Softline Solutions Northern Europe // License Management for Service Providers

Tailored License Management Services for Service Providers

The highly competitive market of the MSP's pressures all players to focus on being agile and lean. It is key to have license management under control. Only full control will result in accuracy and efficiency in the monthly consumption reporting and related processes. Streamlined invoicing processes around Microsoft SPLA for example, will not only minimize the effort in creating accurate reports, but will also minimise the risk of not billing to the full extent. 

Softline Solutions’ tailored License Management services for Service Providers, the name says it all: Services specifically set up to help the MSP’s to tackle their challenges. And furthermore, bring extra value to their business offer for the market: end customers can track the actual usage easily and actually do an optimisation of their software spend. Only pay what is actually used.

The tailored License Management services for Service Providers are built up around Softline Solutions’ philosophy of integrating organisation, process and technology and is modularly built to fit specific needs.
