Finance and Operations teams worry about software licensing compliance.
Plus, they have to deal with the high cost of managing disparate systems acquired through M&A, as well as revenue recognition, streamlining the quote-to-cash process, managing software entitlements and providing a consistent user experience.
So how can they make quarter end deadlines when dealing with licensing, distribution and fulfillment issues?
Flexera Software's Application Usage Management solutions for application producers help Finance and Operations teams effectively deal with software licensing, distribution and fulfillment issues, enabling them to:
Achieve revenue recognitionDeveloping great software and intelligent devices and selling them doesn't matter if you can't recognize revenue. Doing so requires you to have a purpose-built system in place to automate entitlement management and electronic software delivery, ensuring you can manage essential information and seamlessly integrate it with your other systems such as ERP and CRM.
Streamline back-office operationsRunning a growing software business can be a complex process in the back-office. You need to keep track of who is entitled to what and the sheer amount of data required to do this given the complexity of licensing policies, models and rules quickly becomes substantial. A purpose-built system integrated with your other essential back-office systems (i.e. SAP, Oracle, Salesforce.com, etc.) streamlines back-office operations and helps you uncover new revenue opportunities, save time, eliminate manual effort and improve customer satisfaction.
Deliver a consistent user experienceA customer's first impression of working with you often comes when they download and try to install your product. With a growing product portfolio, delivering a consistent, professional looking experience is challenging. Standardizing on a strategic solution at each phase of the software lifecycle ensures you can deliver a consistent user experience, enabling customer self-service, quick integration of acquired products and reduced costs.
Flexera Software solutions are proven in over 80,000 customers, delivering Finance and Operations the capabilities to streamline operations and meet business objectives. Doing so also provides a solid infrastructure to support the integration of future merger & acquisition activities into a consistent operation and user experience.
