Software Audit

Don't get caught out when vendors such as Microsoft and Adobe ask for a software audit. Large software publishers regularly audit their customers to ensure contracts are being adhered to and profits are reached.

It's a time consuming task to collate the large volume of licence information required. This is made more daunting when faced with the threat of large fines and non-compliance reports.

Luckily Advantage Business Systems will make this dreaded event much easier and will assist you in maintaining and adhering to software licence rules.

Why do I need a Software Audit?

  • Maintain Compliance
  • Avoid Fines
  • Save Money

How can Advantage help with this?

Using vendor specific and proprietary tools we collect, organise and report the software running on every server, laptop or PC in your workplace. This process can be done as an ongoing event, or as a one off for an upcoming audit.

Our highly trained IT professionals and consultants then assess your licences in relation to your software contracts to ensure you are not liable for a hefty fine or prosecution.

What does the audit involve?

  1. We begin by taking the time to meet with you face to face in order to get a clear understanding of your current IT systems and any licence information you may have.
  2. Next, our complex licence audit tools will run on all servers, laptops and PCs to detect, record and assess licence usage across the board. This includes all Microsoft and all third party software licences such as Office 365.
  3. The penultimate step sees one of our professional IT consultants assess your licence agreements and see if the information marries up with the audit results to make sure you are sufficiently covered.
  4. Lastly, all licence agreements will be checked and put into a report where you can see where there may be gaps in your compliance or ways to save money on the licences held.

Your Final Report

Once the audit is complete, you'll receive a report containing a fully comprehensive breakdown covering each piece of software and each device checked. This will detail any gaps in your compliance where you may be liable for fines or prosecution. It will also explain ways you can save money on your licensing through reduction in numbers or change of supplier.
