Aspera announces new SmartTrack 4 for Software License Management

Redesigned interface and efficient workflow make strategic SAM faster and easier

Boston, MA — July 14, 2015 - Aspera Technologies, Inc. announces the availability of SmartTrack 4, the industry-leading platform for server-based license management and License Management as a Service (LaaS). Aspera SmartTrack is already established as the SAM technology of choice for large enterprises. The new SmartTrack 4 delivers a totally redesigned, user-friendly interface for faster, simpler license management.

Christof Beaupoil, Co-Founder of Aspera Technologies, says, "SmartTrack has always been the most powerful license management tool on the market. And now it’s also pretty to look at! As of version 4 our user interface is more intuitive, attractive, and streamlined than ever."

SmartTrack 4 provides the data quality and license optimization of previous versions, while adding user-friendly features such as intelligent menus, a customizable dashboard, Search field, and time-saving Favorites. With a completely new interface based on customer feedback and designed by UI experts, SmartTrack 4 creates increased efficiency, reduced complexity and strategic savings for large enterprises.

Mathias Knops, Director of Product Management, explains, “Much of SmartTrack 4 is a thoughtful redesign of its usability. We have evolved our platform from a rather technical database front-end into a full web application that behaves and feels as you expect. I’m also very pleased about a new feature—a customizable dashboard on the Start page that lets you pull SmartTrack details to the surface and work faster in your daily tasks.”

New and Improved Features of SmartTrack 4

SmartTrack 4 streamlines a company’s license management while giving total control over the SAM process. Whether the user is experienced or new to the technology, it’s easy to understand and tackle daily SAM tasks with professional features that include:

  • Clean, user-friendly interface. The new design is intuitive to use, with frequently used features in easy-to-access menus, and a Favorites option to bookmark for a faster workflow.
  • Quick access to tables. The main menu shows the most frequently used tables, like Contracts and Licenses, while other tables can get marked as Favorites for fast, customized access.
  • Forms are easy to create. It’s simple to manage and complete each form, with required and important fields shown first, and advanced fields available in expandable sections.
  • NEW custom dashboard. Immediately see the info and KPIs you want by choosing from widgets like easy-access reports and auto-filters, or create your own widgets to customize your KPIs.
  • 100% web based. SmartTrack is an entirely online platform that operates through your local browser, with no installation on the user side, while still providing complete security and access control.
