[I see this forum's "remember me" still has amnesia...]
One of the things I looked for when implementing our PSA/RMM solution was software license usage auditing (e.g., Microsoft Office user licenses). I liked what I saw for that in N-able more than any other, but obviously it wasn’t my final choice.So, I’ve been running ConnectWise and Kaseya for a while now, and never did find a solution I was happy with. I can apply licenses manually to individual users in ConnectWise, but I’m not aware of a way to audit that usage compared to actual licenses. I can scan systems in Kaseya and get a report of all the systems a given license key is on, but it’s not a particularly useful report, as the license keys don’t necessarily correspond to software actually installed or users using it.Am I missing something obvious, or is there simply no there there? Is there no practical PSA/RMM-based license management solution?

updated my post to have 2011. Good catch.
Software Licensing and Metering (usage) etc is coming in Asset Management to be delivered in 2011 (likely summer)
Hope that helps.
Thanks for that answer... ah, do you perhaps mean 2011, not 2010?
BTW, any idea what the pricing model will be for people like us who have been on Kaseya for a couple of years already?
