When you have 2 computers and 1 employee, managing your hardware and software assets and license compliance is easy. However, when you have 100 employees with 100 computers, that task is much more daunting. Computers may come and go, or just walk out the door. Similarly, unlicensed software can be innocently installed with forgotten intents to purchase it; or you may have an employee who unbeknownst to you, is actively installed pirated software.
Not only can this be expensive if hardware is disappearing, but the fines for unlicensed or pirated software can be unsurvivable. If your business is reported to the BSA (a consortium of software makers), you could be subject to fines of up to $100,000 per violation, or even have your business raided by federal agents.
SpotLink can help you track your hardware assets and stay in compliance with your software licensing. Using procedures built on SpotLink's years of experience and an assortment of software tools, SpotLink can determine the hardware your have, the software you are using, and the number of licenses you own. Having this information can help you manage your business better, and avoid potentially costly and distracting legal problems.
