Software Asset Management is Strategic to Your Business

In the past SAM was thought of as a nice to have or something you quickly cobbled together if hit with an audit. Today, organizations have realized that having a proactive SAM engagement that combines the best in people, process and technology provides a level of actionable information to a company that allows them to drive change, save money and keep their software estate protected. Today’s blurred lines of on-premises and cloud, lack of visibility into who own what and which employees are using what software bloats budgets and leaves companies vulnerable to audit and data insecurities. SAM can stop all of that. SAM with SoftwareONE takes the burden off of your in-house resources as well.

Highly experienced SAM, Software Portfolio Management, Software Lifecycle Management, Procurement, and technology services experts serve as trusted advisors for our customers.

We provide real-time insights and we always work on the customers’ behalf, helping them maximize their returns to drive innovation. We are tool agnostic with global focus and global purchasing power.

We work with the top software asset management tools in the industry bringing you the optimal experience in data collection and analysis to make sure your SAM program is successful.

Enhanced Security

This is in relation to both audits and knowing your software estate - the more detail you have on what is deployed the better you can protect it. SAM helps you do this.

Increased Intelligence

SAM provides companies with a full report of what is deployed, the contract terms, and license inventory, enabling you to make smarter IT decisions in regards to software deployment and consumption, resulting in marked cost savings.

Leverage Resource Expertise

Not every organization has the internal resources to conduct a SAM engagement. Using a third party tool and the related expertise behind the tool, alleviates the burden on your IT department.

Reduce Costs

Over one third of software deployed is wasted. SAM provides the information you need to clamp down on wasted costs.
