Maximize your Office 365 investment effortlessly
Office 365 contains the apps you use every day. LicenseControl empowers you to get all you can from Office 365, now and in the future.
Based in the Aspera Cloud Platform, LicenseControl for Office 365 keeps your spending low by finding the most cost-effective subscription options. It analyzes accounts, subscriptions, and apps used to automatically suggest the best enterprise plans and services for each user. That means your important decisions are based on solid data without the guesswork.
Knowledge is negotiation power
Microsoft already knows what you use. Shouldn’t you, too?
Negotiating better contracts with Microsoft means knowing what you have, what you need, and what your options are.
LicenseControl gives you all the information you need to get better, more cost-effective contracts. Its intuitive usage and optimization reports allow you to see the subscription options that best suit your needs. Effortlessly optimize your subscriptions in preparation for your contract renewals, and go in ready to negotiate even more savings.
Get the right app combinations
LicenseControl for Office 365 automatically suggests the best subscription plans and apps for each user by looking at real usage and knowing all the entitlement combinations.
For instance, if an E5 plan contains too many entitlements for a user, but that user still needs Power BI Pro, LicenseControl will recommend lowering to an E3 plan with a separate Power BI pro subscription. This can result in significant savings. If those entitlements, such as Service BI, aren’t used, that’s a lot of wasted budget.
LicenseControl optimizes the subscription so that the user still has access to the Office 365 apps they need but at a lower price. Paying only for the entitlements you need will free up budget for other revenue-driving opportunities and demonstrate the business value of Office 365 license management.
Stop over-provisioning and make your investment work for you
LicenseControl for Office 365 gives you a complete overview of your available subscriptions. As new users join your company—or leave it—and existing users’ needs change, there’s a lot of opportunity for optimization. Instead of buying new subscriptions, LicenseControl shows you deactivated and unallocated subscriptions that you can utilize first.
LicenseControl automatically alerts you to available licenses, easily reducing your costs for an essential business resource.
