companies are also responsible for the license models for remote affiliated companies and branches.
Affected businesses should deploy license models strategically - yet this is not always the case. As a rule, companies are aware of their license management problem but do not know how to bring it under control.
Lowering the Total Cost of Ownership of IT
Depending on the size and structure of a corporate group, procurement of software licenses can be estimated at between 5 and 20 per cent of total IT costs. This may not appear to be that much at first glance but with over 1,000 computer workstations it makes a significant difference if this value is nearer 5 per cent than 20 per cent! Companies who opt for professional software license management can thus easily make savings. Comsoft direct has concentrated on volume licensing and proven itself over a long period as a committed partner.
