Compliance Assessment

Compliance overspend is an issue for many organisations. Some are committing vast resources to adhere to regulations set by third parties, whilst others are overspending on compliance for software that they simply do not use. Our Compliance Assessment uses industry-leading tools to analyse and optimise your current software licensing agreements. This comprehensive review of your licence obligations, entitlements and corresponding compliance needs evaluates your software estate quickly and with minimal cost.

Why undertake a Compliance Assessment?

  • Fully understand your software estate before undertaking a large project, such as a desktop migration
  • Mitigate risk by ensuring compliance before vendor audits
  • Prevent overspend on unnecessary software
  • Achieve a position of strength in vendor negotiations
  • Review ROI by understanding software consumption
  • Improve operational efficiency by identifying process anomalies
