Compare to FlexNet Manager.

 

Here's how to justify License Asset Manager's ROI:

With License Asset Manager you can:

  • Reduce annual license costs 15-20% for easily quantifiable ROI.
  • Track all shared and standalone licenses. Knowing where all licenses are and who is using them is a good first step.
  • Show your actual current checkouts, who has the license, how long it has been checked out, and if someone is “camping” (checked out but not in use) on a license, you can send them a “Warning” email.
  • Create  “read-only” portals for engineers to see current checkout status of certain Licenses, how many are available.
  • Show your historical usage by license, by user, by site, for any time period.  With that information you can see how often Max checkouts have occurred.
  • See usage trends for making decisions.
  • Show concurrent usage stats as a % of time
  • Monitor all license servers and daemon, and know immediately if a server or daemon goes down with daemon-down alerts
  • Long-checkout and capacity-threshold alerts
  • Expiration alerts, via email, far enough in advance, will allow you to renew licenses without service interruption.  You don’t want license keys shutting down in the middle of a project. With more advanced warning, you can better plan vendor negotiation strategy.
  • Create charge-back reports by User or Group  (for license utilization)
  • Be prepared for an internal or external audit for licensing compliance.  Be able to show PO, cost, contracts, time periods. Provide associated documents for each vendor.
