The enterprise app store ensures that governance is in place to check license availability, obtain proper approvals, and reclaim unused licenses.
Flexera Software App Portal is a universal enterprise app store for desktop and mobile apps that enables IT to maintain the control necessary to ensure compliance with licensing agreements and corporate policy while reducing enterprise software costs and maximizing software usage. App Portal provides seamless integration with Software License Optimization processes that enable continual compliance and the automated reclamation of unused software to avoid overspending on expensive enterprise licenses.
Enforce Software License Compliance and Governance
- Automatically check availability and reserve software licenses at the time of employee request to eliminate deploying unlicensed software
- Enforce accurate license positions at a global level for compliance and at the group level to support cost assignment to lines of business
- Report on software requests, approvals, installations and purchases to measure success and make sound decisions regarding software licensing and usage across the enterprise
Eliminate Software Waste and Drive Continual Software License Recycling
- Leverage FlexNet Manager Platform usage data to avoid overbuying of costly enterprise licenses by reclaiming software that is installed, but not used
- Enlist the help of employees with the Software Policy ScoreTM informing them of the cost of applications installed on their devices, how often those applications are used, and encouraging them to remove and return the licenses of unneeded applications
- Utilize application downloads and user feedback and ratings to increase efficiency of the enterprise procurement process, optimize vendor contracts, and maintain control of budgets
In addition, App Portal addresses the business need to control the distribution of approved and authorized software applications and the user’s expectations of a consumer-driven experience for accessing IT services in the workplace. Automating one-time software requests and enabling self-service operating system deployments saves hundreds of hours of IT staff time.
