Organizations purchase software for a wide variety of business needs, and it can be easy to lose track of which applications are deployed and how much users are actually taking advantage of them.
There are a few key steps organizations should follow to make sure they are getting the largest return possible on their software investments. First, they should conduct inventories to know which licenses they own, the license terms and how each piece of software is being used.
Second, organizations need to take steps to maximize adoption of software by their workforce. A key part of that is educating and training users on how to properly use the software. Users who know how to get the most out of software maximize its efficiency.
Last, organizations need to avoid wasting money on software that isn’t being used, and carefully manage software assets to maximize their value.
