Capita Secure Managed Services has been named as Snow UK System Integrator of the Year by Snow Software, the developer of software asset management and software licence optimisation solutions.
Capita Secure Managed Services offer a unique secure software licensing service that is ISO 19770 and ITIL compliant. This special award has been given by Snow's UK operation to Capita for its continual development and innovation in delivering a secure, hosted Licence Management service to local authorities, justice and security departments across the UK.
Together with Capita, Snow provides the ability for organisations to comply with their licensing obligations and optimise IT running costs, without the need to invest in internal infrastructure. Importantly, this service eliminates overspending on software by managing the complete life-cycle of hardware and software assets from purchase through to retirement. As a result, IT resources are managed in the most cost efficient way - an essential requirement for public sector organizations challenged by budgetary cuts.
Capita currently services a range of public sector contracts managing tens of thousands of assets for its clients and over the past two years has succeeded in trebling its hosted software asset management customer base.
"Effective licence management can potentially release millions of pounds worth of IT budget that public sector organisations spend year on year as a result of over purchasing software licences. Rather than simply focusing on achieving isolated cost savings, one of Capita's strengths is the ability to optimise an infrastructure end to end, from simplifying the prospect of licence management for all stakeholders, to providing a cost effective fully managed service," says Marlon Oliver, sales director at Snow Software's UK operation.
"A special thanks for this award goes to our dedicated software licensing team that go above and beyond to help our clients optimize their IT spend and achieve compliance. Effective software licence management can make a significant difference to our clients, giving them confidence in compliance and releasing budget that can improve other IT services. We look forward to working with Snow to develop future, secure services," says Mike Rossouw, software licensing team leader at Capita Secure Managed Services.
