FrontRange Solutions has introduced the latest version of its License Manager.

Version 3.1 includes a new data collector that can take software audit information from the ubiquitous systems management tool, while the integration between License Manager and its software audit source, FrontRange Discovery, has been enhanced.

There is also a new bulk data import tool that can take licensing information from multiple vendors and contracts, and load this into the license repository automatically.

Matt Fisher, director of marketing at FrontRange Solutions, said: “With software budgets at best static, organisations need to focus on how they can better manage the software on their networks. License Manager is designed to help organisations drive out unnecessary costs by giving both IT and financial stakeholders the visibility and control needed to eliminate rogue purchasing, poor deployment practices and ineffective management of volume license agreements.”
