Managing software assets in large enterprises can be difficult.
Software licencing arrangements can be increasingly complex. When licensing involves multi-user software with enterprise, transaction, processor, concurrent user or named user constraints, the management headaches mount.
On top of this is the increasing number of software audits and enforcement actions launched by software vendors.
We see vendors conducting software audits, uncovering violations of the licencing terms. Then demanding penalties that are orders-of-magnitude greater that the vendor’s actual loss.
The shakedown proceeds with a decreased settlement offer, if paid immediately. However, these reduced fees are still considerably higher than a negotiated agreement might achieve.
We have the knowledge and experience to protect your legal rights throughout the software license audit and dispute process.
Most importantly, working with a law firm, the audit results are protected by legal professional privilege if the matter ultimately proceeds to litigation.
We have achieved excellent outcomes for clients in negotiations with major software suppliers while maintaining relationships and ensuring budgets and timelines are met.
