Throw light on your licensing position

From people and processes through to data and assets, your software estate has lots of moving parts. To make it run like a well-oiled machine, you need visibility and clarity over each.

Livingstone helps you see the bigger picture so you can make the most of your investments. We’ll take stock of your licensing position and steer you toward a solution that’ll seal the best deal, reduce compliance risk and better prepare you for future vendor audits and negotiations.

Less risk, more reward

Compliance risk: two words nobody wants to hear. To make it so they never have to, you need a better understanding of your Effective License Position. Livingstone Hub supplements your data with manual declarations and entitlement information for specific major vendors, so you can get a clearer picture of where you might be overspending or under licensed.

Clarity on your risk picture

When your next audit rolls around, it’s best to be as prepared as possible so you don’t get caught out by unexpected costs or compliance issues. Livingstone’s Strategic Licensing Review (SLR) report pinpoints current risks and prioritizes their potential damage to your organization. We’ll arm you with a plan of action – and the confidence to sail through your next audit with no nasty surprises.

Ongoing support to keep your estate optimized

We’ll keep an eye on your compliance position to make sure you’re only ever paying for what you need, and only using what you’ve paid for. Regular intelligence reports through our SAM Managed Service will give you a better grasp of your cloud and software usage, so you’ll never be left in the dark. Your risks and costs stay down, and you stay in control of audits and negotiations.

We couldn't be happier with the amount of cost avoidance achieved. So much so, we'd advocate that other forces who are facing the same challenges as we were, also go through this optimization process, and have passed on Livingstone as a strong recommendation.
