Are you constantly dealing with employee turnover within your Software Asset Management (SAM) organization? Are you bombarded by Software Publisher audits and impossible data requests? Were you sold a SAM tool that takes a rocket scientist to implement? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then a SAM Managed Service Provider (MSP) could be the answer to your problems. Here are 3 major benefits to consider when thinking about adding an MSP to your arsenal.
Software Asset Management is likely not your company’s core competency. Instead, let your managed service provider be the software licensing expert and drive value to your SAM function.
Let’s take advantage of that investment you have made in tooling by using your SAM service provider to magnify the value you get out of your SAM tool.
Managed Service Providers can help your SAM department become a trusted advisor for all departments, directly and indirectly, related to SAM (e.g. Procurement, Information Security, Product Management, IT Infrastructure, and IT Finance).
Consider these benefits when deciding if a Software Asset Management Managed Service Provider is best for your organization’s needs.
