Software License Compliance


Are you leaving licensing revenue on the table?

Few software companies have a coherent, consistent approach to safeguarding and ensuring the accurate and timely delivery of licensing revenues. An effective software licensing examination can uncover thousands or even millions of dollars in lost income due to errors or contract misunderstandings. A well-run software license compliance program can be a self-financing program as well as best business practices.

Other benefits include:

  • Improved customer compliance
  • Greater reporting accuracy
  • Incremental income streams
  • Renegotiated contracts
  • Basis for additional services

Selecting the right licensing team to oversee your compliance program is vital.
