Take the guesswork out of expense planning
Your business is dependent on software. And the cost of software licenses is rising. SmartTrack enables your Finance team to anticipate their contract true-up expenses and software costs.
SmartTrack’s centralized License Management platform brings transparency to your enterprise’s software assets, usage, licenses, and contracts. It also helps you clearly account for hardware assets and the users themselves. This information is mapped out to organizational and accounting structures, which in turn record the license ownership, leases, and software usage.
Ultimately SmartTrack gives fast access to helpful budgeting processes like:
- Accurate, automated reports for contract expenses and license balances
- IT cost allocation that can focus chargebacks on the actual consumption of IT services
- Efficiency gains due to clearly structured information for Enterprise contract renewals and true-ups
- Data that creates precise software budgets, and advises proactive but compliant steps if expenses are too high
- A fair distribution across the organization of software costs and resources used for IT services
