“Slash Licensing Costs, and Gain
Transparency Over Granular Reporting”
A clearly systemic problem.
“The reports allow us to see what level of software we actually need. This has allowed us to downscale premier packages that we rarely used and has helped and saved us a lot.”
The catalyst for change
Outside of working hours, Urschel permitted engineers and users to use software for their own home/personal projects — an atypical practice, indeed. However, when they discovered that these users were themselves license squatting, this policy was clearly detrimental:
“Unavailable licenses resulted in a lot of downtime. What else are engineers going to do if they can’t get into the software to do their work?”
It was that point that we needed to change.
Both Solution and Choice Were Simple
How did you decide what solution to purchase?
“I called my IT department and I said we need something. I told them it needs to be relatively cheap, easy to use, etc. They came to me with OpenLM.”
How was the implementation and on-boarding?
“They installed it, setup the filter, told me where I need to go to see what I needed. I then figured it, and any other additional information that I needed, out. It’s very intuitive and easy to use.”
Did you encounter any problems?
“Only with user error. When we changed our server, the IT department didn’t link the software, so we engaged with OpenLM’s support. In the end, it turned out that the error message we were getting was because of a server fault at our end.”
