SoftwareONE announces it has officially delivered over 1,000 Software Asset Management (SAM) engagements year-to-date, and forecasts a total of 1,500 by the end of 2013. SoftwareONE has become the global leader in SAM by delivering more engagements globally than any other SAM service provider.

"In just over 9 months, we have conducted over 1,000 SAM engagements," stated Oliver Berchtold, SoftwareONE’s Global SAM Director. "With SAM specialists located in 80 countries worldwide, we make it easy to coordinate SAM engagements globally for our customers. We are able to relate better with customers because we speak the language and are familiar with local business climates."

By offering a variety of SAM services which range anywhere from a baseline assessment of an organization’s licensing situation to a fully managed, long-term engagement with SAM Elite, the 150+ global SAM professionals have themselves been a vital asset to SoftwareONE’s 40% year-over-year growth since 2006.

Conducting so many SAM engagements has given SoftwareONE a global perspective of the wide range of challenges and opportunities customers face when optimizing their software portfolio. SoftwareONE has used this experience to continually evolve its SAM practice to meet the needs of its clients by offering service levels which reflects the variety of asset management seen with our clients.

"In order to meet with customer challenges, SoftwareONE’s SAM services accommodates to differing degrees of SAM maturity by offering service levels specifically tailored towards their unique situation," illustrated Oliver. "In an industry where technology is always evolving and the customer need is constantly growing, I believe that a customer-focused SAM practice should learn from each and every engagement, and that is exactly what we have done since we first introduced our SAM services."

The SoftwareONE SAM team provides organizations with the capabilities to maximize investments and understand the complexities involved with software licensing. Identifying and assessing risks while working towards mitigation strategies to strengthen an organization’s overall effectiveness is the backbone of the SoftwareONE SAM program.
