Software Asset Management
Could your organization prove complete software license compliance if it were audited tomorrow? Software audits are increasing, as are the fines of non-compliance, and no one is exempt. Can you afford to spend 60 working days (or more) addressing audit requests or exorbitant license compliance true-up fees? Could you defend yourself in an audit dispute?
MCPC Software Asset Management enables your organization to improve financial management and spending, reduce license compliance risk, defend yourself in an audit, and negotiate better contracts.
Minimize your software spend by purchasing under appropriate licensing models, fulfilling new software requests with reclaimed unused licenses, and avoiding licensing compliance true-up fees and penalties.
Maintain software license compliance
Understand your licensing position for any of the major software publishers (like Oracle, IBM, Microsoft, SAP, et al) and address non-compliance issues, minimize the risk of financial penalties from a license audit, and uncover realistic and achievable savings.
Effective audit defense
Our team of ex-auditors will establish a factual and independent verification of your software license position, and using your actual compliance, negotiate the settlements, often reducing the financial penalty by over 75% or, in some cases, eliminating settlement fees entirely.
Negotiate better contracts
Software license contracts are complex, and each publisher includes unique clauses or license metrics. MCPC will help your organization with new software contracts and renewals by baselining your current software position, defining your business requirements, establishing a negotiation strategy, and ensuring a fully cost-optimized agreement with minimized audit risk.
