All SAM functionality - from data connectors to software recognition - is included at no extra cost.

AssetLabs - the leader in cloud-based SAM & License Audit Analysis - announces Prelude; a cloud-based SAM solution that empowers corporations & SAM advisors to maintain Effective License Positions (ELP) of leading software vendors.

As a cloud-based solution, Prelude re-purposes inventory data already collected by leading endpoint management solutions (SCCM, Altiris, Landesk, etc.) and delivers a portfolio-centric license & cost-risk analysis on a persistent basis.

Unlike, other SAM products that demand a ‘do-it-yourself’ approach and requires costly data connectors and billable software recognition services, Prelude includes a dedicated support team of IAITAM certified license experts.
