Software Utilization

Optimize usage and reduce IT costs through effective app license management

The Key to Productivity

At a time when dispersed workforces depend on video conferencing, productivity apps, and other tools to connect and get the job done, having the right software can be critical. But it can also be a challenge to manage all the apps, versions, packages, and licenses needed across complex digital environments, too. That’s why the key to keeping employees productive depends on IT’s ability to track software details and understand how these assets are being used. 

Underutilized Software Can Be Costly

Poor software management can take a costly toll on organizations. All too often, underused/unused software bog down devices, burden IT with unnecessary maintenance, and put a strain on resources and budgets. Mismanaging licenses, too, can impact employee output, preventing many users from getting the license upgrades needed to enhance their digital employee experience and boost productivity. To prevent these issues, IT teams need expanded visibility across digital environments to determine what software is installed, how it's being used, and what employees really need.
