Software Asset Management
Why manage your software assets with FIAC?
Businesses are spending more than 300 billion US dollars a year on enterprise software, according to a Gartner study published in 2013. Procurement of software contracts and licences are often capitalised, making software an important enterprise asset that requires effective management and optimal utilisation.
At FIAC, we have distilled over 20 years of Intellectual Property and licensing expertise to provide better visibility, control and utilisation of software assets for our clients. From risk assessment and planning, data analytics and technology solutions to operational support, we have lined up our Software Asset Management and Optimisation Service to assist clients at different levels of SAM maturity, achieving results cost effectively.

Our current focus:
|Area of focus||Scenario||Read more|
|Audit defence||Just received the audit notification letter from your beloved software vendor or already being presented with a worrying quote on ‘settlement’? We can help you minimise the damage and take advantage of the situation.|
|Internal audits||Are your tricky enterprise agreements or complex data structure keeping you from total confidence in licence compliance? Our internal audit service uses the exact same audit methodologies as each of your vendors will – you can then fix your blind spots before it turns into a big settlement bill.|
|A tool-free SAM||We do not sell tools for SAM, we deliver SAM. Our job is to take you across the compliance line on time, not to leave you with a tool that you operate half-heartedly after we leave. We believe that your time is better used in acting on the trustworthy data and reports prepared by our trained hands, then to test, implement, integrate and maintain another piece of software.|
|Audit readiness assessment||Not comfortable with your licence compliance status and worrying about exposure under a vendor licensing audit? Using our expertise distilled from 20 years of licensing audit experience, we will look for blind spots in your data, tooling and processes and provide actionable advice. All this on 1 day, free of charge. No-brainer?||Book an appointment now|
