Aspera wins over $1 million software deal with global food brand company
BOSTON, May 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Aspera, a leading provider of Software Asset Management (SAM) solutions and services and part of the USU Group, today announced that a global food brand company (the “customer”) has signed a $1.2M SaaS agreement to use Aspera SmartTrack SAM technology. Their key decision points for choosing Aspera were the successful integration of SmartTrack with the client’s complex IT environment and the value of partnering with an experienced services team.
The Customer’s senior management prioritized implementing a SAM solution to understand their software licensing and prepare ahead of vendor software audits. Their longer-term goal is to achieve an even higher return on investment by optimizing their software spend with key vendors such as Microsoft and Adobe. The Aspera platform will allow the customer to manage their data center and customer devices over a strategic three-year period.
“This project has been approved to move forward during a difficult and changing time,” said Mel Passarelli, President and CEO of Aspera. “It’s a strong recognition that SAM is a key strategy that contributes to a company’s financial health, and the Aspera team is the right person to support this partnership.
A successful technology aspect was the native integration of the SmartTrack platform with the client’s existing tools and processes, such as Office 365, Adobe Creative Cloud and Microsoft SCCM. The Aspera team has created value and trust at every step of the budget approval process, from justifying ROI to running a well-managed POC.
