Are you paying for unused software? 

Software can be a significant expense for many companies, but how do you know if you’re overpaying for software licenses that may not be needed or may not even be used? With accurate, real-time data from every endpoint in your estate, you’d gain a better view of shelfware and software bloat. With the right data and tools, you can quickly see how much a dynamic software rationalization strategy can save your organization.
