Microsoft have released a new Software Asset Management case study for the Bowmer and Kirkland Group, a 1,600 employee construction and development company based in Belper, UK.
The group has started to benefit from a clearer view of their licensing position, slicker processes and reduced risks from software assets. Microsoft validated their licensing position as true, which is always a good line in the sand to grow from.
Ultimately, this will effect their bottom line by allowing the group to make more efficient licensing choices.
