App Portal enables IT Managers to enforce continual software license compliance and control software deployment, while increasing customer satisfaction and the efficiency of application service delivery. The employee driven enterprise app store automates the request, fulfillment and reclamation of software licenses to eliminate waste, ensure proper governance, and maximize usage of enterprise software.

Employing Flexera Software App Portal automates workflows and improves efficiency of the application request process and ensures that governance is in place to check license availability, obtain proper approvals, and reclaim licenses that are no longer used. App Portal provides enhanced visibility into software asset management that enables automated reclamation of unused software to avoid overspending on expensive enterprise software licenses. With the App Portal enterprise app store, IT maintains the control necessary to ensure compliance with licensing agreements and corporate policy, while reducing software costs and accelerating the consumerization of IT. App Portal can boost return on application investment and reduce risk, license fees, and administration cost. In addition, App Portal addresses the business need for rapid, access to software applications and the user’s expectations of a consumer driven experience for accessing IT services in the workplace. The benefits in terms of higher end-user productivity and improved satisfaction are compelling, but the benefits don't end there. Automating one-time software requests and enabling self-service operating system deployments and migrations saves hundreds of hours of IT staff time.
