Software license management controls all the organization’s software licenses from a single console. Using license management software can also alert the team about license expiration dates, overuse, and underuse.

The usage and distribution of software are governed by a legal agreement called a software license that software publishers or distributors create. Terms and conditions, limitations, restrictions, and disclaimers are typically included in this document.

Software license tracking, documentation, and control are all aspects of a software license management system, which is a component of software asset management.

Software license management software can help businesses observe all license agreements.
