Top 5 ways to save with LicenseControl
Information is key. With a complete overview of your Salesforce estate, you can dramatically improve your Salesforce cost-benefit ratio. Get more for less. Here’s how LicenseControl does it:
- Reduce your license demand. Make sure that people who are licensed for Salesforce are actually using it. Deactivate unused accounts, analyze inactivity hotspots, and monitor unexpected consumption and over-limit charges.
- Reduce your purchases. Get the full view of your license inventory to avoid unnecessary purchasing and keep costs down, such as automatically reusing licenses and seeing where to transfer subscriptions.
- Monitor account costs. View all Salesforce Orgs together – instead of just one Org at a time – to see the full picture of your company's costs for account-based licenses and total consumption across Orgs.
- NEW! Monitor storage costs. LicenseControl shows how close you are to the storage allowed by your contract, so you can avoid increased costs from high charges when your data or files go over the limits.
- NEW! Protect user data. LicenseControl isolates the customer’s cloud data and stores it by geographical region, which can help maintain compliance with local data protection laws.
SaaS cost is like an elevator that can only go up. With this new version of LicenseControl for Salesforce, Aspera found the switch to bring the elevator, in other words the cloud cost, down again. Dormant user accounts are an issue across industries. Eliminating them automatically will create continuous savings.

New automatic features for ease & efficiency
LicenseControl can now automatically deactivate unused or rarely used Salesforce accounts. With Auto License Harvesting, just set the time frame for detecting inactivity, and evaluate the savings that deactivating an account will bring. Its helpful features include:
- Automatic deactivation. Set an inactivity threshold, such as 6 weeks, after which accounts are automatically deactivated.
- Detailed view of inactivity. Set the threshold between 5 and 360 days—much more than Saleforce’s 90 day view—which lets you align account inactivity with business reality.
- Automated emails. Notify the user of their license status with emails that are fully customizable per Org, including account deactivations and alert emails.
- Activity log. Get a full overview of LicenseControl’s account activity per Org, including account deactivations and alert emails.
- Extra data privacy. Add security to the customer data in Salesforce by deactivating non-authorized accounts and avoid breaches of local data protection laws such as the GDPR.

Cure your 8-digit Veeva license overspending
If you’re a big pharmaceutical company, you use Veeva CRM to manage your relationships with pharma customers.
The good news is that Veeva is built on the Salesforce infrastructure. Its user-based licensing model is tiered depending on your geographical region, which works for your company's decentralized global structure. The bad news is that your budget is silently bleeding. Without a clear overview of usage and the ability to monitor file and data storage, you are buying more Veeva licenses than you need.
With LicenseControl, you spend only what you need to. Monitor your employees’ usage, track inactive users, and automatically re-harvest unused or underutilized licenses. You will reduce up to 30% of your Veeva costs. That’s a cure you can live with. Stop the bleeding, and get on the path to healthy, long-lasting LicenseControl.
