WE’VE all got a tendency to hang on to items we don’t really need on the premise that ‘it might come in handy one day’.
The same logic applies to companies and software licenses, especially medium and large organisations who believe they have far more important things to worry about than collecting licenses like a child coveting football stickers.
Adopting such a willy-nilly approach to asset management is fraught with danger – and unnecessary costs. All unused software licenses cost money that could easily be better spent on something else.
Also, and watch out for the ‘l’ word, incorrect or incomplete licensing constitutes a significant legal risk which could spark claims from software manufacturers and the threat of financial penalties.
Sounds nasty, eh? Well, you can stop panicking because DeskCenter Solutions has the answer.
