Money Saved on Software Licenses

Money Wasted on Unused Software
It is very common in large organizations for money to be wasted on unused, licensed software.
This is due to the fact that such organizations, because of their size, have difficulty assessing accurately how licensed software is being used. The result is that more licensed software is purchased than is actually required. Very often the licensed software is used rarely, and sometimes not at all.
This particular school board purchases a lot of educational software for learning mathematics, language, etc. The software is expensive, sometimes very expensive.
WorkTime Offers a Solution
WorkTime audits the usage of software, so that the management may know who used the software, when and for how long. It may be seen by glancing at the WorkTime reports. WorkTime reports show how often a particular software is in use, and who is using it. If an expensive software is not being used or is used rarely, WorkTime reports will show it. WorkTime helps to consider whether to discontinue the software license, so as to save money for the organization. In addition, WorkTime served to regain control over the usage of a lot of neglected educational software, which improved the quality of the educational process.
Money saved, Educational Process Improved
During the first days of monitoring, it became obvious to the management that a lot of very expensive software was not being used at all, or was used very rarely. As the unused software was eliminated, the school board was able to save a lot of money. Subsequently, as an additional benefit, some very useful teaching software was implemented, whereby the educational process was ultimately improved.
WorkTime is computer monitoring software serving to identify both the use of programs and the frequency of their use. It works unobtrusively and with respect for the privacy of employees.
