Snow Software

Whether it's through lack of control, lack of understanding or lack of compliance, Snow believe most organisations today end up paying too high a price for their software.
To address this, Snow provides Software Asset Management (SAM) solutions designed to ensure that the $326 billion spent every year on enterprise software is money well spent – ensuring organisations have the appropriate licenses for the software they use – not too many, not too few.

More than 6,000 organisations worldwide rely on Snow to optimise licensing across in excess of 11 million devices, from mobile to desktop, datacenter to the cloud.

Buckinghamshire County Council sees 1000% ROI from Managed SAM
“We were not getting the detail we needed in terms of applications installed from SCCM and overall, reporting and visibility were tricky to achieve.”
Richard Randall, ICT Technical Officer for Service Transformation at Buckinghamshire County Council.

Snow proved itself an easy to use solution providing accurate, granular data to support BCC’s migration to Windows 7 and future SAM objectives.  

We welcome you to our stand at the SOCITM Annual conference where you can meet the Snow team and discuss your requirements.
