Improve Your Bottom Line with Better Software License Management

What is software license management?

Software license management is a set of processes and license management tools that help companies like yours:

  • Manage software license purchases
  • Track software usage
  • Identify license surplus or license shortages to support either saving money or avoiding having to pay for a true-up
  • Document and comply with your actual license agreements

Why does every organization need it?

When you purchase or download any software, you don’t own it. You have only been given a license by the software publisher to use it under the conditions set out in the End-User License Agreement or EULA.

Any unauthorized use can have serious implications for you and your business, as it is viewed as software piracy.

How high are the risks and penalties for piracy?

  • A civil lawsuit against you for copyright infringement
  • Heavy fines of anything up to several millions of dollars
  • Or in extreme cases, imprisonment for the owners of the business

Any of this could happen to you unless you can prove that you have purchased enough licenses for every copy being used in your organization.

The question is, can you afford to run the risk?

Where and why are you at risk?

Unless robust and comprehensive software license management solutions are implemented with the necessary attention, the risk to any organization, including yours, is high. The reasons for this include:

  • Busy business owners and IT teams often put managing software licenses low down their priority list.
  • Software publishers routinely and randomly audit organizations of all sizes for license compliance. Why do they do this? Software vendors see fines and “true-ups” as significant sources of revenue.
  • Employees download and share unlicensed copies of software without realizing the implications.

Protecting you against the risk of legal action requires skill and experience in managing software licenses. CG Technologies can help you to manage and minimize the risk.
