Track your licenses and respond fast to any non-compliance issues with SoftwareCentral

SoftwareCentral has two modules for license management, License Control and License Harvesting, that help you analyze how your licenses and software are being used and reclaim underutilized software licenses automatically to optimize costs. SoftwareCentral tracks your licenses to provide a rapid response to any non-compliance issues, intelligently updating the counters using the Configuration Manager metering data.

License Control keeps track of your licenses

SoftwareCentral intelligently uses the Configuration Manager metering data to update the license counters, and provides a rapid response to any non-compliance issues. SoftwareCentral not only keeps track of your licenses it can also automatically reclaim inactive software from clients and block further deployment of applications if no licenses are available. The license tools will make sure that software licenses are used in the most efficient way and avoid unexpected expenses.

Cut cost with License Harvesting

License Harvesting is enabled on an application-by-application basis. Administrators can simply specify how many days an application is allowed to stay inactive on a client computer. When the preset inactivity level is reached SoftwareCentral automatically removes the application from the client and releases the license for redeployment on another client.

License reports

SoftwareCentral provides comprehensive license reports, that show how your licenses are used within the organisation. It is possible to export license data either as a CSV file or as a PDF document.
