Software asset management – our new partnership

Press release

February 19, 2020

Insights

Working with The SAM Club to optimise software asset management and software license spend.

Some of the biggest IT challenges faced by organisations are how to keep an up-to-date inventory of all the software in use and how to make best use of it in design and deployment decisions.

We come across this regularly in the work we do with customers across all industries but particularly in the legal, financial and professional services, and the public sector. As more organisations take advantage of the cloud and Software as a Service in order to improve agility, productivity and user experience, it is easy to hit a barrier when it comes to managing the assets you are investing in and getting the most out of what you are consuming.

A new partnership

In order to help our customers overcome this challenge, we have partnered with software licensing experts The SAM Club. As the name suggests, they are an independent Software Asset Management consultancy that identifies practical solutions to deal with software licensing, purchasing, renewals, management, re-harvesting and compliance.

“There’s real synergy between SystemsUp and The SAM Club,” explains Nick Martin, Managing Director of SystemsUp. “We both bring a totally independent eye to issues that can be incredibly complex to solve if they’re allowed to get out of control. Our mantra is to make things simple by helping you to document what software you’re using, manage and predict costs accurately, and ensure you don’t fall foul of licence audits and regulatory compliance. By helping you address these key issues, we can work with you to plan your transformational journey.”

Microsoft licensing support

SystemsUp and The SAM Club are both authorised Microsoft partners so, for organisations with a significant or complex Microsoft licensing spend, we provide objective, expert guidance to help you reduce cost and risk and make the right decisions around design and deployment.

Ian Nicholls, Director and Managing Consultant at The SAM Club says, “Although we are software licensing and SAM specialists, we have limited IT technical capabilities. So, by partnering with SystemsUp, we enhance our capabilities to help our clients with their cloud migration considerations and plans.”
