Software Asset Management Licensing Pre-Audit by Computer Solutions East, Inc (CSE) prepares a business for the final audit of the software that they have purchased. It prevents them from being vulnerable to the sanctions of being overdue licensed software users. The objectives of the licensing pre-audit service are to reduce the possible amount of financial cost of penalties, and more importantly, the damage to the reputation of the business.
Software Asset Management is defined by Microsoft as “a reliable industry method that employs a set of secured procedures for handling and enhancing the company’s IT assets”.
Software License Compliance is commonly overlooked by SMBs thus, the number of allowable devices where the software can be installed, the number of users, and the validity of the licenses are not being consciously monitored. Some business owners let these instances pass without understanding that these might be detrimental to their entire business once the software publisher has audited them. Hence, CSE’s service becomes more essential to the business’ long-term investment by doing due diligence in license checking.
“CSE’s Software Asset Management Pre-audit has helped companies to eliminate the risk of penalties. I really see this Pre-audit as a privilege for SMBs to keep track of their licenses without the carrying the burden. This is CSE’s way of helping small and medium- sized businesses (SMB) to spend less in software compliance fees since the penalty for an audited uncompliant software license may consume the entire budget of an SMB,” Gerald Villanueva, the Operations Manager of CSE said.
