Past News Releases


TriActive, Inc., the leading SaaS solution for IT systems management, today announced its new Free SAM tool for IT. The tool helps customers get control of the 1000's of software titles in their environment using TriActive’s industry-unique 600,000+ title software catalog. Customers also save IT dollars with Free SAM identifying unused software licenses and under-utilized assets through automated asset management. Included with the Free SAM tool are asset reports for system security assessments, software audits, license compliance, hardware and software change management, and Windows 7 readiness.

Customers get full use of TriActive's Asset Management Suite free for two months, and then get to keep the Free SAM solution forever. See more about Free SAM here, or watch the video.

“As a Microsoft EA customer, I use its Software Asset Management (SAM) team to scan my network to ensure license compliance. Microsoft’s partner, TriActive, provides an excellent asset management tool that is now free—forever. For years I used Spiceworks, but TriActive scans and captures everything, “ said Chris Niver, director of Information Technology, City of Conover, North Carolina. “Not only did I verify my MS licensing, but TriActive reports, with granular detail about every network machine, also discovered user-loaded software that shouldn’t be there. TriActive’s great Asset Inventory tool just got better—I’m excited to find out I can use it free forever. I couldn't be happier.”

Free SAM can be quickly downloaded to help IT with required operations assessments.

  •     Windows 7 readiness: OS Summary, CPU by Asset
  •     System Security Audit: Personal Use Titles, PC Security
  •     System Usage Audit: Categorized Software, MS Office True Up
  •     Software License Compliance: MS Project and Viseo
  •     Change Management: Global Hardware and Software change

“The Free SAM program helps IT assess its inventory and compliance, which is vital for every IT manager who wants to make each dollar count,” Ron Halversen, vice president of marketing at TriActive, Inc. “Even with software asset management in place, Free SAM reports use a catalog of over 600,000 titles. Reports are more granular, and slice and dice the detail for fast action–identifying location, user and license quickly and accurately. Gartner Group estimates that over 40% of the IT budget is taken by software and hardware costs, so it’s essential to have frequent audits.”
