One of our IT services is licensing consultation.
We offer tailored and comprehensive consultation for all your daily licensing needs.
The number of software applications deployed in a company is rising all the time. In order to keep on top of the organisation and retain an overview in the resulting software and licence jungle, clearly defined responsibilities and structures are required for software licensing and licence management. A personal licensing consultation can help companies when it comes to purchasing new and additional licences, and also include recommendations in the event of the over/under-licensing of software.

Licence consulting for companies of all sizes.
Too many businesses handle their IT asset management carelessly, which is why software management pays off even for smaller businesses.
Bechtle-Comsoft also has a wide range of offerings suitable for small enterprises. Experts advise on how to best utilise functional and scalable solutions, thus saving on costs. The larger the operations and the greater the number of IT seats, the more important licence management is. It is, therefore, worthwhile for medium-sized businesses in particular toe seek advice about licence models.
Flexible licence options for changing needs
Every optimisation starts with an analysis and clean up of the SME’s current licensing situation. Using dedicated tools and experienced specialists, possible discrepancies such as illegal under-licensing and unnecessary, costly over-licensing can be promptly detected. The potential for optimisation in this area alone is not to be underestimated. Over and under-licensing refers to walking a fine line between illegal under-licensing and expensive over-licensing. No matter what stage of development your company is currently at, we develop with you with maximum flexibility.
As well as Head Office IT assets, multinational corporate groups and large companies are also responsible for the licence models for remote affiliated companies and branches.
Affected businesses should deploy licence models strategically, yet this is not always the case. As a rule, companies are aware of their licence management problem but do not know how to bring it under control.
