Maximise your investment in Microsoft software with the Phoenix Software Optimisation Service (SOS).

By bringing together the expertise of our Software Asset Management, Microsoft and Managed Service teams, we have created a world-class service to help you address your tactical and strategic software challenges.

Beyond Compliance

As your IT infrastructure grows, a lack of centralised procurement, poor standardisation and little knowledge of software renewal dates can make it hard to manage your software and accurately predict your annual software spend.

Couple this with the pressure your IT department is under to demonstrate compliance while rapidly reducing costs and improving efficiency, clearly there has never been a greater need to optimise the way your software is procured and managed.

By utilising Phoenix SOS, we can help you develop a vision of your current and future software licensing requirements and maximise the value of your software estate – all while saving money.

Our specialised, truly objective and confidential service will give you the insight you need to help focus on buying the right licences, at the right time, for the right price.
