You have a system in place to remind yourself of when to pay your bills. If you forgot to pay bills, services would be cut off and your credit rating would plummet. Do you have a reminder system in place to renew your software licenses on time?
Most people depend on notifications from the software itself to remind them to renew. These notifications should be sufficient, but we all receive so many notifications from all over the place that we may hit “Don’t show me this again,” without realizing that we’re canceling renewal notifications.
When a software license expires, it’s likely to become unusable in the middle of a workday while your staff is using a mission-critical program. Not a huge downtime issue as long as your accounting department can renew the program quickly, but still an inconvenience and some lost time, and totally preventable.
Simple: Renew every program’s license on the same day. Contact the software company and let them know that you want to change your renewal date. You may have to pay a few extra months ahead in order to change this date.
Even easier: Let Quikteks manage your software licenses for you. As one of the many managed IT services we offer, we can keep track of and manage all of your software licenses. This way, you won’t miss a beat when you get hit with expired software.
