1. Conduct a free assessment
Express Software will perform a free assessment of your environment. We’ll work with you to install our Survey™ software on a representative sample of your IT estate. After 30 days our detailed reports will show you your specific areas of savings. This assessment is risk-free and allows you to discern the potential returns from a full deployment of Survey in your organization.
2. Deploy Survey in the organization
Once you have seen how Asset Intelligence data can free up budget, install Survey to monitor your entire organization. Collect usage data for at least 90 days for meaningful asset intelligence data.
3. Reallocate and retire licenses
Your Survey reports tell you where you have assets deployed that are underutilised or completely unused. Take measures to consolidate or reassign the underutilized assets, and decommission the ones that are not used at all. This will help you save money on maintenance and on software you now don’t have to buy.
4. Implement purchasing policies
Once you understand the true usage of hardware and software in your enterprise, establish new procurement guidelines and policies that more tightly control new purchases. New licenses should only be acquired after a report has been run showing full allocation of all owned licenses and license renewals should be renegotiated around what you actually use.
5. Track your savings
Track your cost reduction and savings over the months and years. Seeing where your savings are the greatest will help you fine-tune your organizational best practices.
