What is Licensing Optimization?

We know there are a variety of tools out there created to make your business succeed. From client relationship management software to accounting and expense cracking applications, there is a wide range of subscriptions your company many use to make daily business operations easier. How, it is easy to get bogged down with unnecessary licensing, subscriptions, and applications that are no longer relevant to you or your company.


Ensuring you have the correct license and providing the correct applications for each employee is known as licensing optimization, and it is one of the best ways Aerie Consulting, a trusted Microsoft consulting company, can help ensure that you are not overpaying for your products. A licensing review of your Microsoft applications ensures that the right employees receive the right licenses and that you are not overpaying for applications you are not using and could generate tremendous savings for your company. Curious about what it means to go through a review? Read on!

What Type of Licensing Should I have?

The right level of licensing depends directly on how many employees you have. Business licenses are suitable for smaller businesses with under 300 employees, while Enterprise licenses are generally suitable for companies with 300 employees. Once you have determined the level of licensure needed, a licensing review will consider the following to ensure you are getting the most value out of your Microsoft licensing agreement.

What are Your Business Roles?

It is important to take the time to analyze your business roles, and the licensing requirements needed to help each individual accurately and efficiently complete duties within their role. This can be incredibly important if a company is growing quickly or downsizing, as the number of licenses needed will change.

What are Your Use Cases?

Depending on your industry or the type of business you are conducting, specific applications will be necessary to your business model and strategy. Licensing optimization helps ensure that you have all of the applications covered while ensuring that you aren’t overpaying for features not relevant to your line of work.
