Heavy Industrial Leader in Portugal Expands its Investment in Vector’s Software Asset Optimization Technology


January 26th Atlanta GA, Montreal and Birmingham UK   Vector Networks Europe announces the supply of another 1,000 licenses of IT Asset Manager Pro to Portuguese engineering company EFACEC.

EFACEC ( is a major global player in electrical power transmission technology. Headquartered in Portugal, and with $1.3bn revenues generated by 4,500 employees, EFACEC has presence in 46 countries.  Effective January 2012, EFACEC have expanded their investment in Vector’s IT Asset Management technology from 2,500 to 3,500 licenses, and at the same time adopted the Software Metering (Software Usage Measurement) module.

Dean Bates, Technical Lead at Vector Networks Europe, observes - “We see a very wide range of maturity in the Software Asset Management tools and processes that organizations deploy. Often, the first stage is to establish a granular and comprehensive inventory. Once that is in place, and the quality of data has created confidence in the tools, an organization will progress to studying the pattern of use of the licenses in which they have invested so heavily, and pay so much to keep current and supported. Often, this progression provides the first significant opportunities for major cost savings. Unused software can either be retired, and maintenance costs eradicated, or de-installed and re-deployed where wanted in the organization, avoiding additional purchases.”

Erick Yanez, Vector’s VP Development, remarks – “EFACEC quickly adopted our recent v6.0 release. The speed increase on software inventory enables them to refresh their database daily, providing the software asset management team with highly accurate data. We are also excited about the opportunity that v6 gives them to measure usage of applications running on thin client devices on Citrix or MS Terminal Services.”

The v6.0 release also expanded the Web-based Reporting, including the reporting of Microsoft OS and Server license keys, and supports integration with Vector’s License Manager Pro and Change Manager Pro solutions.
