In today’s digital world, software is indispensable to every organisation whether it is government, institutional, corporate or a small commercial enterprise. All organisations are learning they need to get the most out of their software. Software has to be managed and utilised well, like any other asset. Poor software management can deprive an organisation of the full value of the productivity and efficiency of its software and also lead to extensive cost blowouts.
Software licence procurement, combined with Software Asset Management is AcronymIT’s core focus. AcronymIT is a provider of software from many of the world’s leading software vendors and provides a browser based Software Asset Register (AboveBoard™), as its portal for centralised software management.
AcronymIT’s business is to assist organisations in both the public and commercial sectors, to maximise their investment in software. This is achieved through the provision of services including software procurement, centralised Software Asset Management, software vendor licence validation audits, licencing analysis, advice and recommendations. Software Asset Management as provided by AcronymIT optimises costs in a controlled, risk appropriate manner.
AcronymIT manages the life cycle of software assets. AcronymIT will work with the client to deliver software compliance and develop an action plan for asset efficiency and effectiveness. This will deliver software lifecycle compliance providing budgeting (capital and operational planning, cost analysis financial modelling) and targeted advice as required.
AboveBoard provides clients with a secure, single point of record for all their software procurement history, licence history, utilisation data, audit and management needs.
