Technology group Voith wins 3rd place at the renowned 2017 SAMS Awards

Fully automatic compliance and permanent comparison between the IT Online Store and Aspera SmartTrack

Aachen/Heidenheim, Germany, 7 March 2017 – Aspera’s client Voith – a globally active technology group – was awarded 3rd place at the 2017 SAMS Awards for the group-wide introduction of a new software metering process. Voith won votes for its “come together SmartTrack & Voith IT Online Store” project in the “Tool / Software” category.

The winners were announced last night in Berlin for the first time via a live voting process. Voith convinced over 200 SAM specialists with their implementation of a software asset management (SAM) solution in a complex technical environment in only four months.

“We automated the process of releasing unused licenses and making them available via the Voith IT Online Store – while ensuring compliance and adherence to license regulations at all times,” explained Regina Karing, Corporate License Management, who is responsible for the project implementation.

“Voith’s project shows a solution that can be easily expanded,” said Olaf Diehl, Managing Director at Aspera. “We congratulate our client Voith, which has been using our platform to manage licenses since 2012. As we continue to develop SmartTrack, we will focus on ensuring that clients can optimize their processes simply and flexibly – also with regard to access to the Cloud.”
