Express Metrix Introduces Free, Full-Featured Software License Compliance Solution to Help More Organizations Achieve Audit Readiness

As Software Audits Intensify, Express Metrix Makes Enterprise-Class Software Available Free of Charge to Small and Midsize Organizations

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/24/14 -- In a software industry first, Express Metrix, a leading provider of IT and software asset management (SAM) solutions, today released a free, full-featured version of its enterprise-class software compliance solution to help more organizations overcome budget or resource restrictions and achieve audit-ready license status.

Available for use on up to 1000 machines, and offering a rich set of features allowing IT professionals to track and manage license compliance status, the free Inventory Edition of Express Software Manager provides enterprise-class functionality combined with exceptional flexibility and ease of use. The solution is designed to enable small to midsize organizations with limited budget to achieve software compliance. It is also ideal for larger companies contemplating a broader investment in SAM to test and prove the value of a best-of-breed SAM solution for their organization.

"This offering provides critical capabilities to every organization with a desire to minimize compliance risk," said Express Metrix CEO Kris Barker. "We wanted to do something to diminish the fear of software audits. No company, whatever their budget or size, should be held hostage by the complexity of software licensing if they are making a good-faith effort to be compliant."

Software license agreements and IT infrastructures continue to evolve rapidly, making license compliance increasingly difficult to evaluate and enforce internally. Organizations of all sizes are under increasing scrutiny by software vendors and, according to several industry reports, are being targeted for software audits with greater frequency than ever before. While free and inexpensive tools exist that claim to provide software inventory and license management functionality, most are not accurate, comprehensive, or detailed enough to reliably address license compliance risk on an ongoing basis, especially in cross-platform and virtual environments.

"Many companies lack both the budget and the executive support to invest in proper SAM programs. As a result, they waste time and resources trying to manage software compliance manually or with inferior technologies that simply don't get the job done," said Cynthia Farren, SAM expert and founder of Cynthia Farren Consulting. "Express Metrix has eliminated both the technology and the budget barriers to implementing effective SAM programs with its new free product offering."

Powerful License Compliance Capabilities
Express Metrix's complimentary offering aims to address challenges not met by inadequate "free trial" or other, less sophisticated SAM tools by providing perpetual use of the rich feature set found within Express Software Manager's Inventory Edition. Capabilities include license-centric IT asset reporting identifying exactly which software titles, versions and editions are installed across the organization; comparing discovered software with license counts; and revealing unlicensed software that represents a risk in the event of an audit.

In addition to its world-class software compliance reporting, Express Software Manager Inventory Edition provides access to the industry's most reputable software recognition library, ease of installation and use, support for virtualized environments and, if desired, integration with Microsoft's System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). Organizations considering a more comprehensive investment in SAM also receive 60 days of access to the full Express Software Manager suite, which includes software usage analysis and a powerful IT purchasing system.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
