Responses to our Software Venting Corner at AU 2019
It’s a no-brainer that most people who are interested in Cetrus Process Meter (CPM) are in IT, BIM management, and Finance. We save them time and money because our data allows them to make informed decisions around software.
With Autodesk University (AU) 2019 in less than two weeks, I thought it’d be fitting to tell a story that is the basis for our messaging at AU.
Hello! Last week I went to the Midwest University (MU) conference for the first time! This blog post includes information about the event and my top 5 lessons learned as Marketing Manager for Cetrus.
Cetrus Process Meter (CPM) is a powerful tool that helps companies save money on software licensing. By installing an Agent on users’ desktops, CPM is able to collect detailed information about how software applications and licenses are used. Armed with this data, Cetrus customers are able to see how many licenses to buy and analyze application use to maximize efficiency. For more info about all that we can do, check out our platform page here.
Last week we released a new and improved version of CPM!
2018 is not just another 2017. 2018 is the year organizations realize they need different (and more) data than ever before to make informed application licensing decisions. In this post we’ll briefly touch on two of the major changes happening in the marketplace and what questions you need to ask to prepare your company for success.
A business truism is that competition and margin pressures increase every year. AEC firms need to improve the quality and quantity of their project data, to identify ways to stay competitive and increase profits. Let’s face it, to remain an industry leader you need to find innovative and creative ways to reduce costs and improve your business practices. One source of project-related data (that just recently became available) is file-level application and license use information.
At Autodesk University last week we had some great discussions with Autodesk users. They described an amazing variety of licensing problems and monitoring needs. Needs ranged from simply seeing peak consumption of licenses, to wanting Revit plug-in monitoring. In addition, there was a lot of concern about how to report use as licensing models move to SaaS and cloud pay-per-use.
This is the third post in a series of use cases for application use data. In this post, we’ll look at the three ways that associating application use to a project can impact organization revenue and efficiency.
