For each license verification type, you as a customer are obliged to participate and cooperate. Mostly with scripts or tools, software usage must be inventoried. Contracts and license entitlements are reviewed, financial and user data analyzed. In the end you will receive a license balance overview or a report. When there is a shortfall or a copyright infringement, the software vendor will use the data for a ‘settlement’.
In either way or whatever verification process you enter in, you will be busy with the verification or audit. There are strict processes in place, described in your License Agreement. Besides that, you will need deep licensing knowledge to respond to fact findings (are they true or not?). Good to know that the experienced consultants of Quexcel know how these various types of verification work, know the pitfalls, know the licensing rules and know the law.
