In the DCLG document “50 ways to save – Examples of sensible savings in local government”, Eric Pickles suggests that councils can save money by conducting a review of software licenses across the authority.
Many organizations purchase more software licenses than they need because they have no way of knowing who is using what and as a result, over-compensate and over-estimate software license requirements.
At The Business Software Centre we specialise in software efficiency. Our software usage metering solution – Rentsoft Meter – measures software usage by the minute for every user. It is quick and easy to conduct an assessment and provide your organisation with a tailored Software Efficiency Rating chart along with ways to save money if you are not meeting benchmark efficiency levels.
