A decade of SAM expertise combined with powerful catalogue-centric licence management technology
Released: 6th November 2013
Publisher: IT Asset Management Solutions

IT Asset Management Solutions (ITAMS), one of the UK's longest established, vendor independent, IT and software asset management, consulting, technology and managed services providers today announced that it has signed the UK distribution rights to Aspera SmartTrack, a SKU catalogue-centric licence management technology that already underpins its ELM 360 (Enterprise Licence Management 360) managed service.

The exclusive distributor status will elevate ITAMS as the key player in the UK to offer world-class licence management technology combined with over a decade of IT and software asset management expertise which forms the core of its modular ELM 360 service offering.

“ITAMS’ exclusive distributor agreement with Aspera has reached a significant milestone in our eight year partnership,” comments Stephane Jansem, Managing Partner of ITAMS. “It is a testament to Aspera’s Strategic Licence Management solution and endorsement of the SmartTrack technology, which we feel to be the best of breed for enterprise licence management, and a perfect match to our unique ELM 360 service.”

Bernhard Boehler, co-founder and CEO of Aspera adds, “This agreement cements an already well-established relationship with ITAMS and offers large enterprises with increasingly complex organisational and IT structures, the most advanced solution yet to effectively defend against software audits and manage difficult licensing challenges.”

ELM 360 has been implemented in a number of UK headquartered global organisations; examples include many 50,000+ seat enterprises, including a large central government department and major banking and finance firms. ITAMS will continue to further develop a network of collaborative partners to promote the complete ELM 360 service or solely the SmartTrack technology to those organisations looking to implement a highly specialised licence management platform.
