How Can Digital Solutions Help You?

Navigating the myriad of ever-changing options when determining your Microsoft license requirements can be – well, overwhelming. With our new service offerings specifically geared towards this endeavor, we reduce the complexity and time to determine your best path forward.

You benefit from a simplified approach and greater flexibility in how your software licenses are purchased. In a manner that’s easy to understand, that directly improves licensing asset management, and has predictable costs.

Speridian solves your immediate needs and reduces the time to achieve your desired licensing goals.

The Speridian Advantage

  • Through our program, we evaluate your current Microsoft subscription licensing portfolio to determine exactly what adjustments will ensure you’ve selected the “best fit” solution and are not overpaying for Microsoft licensing in 2022.
  • Of those options, we help determine the “best fit” choice for now and your anticipated near future.

When determining your optimum Microsoft 365 License requirements, the wealth of information and knowledge available can be confusing – even overwhelming. The 3 most common challenges include:

    1. Erring on the side of caution resulting in the purchase of too many licenses,
    2. Purchasing licenses that contain applications that don’t align with your current business and employee usage requirements, and
    3. Paying for inactive licenses rather than assigning them to new users, thus inflating your baseline licensing needs.

Speridian’s Microsoft Licensing Optimization Experts have developed a proven methodology, including Automated Analytical Tools, designed to ensure you are able to keep your Microsoft Subscriptions & Licensing under control.
