In a tough economy, companies cannot afford to waste money, yet many companies are hemorrhaging millions of dollars in unused software licenses. It’s not just the one time expense of purchasing the license, but the ongoing expenses associated with support contracts and upgrades.
Unused licenses are caused by more than downsizing employees. Many software applications are installed on company computers and never used again. If they are used, it is infrequently and the company would be better off with floating licenses.
But how do you know how many licenses you need? The answer is computer monitoring software like EffectivePro. EffectivePro logs software usage and then quickly summarizes the usage data in colorful reports with graphs so that you can make decisions to save your company millions of dollars.
