Software Usage Metering
Express Software Manager provides comprehensive and detailed software usage statistics so you can avoid purchasing and supporting applications that aren't being utilized. By identifying unused software, you can reallocate copies to users who truly need them, or renegotiate software contracts so they reflect actual usage—saving your organization significant amounts of money.
Metering capabilities scale to the largest of organizations by allowing control over data caching and transmission frequency.
With Express Software Manager's software metering capabilities, you can:
- Determine how often (and by whom) specific applications are being used
- Identify unused and underutilized licenses
- Monitor the use of unauthorized, harmful, or "nuisance" applications
- Collect detailed software usage statistics including start time, stop time, idle time, and peak usage
- Track usage statistics for applications launched via Windows Terminal Server or Citrix XenApp server (learn more)

Medavie Blue Cross
Express saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars. It has paid for itself many times over. But our return on investment is also in the intangibles… confidence, peace of mind, a sense of control. I would have no problem if we were audited tomorrow.
Standard Life of Canada
Express Software Manager has saved us nearly $100,000 by preventing continued investment in software we don't need. This is a windfall relative to our out-of-pocket investment in the technology.
Now we know the number of software licenses installed and being used at any given time. We know right away which software is not being used, and now can repurpose and reallocate our existing licenses. This certainly adds up to a healthier financial bottom line for us.
Express Metrix was a perfect fit for us… it has already helped us save nearly $500,000 in licensing costs!
