DeskCenter joins FAST to develop UK business

IT life cycle management specialist becomes latest member of industry body

The Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) has today announced that DeskCenter Solutions, an international software vendor specialised in IT life cycle management, has become the latest software vendor to join its diverse membership community.

Established in 2007, DeskCenter, a German software manufacturer of IT lifecycle management, has amassed 20 years  of experience. Offering award-winning software and consulting services, DeskCenter helps their customers to regain control of their software licensing arrangements, offering increased transparency and legal certainty.

DeskCenter’s joining of FAST coincides with the opening of its UK office. FAST membership will help them establish the brand in the UK and start developing the business.

Terry Jordan, Managing Director at DeskCenter, said: “Software Asset Management (SAM) is all too often approached by businesses as an afterthought, with many yet to fully realise the benefits that can be achieved through the tools and solutions currently available. Properly managing the software licence estate does not only help to ensure compliance, but also proactively drives best value in procurement and reuse, and prevents unnecessary overspend on ‘shelfware’ programmes that go unused or underused.”

“FAST has a long history of educating UK organisations in these matters, and we look forward to working closely with them and their members to promote the legal use of software to the wider business community,” he continued.

Alex Hilton, CEO of FAST, said: “DeskCenter’s extensive experience in the field of licence management makes them a very welcome addition to our membership roster, and we are confident that they will make a valuable contribution to our SAM special interest group. Our members are directly responsible for the direction of FAST and we will work together to improve education for businesses as they look to manage their software licence estates.”
