New features in Aspera SmartTrack 4.2 cut time and costs by 50% for Software Asset Management
BOSTON, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To dramatically reduce costs and give customers deeper insights into their software licenses, Aspera announces the new release of its SmartTrack platform. Powerful features in Aspera SmartTrack 4.2 include the ability to create custom dashboard widgets, an easy view of the license history for every software product, and a single sign-on for Aspera's family of applications.
Aspera is an international leader in the strategic approach to Software Asset Management (SAM), and SmartTrack is the industry-standard solution for large and enterprise companies to identify up to 30% savings and reveal high-risk compliance gaps.
"The current version of SmartTrack gives customers insights into their license situation using large quantities of data in the quickest time possible, even without prior experience using a SAM tool. This information can then be shared easily with others," explains Stephan Pflanzer, Head of Development at Aspera. "We continue to guide our customers towards achieving their ideal SAM setup."
The important new features of SmartTrack 4.2 include:
- Ability to create custom widgets in the dashboard. SmartTrack users can create a dashboard that is role-specific, quickly view any urgent need for action, and establish the prerequisites for high quality data.
- Tell-Me-More feature to view products' license history. This one-of-a-kind feature shows the entire license history for every software product, including their complex license metrics, making it easy to understand the company's true license needs.
- Single sign-on for SAM Intelligence and License Control for SAP. Now users can sign into their other Aspera applications while working in SmartTrack. SAM Intelligence meets the increasing demand for effective reporting, and License Control for SAP answers all questions about SAP license management, particularly for "indirect access."
A commissioned Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Aspera confirmed that "With SmartTrack, the compliance team reduced the time spent on reconciliations by 50% due to real-time, accurate license data, saving approximately one-third of its overall time."
