Their story: “As customers were coming to us over and over about licensing questions. As we looked to help those customers, it became clear the current approach to dealing with license compliance issues was deficient on many levels. The current suite of software asset management tools had not changed in twenty years. The license experts understood contracts, but not complex architectures. There was no accountability for bad advice. Telling someone the best defense was an annual license compliance audit meant paying for a costly manual process every year. At the same time, this approach did nothing to help minimize the financial exposure to the company. And finding out about a license compliance issues after months or years was not an acceptable solution.
At LicenseFortress, we took an innovative approach to solve the problem that meets the demands of today’s complex architecture. The LicenseFortress solution is state of the art, real-time license monitoring and alerting platform that is developed by license experts that understand both contracts and complex architectures. We then packaged this solution together as an affordable managed service.”
