Livingstone SAM Managed Services customers can opt to include audit defense services for in-scope software publishers as part of their services agreement. This includes the creation of baseline, effective licensing position and expert advice on how to minimize compliance risks as well as optimize legitimate costs.
For a fixed-price annualized fee, Livingstone’s team of SAM experts are on standby to defend your organization against audits from either a pre-defined set of software publishers or a set number of audits over a 12-36 month period.
If you receive an audit demand from a software publisher and need immediate help, our SAM team can react quickly and manage the entire audit process on your behalf, reducing the stress, disruption and cost of responding to the software publisher’s demands.
