Eliminate license hogging, improve productivity.
Free up idle and unused licenses. Empower users with licenses, whenever they need them.
Optimize license usage and reduce employee downtime.
The OpenLM License Harvesting feature releases idle licenses back to their respective license pools, allowing more of your users to utilize the same number of licenses. This way you can free up licenses that are currently being held by applications or users who are not actively using them.

Identify patterns with machine learning
ML (Machine learning) based close policies that further reduce the downtime of your expensive assets. The OpenLM Agent identifies the end-user’s license usage pattern and closes the application based on the policies you define.
Determine application inactivity
OpenLM Agent tracks the software activity and will only harvest the license when there is no user activity or any background processing done by the application.
With more available licenses, you can prevent engineers from being denied checking out licenses, which prevents work progress and leads to wasted resources.
Optimize license-to-user ratio
A better understanding of end users’ license usage will give you the right data to right-size the number of network licenses. The ideal license-to-user ratio is 4:1, but this can rise to 6:1 or more
Eliminate license hogging
Prevent end-users from checking out an expensive license when they come to the office and leaving it open as long as they can to avoid being denied.
Significantly save on costs
License optimization will lead to fewer licenses being required because once users know licenses will be available, they will not hold on to licenses in fear of getting a denial later. Therefore, more licenses will be available, and, as a result, the organization will have to purchase fewer licenses and the engineers won’t lose time, focusing instead on getting the job done.
