Licensing management and contract compliance

Is your intellectual property protected? PwC performs royalty examinations and software licence reviews to help maximise your revenue

Did you know that unmanaged software assets can lead to significant unexpected costs?

Protecting your IP and intangible assets, on the other hand, can result in increased revenues, added shareholder value, better relations with business partners and improved compliance and revenue streams.

Ask yourself the following:

Is your software asset management (SAM) tailored to your organisation's needs?

Our SAM specialists work with you to optimise your software deployment and decrease overall costs.

Is your business alliance paying sufficient royalties?

Effectively monitoring partner compliance is difficult, especially if you have a large number of alliances and complex financial provisions.

Do you have enough resources for contract compliance?

Lack of appropriate resources, poor communication between departments, absence of understanding of contractual obligations or high staff turnover can make compliance difficult.

If you answered no to any of these questions, it’s time for a talk with our Licensing Management and Contract Compliance specialists.
