Challenge

The company gathered and integrated user license information across multiple departments for its annual IT Budget Plan. It had always been a challenge collecting such data because the majority of license cost was only based on the request of users and managers. Also, the huge manual effort involved in obtaining an accurate licensing position was error-prone and tedious. With an increasing number of licenses to manage, it had become a big challenge to reduce cost and eliminate idle applications wherever possible.

CPh realized that there was a growing need to produce reliable and accurate software usage reports with the use of a tool that would help the company:

  • automate the process of obtaining an accurate licensing position;
  • carefully analyze the usage of its software assets;
  • purchase licenses based on actual need as evidenced by active software usage;
  • find where to cut cost without compromising business productivity;
  • track the software installed and used on individual workstations; and
  • mitigate the risks associated with audits conducted by software vendors.
