Engineering License Reporting Integration

 

OpenLM lets you add engineering license reporting capabilities to your software product. See below to understand how and why.

 

Engineering License Inventory and Usage Monitoring

If you are a software company with helpdesk, SAM or other service-oriented products, you probably already know how important it is to customers that use engineering software to know their engineering software inventory and usage patterns. Their need for that information is easy to understand. When a license costs many thousands of dollars and not infrequently 5-figure costs per seat, unused licenses are a liability and knowing about them can save the organization large sums of money. On the other hand, a shortage of licenses can carry even greater costs if engineers are stuck waiting for a concurrent license to become available. In short, managing engineering licenses properly translates to big money for user organizations.

Obtaining this information requires a deep understanding of license manager technology that SAM and helpdesk software lacks. This however is the core business of OpenLM and by integrating OpenLM you can add engineering license reporting capabilities to your software product and bring significant ROI to your customers.

 

Benefits to the IT Vendor

By providing reports on engineering license inventory and usage, you get:

  1. Powerful added functionality in your core product that has clear ROI for your customer
  2. A source of additional revenue
  3. Up-sale potential from your existing customers
  4. A competitive advantage over other solutions that do not have an engineering license reporting capability
  5. A set of ready-build components that quickly integrate into your products with minimal effort

 

Benefits to Your Customer

  1. They get the option of receiving critical reporting on engineering licenses from their existing SAM or helpdesk software
  2. They get to know about unused licenses
  3. They can reduce denials of service for engineering applications due to unavailable licenses
  4. They can optimize their license inventory and get their user-to-license ratios right
  5. They get a fully documented pattern of usage to justify purchasing additional licenses when necessary
  6. Above all they reduce engineering software license spend AND reduce unnecessary project delays
