Software asset management and IT compliance specialist FAST has announced a partnership with Civica Services to take advantage of the latter’s expertise in software licensing and ICT planning services.
The partnership with Civica Services will allow FAST to offer a wider range of services to its customers, which in turn will help to improve efficiency through better software lifecycle management. FAST also expects to take advantage of Civica’s product and service portfolio covering desktop and server virtualisation, cloud readiness, storage and datacentre optimisation, and security assessment services.
Matthew Barnes, managing director, FAST, said, “This partnership will help us reach our goal of providing a ‘one-stop shop’ for software asset management and IT compliance. We considered a number of software resellers and felt that Civica represented the best fit for both FAST and our customers.”
Chris Ginnelly, managing director, Civica Services, said, “FAST has helped over 8,000 companies take control of their software estate to mitigate risk and achieve compliance. It adds great value to customers by providing expertise, tools and processes through the independent FAST standard for software compliance.”
