Customers will enjoy a three year managed service, covering three key vendors of their choice, all managed by Certero for one low fixed price and facilitating a host of advanced SAM benefits including:

  • Cost savings
  • Compliance
  • Licensing optimization
  • Improved control
  • Reduced risk
  • Better productivity
  • Complete visibility
  • Enhanced decision making and planning

Aimed at organizations with a minimum of 1,000 devices, and delivered via Certero’s world-class processes underpinned by Certero’s industry-leading AssetStudio for Enterprise SAM technology, TotalSAM covers all the elements you’d expect to see in a comprehensive managed service, including:

  • Inventory Management: discovery and inventory of all hardware and software assets.
  • Entitlement On-boarding: Capture, review and consolidation of entitlement documentation.
  • ELPs & License Optimization: Reconciliation exercise and identification of optimization opportunities covering three key software vendors.
