Providing professional-level protection of intellectual property
Often, businesses do not pay enough attention to licensing agreements and the need to comply with the terms and conditions of such agreements, particularly for the use of software. Our team has significant experience in assessments of intellectual property usage. We also have vast experience in checking compliance with the terms and conditions of licensing agreements.
Many software vendors try to control the use of their intellectual property and choose our specialists to conduct professional independent verifications, recover lost profits and optimise sales. Our team carefully checks the IT infrastructure of our clients, using a proven methodology, and provides a detailed report on the use of licensed products.
Software Asset Management (SAM) is an advanced methodology that combines high-performance technologies with software asset management procedures. Our team will help implement the SAM methodology and explain how to use it. The use of this solution will protect your investments in IT projects and will assess the software assets that the company owns, as well as the efficiency of their usage.
Audits of settlements under licensing agreements often show both weaknesses in the licensee’s controls and non-compliance with the licensor’s policies. Our team will help check whether the settlements meet the terms and conditions of relevant licensing agreements and whether there is compliance with the licensor’s policies.
