What we do
Softcat offers Cisco Smart Accounts for smooth and efficient management of all your Cisco software assets. A single, central online location makes it easier to find, manage and control your Cisco licences, so you don’t have to worry about filing or losing electronic or paper versions. Rather than being assigned to a specific individual and device, the account is assigned to your organisation, simplifying management and oversight. We can help you migrate from traditional licensing to smart licensing.
The Softcat Cisco Software Team are here to help speed up the process of registering your Cisco Smart Account, and ensure you are maximising the benefit of the portal. Follow our step-by-step process below to get started!
Cisco Smart Accounts makes it easier to move licences between devices; the portal does the hard work for you and no manual work has to take place. You can also split licences up in different virtual accounts, meaning licences can be deployed across different sites or locations and easily viewed and managed in one place.
For a simple, clear and consolidated view, Cisco Smart Accounts offers software licence management in one central tool, giving you total oversight through a single system.
Cisco Smart Accounts provides a clever tool to pull reports to show where licences are being used. This identifies where licences are being underused and where additional licences are required. The Softcat Cisco Software Licensing Team can then analyse the reports and work with you to quickly and efficiently ensure you have exactly the licensing you require.
As licences are centrally assigned and managed, anyone can access and use them. This means that if someone leaves your organisation, the licence isn't lost, it can simply be assigned to another user.
The system will raise an alert when a licence is coming up for renewal, meaning you'll never be caught out by an expired licence and we can start the renewal process for you. It will also notify you if you're using too many licences and we can then easily look at your usage and requirements.
Cisco Smart Accounts is the new and efficient way to manage your licences. We will help guide you through the set up to ensure you're getting the best out of the portal and then offer 24/7/365 support.
