What’s your best offense?
Audit defense!

Preparing ahead of an audit can easily lead your company to 7-figure savings. Software vendors are recovering millions of dollars in license revenue annually by targeting enterprises in audits, reviews and true-ups. That’s why SmartTrack helps position you for strong negotiations by knowing what software you use, and how it’s covered in your contracts.

Flexible permissions for roles & rights

Get real-life flexibility that makes your real life secure. SmartTrack has strong user permissions that are built for large companies and global data centers with many employees to manage.

Set each user’s permissions

Your SAM admin decides what a user sees in SmartTrack. Such as contracts but not software installations, or only Microsoft data instead of all vendor data.

Multiple profiles per user

Each user can have many SmartTrack profiles. You log in with a specific set of permissions for the dashboard display, menu access, and data access.

Data is GDPR compliant

SmartTrack masks the sensitive data of each user — such as name, email, login and import ID — to be as restrictive as you need.

Manage your contracts & financial planning

Say goodbye to inaccurate forecasts and missed contract clauses. SmartTrack makes budgeting easy, so you can integrate software cost charging into your IT services strategy. For contracts, its monitoring features let you easily handle IT volume agreements or multi-layered contract conditions.

  • Get fast, accurate answers for spend and budget: SmartTrack watches usage costs and purchasing costs, so you can forecast how contracts are used and what licenses should cost.
  • Get precise financial data for clear reporting: SmartTrack breaks down costs by views such as vendor, product, time, project, fiscal year, savings from reused licenses, and new purchase estimates.
  • Track contract maintenance and milestones: SmartTrack automatically monitors maintenance and support costs, and reports on milestones such as contract renewals and expirations.
