Money saved on software licenses

A local school board in the U.S decided to use WorkTime employee software reports to audit software used by staff and students. Approximately 2,500 computers were monitored for a period of six months.

Money wasted on unused software

Large organizations often waste money on licensed software that is rarely used. This is because such organizations have difficulty assessing precisely how licensed software is used due to their size. This results in buying more licensed software than is required. Eventually, the licensed software is rarely or never used. Purchases like a lot of educational software for learning mathematics, language, etc., are necessary for the school board, and they can be expensive. This is why it is necessary to implement software that can fish out unused or rarely used software and save money.

WorkTime offers a solution

WorkTime employee monitoring solution provides reports that show management how often a particular software is used and which user. You can see all this information by looking at the WorkTime report. If expensive software is not used or rarely used, it will be shown in WorkTime reports. With this information, organizations can consider whether to discontinue a software license and save money. Additionally, WorkTime has been used to regain control of a lot of neglected educational software, which has improved the educational process quality.

Money saved, educational process improved

During the first days of the monitoring, it became clear to management that much high-priced software was not used or was rarely used. The school board was able to save a lot of money by eliminating the rarely used software. As an additional benefit, some beneficial teaching software was implemented, which ultimately improved the educational process.
