Reflectent and PS'SOFT Bring Powerful Software License Management Solution to the Enterprise
Integrated reporting tool merges purchase, inventory, and usage data to manage software license compliance and reduce costs
WESTFORD, MA and BURLINGTON, MA - June 20, 2005 - Reflectent Software, Inc., provider of a widely deployed end-user systems management solution among the Fortune 1000, and PS'SOFT, a leading provider of IT Asset and Service Management solutions to medium to large businesses, today announced a partnership to integrate Reflectent's EdgeSight and PS'SOFT's License Compliance Module to manage software licenses and compliance issues across a distributed enterprise.
Reflectent's EdgeSight provides an unprecedented view into end-user systems allowing the IT organization to manage application and system performance from the user perspective including intelligent monitoring and analysis of application usage. PS'SOFT's License Compliance Module correlates licenses with users and workstations, mapping multiple versions, releases, and vendor titles into a single software instance to simplify software license management.
EdgeSight unobtrusively collects usage data for every application and integrates with PS'SOFT's intuitive and powerful business process management suite to combine usage data with purchasing and inventory records. The solution provides a comprehensive set of software license management capabilities -- enabling enterprise customers to ensure compliance and reduce costs by reclaiming and redistributing under-utilized software licenses.
"Our customers primarily use EdgeSight to manage application performance but have also found our lightweight agent technology and automatic collection of usage data for every application makes EdgeSight an ideal data source for full scale software license management," said Howie Markson, VP of Product Marketing at Reflectent. "By correlating this data with purchase and inventory data, our customers obtain a complete picture and partnering with an industry leader like PS'SOFT delivers an integrated solution that meets their needs."
"With today's announcement, PS'SOFT and Reflectent will help customers accelerate the transformation of their enterprise software and usage data information for software compliance," said Geno Cenci, US & Canada Sales Director for PS'SOFT, Inc. "By leveraging the EdgeSight usage data, this manageable information can then be used to identify the software in use within your company and match it to the software brands and quantities that you've licensed."
