SAM Portal is the first comprehensive end-to-end solution for managing software assets. Powered by the world-leading software licence management system, Licence Dashboard™, this easy-to-use interface enables organisations to take full control of the Software Asset Management (SAM) lifecycle.
With software taking up an ever-increasing share of an organisation's IT budget, it has become even more important to manage, control and protect your software assets. Having greater control of the software lifecycle process and understanding your licence position can definitely help your organisation avoid unnecessary expenditure and illegal exposure.
With its built-in workflow and easy to use Web-enabled interface, organisations can quickly implement an effective Software Asset Management programme without having to re-engineer existing systems or business processes.

The recent changes to the NHS software licensing agreements with Microsoft left the Leeds Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust responsible for ensuring their Microsoft software was correctly licensed. Recognising the legal responsibility of ensuring software licensing compliance, (along with the commercial implications of non-compliance), The Trust recruited Phoenix Software (Microsoft's longest-established Gold Partner and Software Asset Management Partner) to assist in reviewing its software licensing agreements, evaluating its procurement techniques and implementing an on-going Software Asset Management (SAM) strategy. After the successful implementation of a Proof of Concept Workshop the Trust decided to utilise Licence Dashboard.
Licence Dashboard Enterprise Edition fulfilled The Trust’s requirements enabling them to effectively and automatically control the entire lifecycle of their software assets from purchase, to upgrade and beyond.
