Can it integrate with other IT systems?

Yes. SAM works well with a variety of existing systems, such as ITAMs, ITSMs and CMDBs. Once integrated, you'll have a greater view of your software assets, be able to increase data accuracy and perfect your workflows.

Does SAM handle procurement and vendor activity?

Yes – and it helps you streamline those workflows too. You can manage licenses and contracts, quickly track orders – plus work out the ROI of your relationships with each vendor.

Can it help with software costs?

Yes. It helpfully highlights any licenses you aren't using – allowing you to reassign them or downgrade the amount you're paying for. It also assesses your usage patterns, helping your team to plan and use your software more efficiently.

Does it come with reporting capabilities?
