Why Do We Need License Management Feature?
What Exactly Is License Management?
Let's us assume an organization comprises of 5000 users and it purchases 5000 user licenses. Gradually, over the years, about 1000 employees drop out of the organization. Then, it means 1000 licenses, for which the organization made a payment, is being wasted! Now, what if the product offers the organization a chance to reuse these licenses,by giving it to new arrivals?! After all, an organization is a place where there will be steady influx and efflux of employees!
Well, this is "license management" in a nutshell - as simple as that! Manage user licenses, so as to provide the organization maximum benefit.
Clients get their money's worth. No wastage of licenses = no wastage of money.
Since old licenses are reused, there is no need to buy new licenses for new arrivals. More savings.
Everything is organized.
In short,"license management" performs a sort of "drain the swamp" work for keeping an organization in an orderly manner.
