$30,000 saving in annual licensing costs
ROI seen in less than 2 months
Healthcare is undergoing rapid transformation in this digital age; patients are no longer numbers, they are customers, and a customer-centric and holistic approach to treating them is becoming the norm. Array’s designs are at the forefront of this change. In addition to providing an encouraging environment for treatment, their work equally recognizes the challenges of the healthcare institutions to manage their assets efficiently; Array applies Lean principles in their design approach, both eliminating waste and gearing up the built environment to be flexible and responsive to change. Array is based in the United States, with eight regional offices, with their headquarters located in Pennsylvania.
Applying Lean Principles to Software Assets
“It’s a good product and I hope it will be around for a long time.”
He had optimized his asset management by installing one centralized license server and purchasing 66 concurrent licenses which could be utilized by 90 users, but felt sure that the situation could be improved. Daniel was aware of the fact that users would book out a license and leave their workstations open overnight without closing the application. Other users would simultaneously book out AutoCAD and Revit or two different versions of the same product.
Visibility and transparency are key to Lean practices, and the license manager provided by Autodesk was not providing Daniel with the insights he needed. He investigated the license manager market and decided on OpenLM, based both on its keen pricing and its ability to help manage Autodesk products.
Initial investigation and implementation
Array has upgraded since the original purchase to OpenLM version 4.1. They also purchased OpenLM Active Agent for 90 machines. The Active Agent extension facilitates and automates the harvesting of idle licenses in several ways, such as saving the work done in the session, closing the license and returning it to the pool.
