Paris, June 11, 2019. Aspera, the leading provider of solutions and services for Software Asset Management (SAM), announced today the signing of a 3 year contract for delivery managed services to an enterprise that figures among the top 5 pharmaceutical companies in the world. USU SAS, a French subsidiary of the USU Group, sells Software Asset Management solutions in France under the name Aspera.
In order to manage its software deployments, ensure license compliance, and get a real-time automated overview of its software licenses, the pharmaceutical giant decided in 2016 to launch a Software Asset Management project. The company chose the Aspera SmartTrack tool, hosted on the vendor's SaaS platforms.
Very satisfied with the tool, the company invited Aspera, along with the other main players in Software Asset Management, to participate in a tender for managed services. These services collect all license deployment data and inventory them to ensure software compliance. It is also an opportunity for the pharmaceutical group to optimize its licensing environment and software costs.
"Beyond the performance of the SmartTrack tool, Aspera is proud to strengthen its collaboration with a world-class group through end-to-end services,” says Eléonore Varet, Vice-President of Aspera France, in charge of operations and services.
Initially, these services will focus on four main vendors with a scope that is expected to expand in the coming months.
At Aspera, we simplify the complexity of your software licenses. For nearly two decades, we have helped hundreds of enterprises and over 50 Fortune 500s to assess cost and risk within their IT environments. Our solutions for Software Asset Management track all the big vendors, such as IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP to cover every environment from servers and desktops to cloud and mobile. With the largest in-house consultant and service team in the industry, we provide the best strategy for data discovery, easy system integration, and a cost-effective way to purchase, use and optimize licenses.
