Software Audits On The Rise

Monday, June 17, 2013
As reported in a recent Grand Rapids Business Journal article, the number of software audits targeting local businesses have been increasing, forcing businesses to react, sometimes very quickly, in order to avoid costly licensing and penalty fees. At the same time, software vendors continue to change their existing licensing rules and requirements while introducing new licensing models, such as cloud-hosted and subscription-based licensing services. And this is not only a local issue, the trend continues throughout many parts of the country where we support customers.

The good news is we can help you understand what licensing you have and help you avoid the audits. With the IT Resource Remote Monitoring and Reporting (RMR) program, your business will always have up-to-date and detailed information on exactly what software applications are installed on every device on your network at any time. In fact, this solution can also insure compliance by automatically uninstalling non-compliant software should you require that feature.

If you are a current IT Resource RMR customer, we recommend you review your current software licensing status at this time. To receive your report, simply send an e-mail to help@itrw.net and request a ‘Software Audit Report’ which will be provided to you at no cost. If you are not currently enrolled in our RMR program and would like to learn more about what it offers, please contact our Sales Account Manager Molly Reid at (616) 837-6930 or mollyr@itrw.net.
