Software Metering & License Control

Quantify the real business need for software

Uncover your organization’s true software need

An effective licensing position will tell you that your software installs are covered by licenses, but this is only half the story. Many apps are installed but never used. Software metering shows you the truth about software demand by identifying how and when it is used. Armed with this information you can remove unused apps, reclaim licenses, and reduce  software spend by 30% or more.

Software metering

Establishing an effective license position will help you achieve license compliance and cut software costs, but to fully optimize license management you need to go a step further. assyst actively meters application usage so you can see how frequently they are used.

“Since implementing assyst we've noticed a remarkable improvement in reporting – we are more efficient as an organization."

Software control  

Where apps are unused, logins can be automatically removed and software remotely uninstalled. Where apps are used infrequently, precise metering data helps you work with business stakeholders to rationalize licenses and find savings without disrupting business processes and capacity.

“We can find reliable asset information in seconds. This has freed up an enormous amount of time, which can be spent on more productive tasks."
