Atech have been managing and optimising Microsoft licensing for over ten years. We work with our clients to ensure they are subscribed to the most effective plans for their needs and regularly review their users and activity to ensure they are optimising their investment.
We know that Microsoft licensing is often amongst the most expensive items in an IT budget and our certified professional services team will leverage our comprehensive understanding of Microsoft licensing to ensure your subscription aligns with your business needs and objectives.
During this assessment, our tools will identify opportunities for improvement and optimisation regarding the lifecycle of your Microsoft licensing estate as well as considering additional vendors you may have in place that are potentially duplicating outputs such as business critical Security tools. The report and recommendations of this engagement will deliver three main areas for you to determine your next steps.
“The licensing assessment, delivered by Atech, provided us with a detailed view of our existing investment and gave us the opportunity to understand how we can maximise the potential of the extensive Microsoft productivity suite. Our new hybrid workplace agenda exposed our existing security posture, and we needed the guidance of the specialist team at Atech to help us determine our strategy and define best practices whilst evaluating our business needs and the tools already available to us from our existing license investments.”
Together with the right people from our clients’ organisations we can ascertain what’s already in place and which tools are essential to maintain a secure environment for hybrid working and frontline workers; not forgetting those that have a requirement to be fully based within office environments.
