We have been using the FlexNet Manager Suite for the past 4 years in a number of customers and situations. We have seen the product evolve from a desktop tool into an Enterprise Software Management solution cover a vast number of Server based software titles and complex measurements. We have experienced other so called SAM tools and they are still lack the overall flexibility and technology integration which is required in a real SAM practice. FNMS does not do everything, but it fits in well with most software vendor discovery tools and fills the gap of the major software vendors today and covers approximately 80-90% of the spend in most companies. This one fact makes it a must for any organization who is serious about implementing a SAM Practice and providing real and immediate savings to management.

I use Flexera currently and also at my previous employer. There is no better way to get ahead of the compliance curve to view your software landscape. This software pays for itself in soft and hard savings. The ability to go from big picture to individual compliance is quick and easy. The ARL is the "secret sauce". The ARL provides that security of no matter what the software companies do with their license models Flexera will keep you up to date with those changes, and in some cases tell you how to manage your landscape better
