The increase in productivity offered by FlexNet Manager Suite has enabled the company to roll out its SAM Managed Services to more than 40 medium and large enterprises to date, and the number is growing. They also use the Flexera Software license management and optimization technology internally and have achieved significant cost savings on software from several key vendors.
FlexNet Manager Suite for Enterprises was implemented to automate the software asset management (SAM) and license optimization process. IT asset inventory is being collected, SAM process improvements were made and automated license reconciliation and optimization were put in place. As a result, the company is saving time and money and has gained the management precision needed to efficiently utilize its limited IT staff and budget resources.
