French pharma group signs with Aspera for SAM managed services

Paris, June 11, 2019. Aspera, the leading provider of solutions and services for Software Asset Management (SAM), announced today the signing of a 3 year contract for delivery managed services to a enterprise that figures among the top 5 pharmaceutical companies in the world.

In order to manage its software deployments, ensure license compliance, and get a real-time automated overview of its software licenses, the pharmaceutical giant decided in 2016 to launch a Software Asset Management project. The company chose the Aspera SmartTrack tool, hosted on the vendor's SaaS platforms.

Very satisfied with the tool, the company invited Aspera, along with the other main players in Software Asset Management, to participate in a tender for managed services. These services collect all license deployment data and inventory them to ensure software compliance. It is also an opportunity for the pharmaceutical group to optimize its licensing environment and software costs.

"Beyond the performance of the SmartTrack tool, Aspera is proud to strengthen its collaboration with a world-class group through end-to-end services,” says Eléonore Varet, Vice-President of Aspera France, in charge of operations and services.

Initially, these services will focus on four main vendors with a scope that is expected to expand in the coming months.
