Expert Help for Tough Times - CompuCom SAM Consulting

We know with the economy being what it is that you will need to scrutinize every dollar spent and ensure maximum return. No one is better suited to help you do this in 2009 than the CompuCom Software Management team. When it comes to purchasing or reevaluating existing software licensing agreement timing is everything. You can save considerable money by signing a new licensing agreement or renegotiating an existing one for the right products at the right time. Our Software Consultants will help you do this.

Once our software consultant has analyzed both your technology deployment roadmap and the manufacturer’s product development schedule we will present you with a purchasing recommendation. We’ve worked on hundreds of volume purchase agreements and can often tell, at a glance, whether yours is structured to get you the maximum benefits, while enjoying the lowest licensing costs.

Finally, once the agreement is inked, CompuCom will help you manage your licenses. By tracking consumption, we can reduce the overhead necessary to calculate true-up payments. Plus, we’ll make sure you’re taking full advantage of any additional benefits you may have received as part of your agreement – this includes onsite support, Microsoft Software Assurance, discounted training and other benefits.
