Benefits of SAM
  • Cost Savings   Lower costs that are associated with purchasing and maintaining your software library and IT systems. By capitalizing on overall buying power with vendors and purchasing through single volume licensing contracts, many customers are able to cut costs on the software they purchase. Also, overall cost of operations overtime may go down as your organization becomes streamlined and standardized to optimize tech support requests, network performance, and overall software efficiencies for personnel.

  • Risk Management   Control business and legal risks related to improper software deployment. You also lower chances of malware when you use your SAM plan to ensure only genuine software is deployed.

  • SAM Advantage   Stay ahead of the competition through streamlined operations and faster time-to-market.
