What Are Others Saying About Our SAM Managed Services?


  • Software Asset Manager

    "We could not be more satisfied with our engagement with Anglepoint in managing our IBM space. Our IBM space is fairly complex and dynamic with an array of various products that we leverage sub-capacity licenses. In the past, we spent significant time learning, training, and focus trying to understand ILMT, the bundling, and the various allowances related to terms and conditions. In addition, we had challenges keeping a role internally with someone with just this experience. We struggled to maintain a sustainable process until we engaged Anglepoint. Immediately, AP stepped in and provided guidance, direction, and cadence to ensure we were in the best position to not only meet our compliance requirements but also understand areas for optimization in the space. Every contact at Anglepoint that we've partnered w/ on the IBM review has been extremely professional, significant industry knowledge, and a partner in every sense of the word. Their work speaks for itself, and we have never had so much visibility and confidence in our effective license positions. We are so pleased w/ our IBM engagement, that we've expanded our SAM managed service to other large-risk based vendors. My only regret is we didn't start our engagement with Anglepoint sooner!"

    "Anglepoint really took the complexity out of SAM and Flexera cloud solution that many were warning me about. I knew Flexera was the tool we needed due to the breadth and trust of data. Anglepoint not only got it up and running well for us, but keeps us informed of updates (if we should take them or not), offers to help with system and agent updates if needed. I now have them engaged to enter in all of our software contracts and links to install evidence so our SAM is world-class. Prices are great and expertise is awesome, they know what they are doing. I look forward to a long relationship with Anglepoint as a trusted partner in our SAM operations."

  • IT Asset Manager

    "I've worked with Anglepoint for 8 or more years, with them in my work life I have gained knowledge and experience I wouldn't have gotten because there was no one in my company to give the knowledge and the know-how. My successful working career is in a large part due to their ability to support my job responsibilities. I like to refer to Anglepoint as my bench of pros. I call on them whenever I can't figure out how to solve the issues I'm dealing with at the time. They have more resources to draw upon and help me get to a satisfied resolution to issue."

    "The team we worked with has excellent depth of understanding and experience in working through the details of software license entitlement calculations. They are also personable and maintain a positive relationship with our staff as they help us understand and remediate problematic software configurations. And they have provided effective coaching in working with our publishers. We feel the value for the money we've spent with them has been very good."

    "Our experience with Anglepoint was phenomenal. Their knowledge of the vendor, the vendor's contract specifics and license nuances were immensely valuable. They were always prepared, asked insightful questions and gave us tangible data and answers. Our AP account team presented to our Global executive leadership team and they were able to effectively put it in business terms and enable a healthy discussion on the value of each choice we had."

  • Director, IT Sourcing & Vendor Management

    "I am a sourcing professional working for an organization who has been lucky enough to be audited by IBM and Oracle back-to-back. We used Anglepoint as consultants for both of these audits. Anglepoint's sweet spot is in helping its clients develop and successfully implement an audit strategy, they performed very well on both of our audits. All consultants we worked with were previously software compliance auditors for IBM or Oracle. They provided thought leadership, coaching, and insight into the audit teams' policies and tactics. If you just need someone to help you crunch the numbers you might be overpaying by using Anglepoint, but if you need someone who will be a strategic resource to help with all facets of the audit, I would recommend Anglepoint."
