About us

We are a group of SAM practitioners who've been on the front line in all aspects of the ITAM industry, from analyst, and auditor to development and sales, we have lived and breathed SAM most of our professional careers. We noticed that something was missing in the market when it came to customers pains, and our mission is to fix it.

Open

We believe that the SAM technology of the future is an open ecosystem, not a monolith. It’s the collective work of thousands of experts, turning their knowledge into algorithms and data structures. As such the Licenseware App ecosystem is open, built for collaboration and integration.

Modular

Licenseware is a modular approach for solving complex problems. Instead of building a one-stop solution, Licenseware apps cater to specific needs, capturing determined areas of expertise or business processes. Why build a generic tool, with mediocre capabilities? We’re building simple apps that do one thing but do it very well.

Integration

Data is abundant and available in a variety of systems, whether it’s existing SAM or ITAM tools like Snow and Flexera or other tools like Microsoft SCCM or Active Directory. Leveraging powerful APIs, Licenseware apps are designed to easily integrate with existing systems or tools. Anyone can build their own connector or they can commission Licenseware to build custom connectors for them.

Flexible

Proper license management requires a daily team effort in some companies; however, seasonal work is sufficient in others. Companies need to be able to decide what works for them and be pragmatic when they buy. Customers are able to choose based on their needs, between unlimited use subscription models (as short as one month) or Pay-As-You-Go where they are charged only for the devices they analyze.

Collaboration

People in the industry are becoming increasingly technical, and are always looking for ways to automate data processing and improve reporting. We would like to empower independent consultants or companies that are building their own scripts or tools, to amplify the value they generate by being able to create and publish their own apps on our platform. We want them to materialize their knowledge and expertise and share it with the world so that others can benefit from it, and even improve or expand the functionality.
