Software Asset Management

Save up to 30% of your software budget

Compliance and optimization

For many organizations, maintaining compliance means overbuying software licenses. Because they can’t see where software is installed and used, they’re overspending by up to 30% to avoid vendor true-up fines. Take the stress out of license compliance with assyst.


A real-time Effective License Position (ELP) lets you align software license ownership with demand

Simple compliance

If license compliance is your responsibility, assyst can help. Automated software discovery shows you what’s installed and what’s in use across your network. The assyst Compliance Engine compares this with the licenses you own, showing you where you’re overpaying and where you’re under-licensed (Effective License Position). Once your license positions are corrected, these reports demonstrate compliance when vendors come to audit.

“assyst allows us to review software license usage, and plan for upgrades and refreshes as well as report on asset related incidents.” 

License optimization

assyst gives you the tools you need to eliminate the guesswork and identify your true software needs. Software metering gives you insights into where software is really used, challenging the assumptions on which historic license purchases were based. Unused software can be remotely reclaimed - helping you avoid unnecessary true-up costs. Usage reports help you make data-driven procurement decisions - so you avoid overpaying for licenses.

"We chose assyst from Axios Systems as it was the only solution that would fully meet our needs and came highly recommended." 

SAM automation

Powerful automation reduces the daily burden of managing software in a large organization. assyst’s comprehensive SAM toolset gives you centralized control over software audit, deployment, upgrade, patching, metering, monitoring and alerts - helping you enforce policies and maintain compliance and security.

"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."
