Tracking software compliance, detecting unauthorized and illegal software usage, and managing software licenses for every client account are all part of your regular service routine as an MSP. Automated software license management involves recording, tracking, maintaining, and associating software licenses in an organization, in an effort to comply with vendors' software agreements and eliminate manual effort.
When you're managing different client accounts' IT assets, you need to watch out for two things: 1) having too many licenses and 2) skipping license renewals. While the former can put an unnecessary strain on your IT budget, the latter poses a threat to software compliance. With a software license management system, you can reach that fine balance of achieving software license optimization and compliance.
You can turn to ServiceDesk Plus MSP, help desk software designed specifically for MSPs, to help you manage every aspect of your IT services. Software license management becomes a breeze when you use this tool, as almost every significant action is automated, including periodic software scans and license renewals. An added advantage is that you can create as many license types as required, in addition to the default types offered in the application.
