App Portal Enterprise App Store

App Portal enforces continual software license compliance and controls software deployment, while increasing employee satisfaction and the efficiency of application service delivery. The enterprise app store ensures that governance is in place to check software license availability, obtain proper approvals on software requests, and reclaim unused licenses.

Despite best-in-class procurement processes, organizations can still end up spending too much on software through ad hoc purchases driven by business needs for rapid access to applications. Using Flexera Software App Portal, IT can deliver self-service, rapid access to applications while tying approvals and license management into the process.
