Software vendors are increasingly making use of the audit clause in their contracts to find any incompliancy. The actual purpose of these audits is to sell additional licenses. In 99% of all compliancy claims Thornstein Groep is capable to significantly reduce and in some cases even completely wipe out the claim.
Due to many unilateral changes in licensing terms, metrics and the introduction of new product names and lines by the supplier, it is difficult or nearly impossible for customers to understand whether there really is a non-compliance.
Auditors will not search for an optimal license distribution for the user of the software, but will rather search for additional revenues for the supplier and additional commission for the sales. Thornstein Groep brings its clients clarity in the maze of rules and exceptions in the license terms. The client keeps the "driving seat" in all cases, Thornstein Groep will provide comprehensive support to make the right decisions with the aim of minimizing the claim.
The starting point for all our (future) customers should be an optimized assignment of license rights, whereby a continuous view on compliance arises. In case additional licenses are really required we negotiate you the best terms and conditions.
The services provided by Thornstein Groep do not need any upfront investment. Thornstein Groep’s remuneration depends entirely on the results achieved. No-cure, no-pay.
