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.
Features of Software License Management in ServiceOps
Software license management is a core element of IT asset management. It allows businesses to carry out all the tasks with just a few clicks and helps prevent software licensing difficulties businesses face. Motadata ServiceOps helps organizations to be up to date with all the available software licenses with its features as listed below:
Import Software License
Adding license information manually for each scanned software is tedious. Importing software licenses with ServiceOps is much easier. It is an easy-to-use Import Software License option, where you can import software license information from the current database or other applications.
Add Software License
With the Software License Management tool, you can add many software licenses. The License Key is an important identifier to add or edit software licenses. So, the license key must be unique to prevent overwriting the remaining ones.
Software License Reporting
The reporting facility provides details about the purchased licenses to manage and maintain software licenses and the license status.
The report provides the list of software whose licenses must be renewed soon and the latest updated date, and it also allows teams to specify the time. The system also allows organizations to review software licenses that have already expired by selecting suitable options.
By choosing the proper parameters, you can also view the software licenses that have already expired. You can choose whether to renew the licenses based on the software metering and the usage statistics.
License Allocation and Installation
Licenses can be managed for individual licenses, devices, and users through the license properties if they are allocated appropriately. For example, you can create a license allocation rule for an asset if you want to automatically assign one or more user licenses when they are added to a particular group. It also carries information about the license installation.
Apart from all the above features, software license management also allows one to attach License files, Invoices, and Purchase orders. There is also the possibility of adding notes for technicians to find any special notes for future use.
