Now is the time to take it up a notch. This second round will further accelerate our growth rate and allow us to develop properly in other markets such as the United States and Australia.

This has earned us excellent feedback and approvals, which only makes us more confident that our vision matches the needs of the market and that our strategy to achieve it is sound. This next cycle will allow us to dramatically accelerate our speed, catalyzing the delivery of the solutions that we and the ITAM community collectively believe are the future of software license management, ”said Chris Allen, CSO and co-founder of Licenseware .
