Eracent Incorporated announced today that its software asset management product, EnterpriseEM (Entitlements Management), was nominated as a finalist in the Codie Awards, sponsored by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA). The Codie Awards showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and remain the standard-bearer for celebrating outstanding achievement and vision in the software industry. The Codie Awards provide the only peer recognition program in the software and information industry.
"The 20th annual Codie Awards continue the tradition of honoring the best of the software, content and education technology industries," said Ken Wasch, SIIA President. "When one considers the number of outstanding companies that competed this year, being named a Codie Awards finalist is a significant achievement."
Commenting on the companyÂs achievement, Walt Szablowski, EracentÂs CEO said "We have always felt that EnterpriseEM is world class technology. Being nominated as Codie Awards Finalist is both an honor and an affirmation by the industry of the quality and value of our products. With so many well-respected products and companies nominated for the 20th Annual Codie Awards we are particularly excited about what this says about EnterpriseEM.Â
EnterpriseEM is a unique Eracent solution that simplifies the often arduous task of reconciling software license ownership. Before any enterprise can reconcile software licensing against their installed or ÂdeployedÂ software, it first must accurately determine what it is entitled to use. Automating this process gives IT management the current accurate data required for informed decision-making.
EracentÂs EnterpriseEM provides an automated software license entitlements solution that provides IT managers with the ability to accurately determine what software titles they are entitled to use without costly and time-consuming manual audits, and then be able to compare those totals against installed software from an inventory. The data from the Eracent EM system is timely and accurate. EnterpriseEM reports are accepted by SIIA for software audit and compliance purposes, and are used by many large corporations as the basis for decisions relating to software licensing and acquisition.
The solution gives IT managers the ability to reconcile software licensing by utilizing software purchase transactions from multiple sources and directly uploading that data into EnterpriseEM. With the data in place, they can now aggregate and reconcile these purchase transactions using algorithms to roll-up results into reports that detail exactly what software products the enterprise is entitled to use. A critical ingredient to this process includes the unique ability to map these purchase transactions to standard naming conventions used by the inventory solution, which immediately improves the overall reconciliation accuracy- all within the same application!
When compared to performing manual software license reconciliation, the amount of time saved using EnterpriseEM can reduce the time required to perform this effort by up to 80%-90%. The Eracent solution provides licensing managers with an efficient, automated robust system that leverages the benefits of a web-based user interface and a powerful backend database.
Eracent Inc. develops and sells a family of IT asset management solutions for enterprise level organizations. Serving all industries in both domestic and international markets, EracentÂs core business strategy has been, and continues to be, to develop technologies that provide a rapid return, ease of use and full access to highly accurate data needed by IT managers in large organizations.

About the Codie Awards
In 1986, the Codie Awards were established by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that the pioneers of the up-and-coming software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work.
Since its inauguration, the Codie Awards program has carried forward the same vision-to showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and to honor excellence for corporate achievement and philanthropic efforts. Today, that industry is comprised of hundreds of software, information and education technology companies changing the way people work, learn, communicate and access valuable information.
The Codie Awards hold the distinction of being the only peer-recognition awards program of its kind in the industry, providing a unique opportunity for companies to vie for the praise of their competitors.
As SIIA evolves to serve the needs of our members, the Codie Awards program, now in its eighteenth year, remain the standard bearer for celebrating outstanding achievement and vision in our industry.
