SQUALIO elevates its status by becoming a certified Snow Platinum Partner

Squalio, the Latvian IT company specialized in software management and licensing solutions, has achieved an honourable Snow Platinum Partner status, becoming the only certified Platinum Partner in Eastern Europe and the Baltic region delivering the Software Asset Management (SAM) tool Snow to its clients.

According to Gartner, SAM is “a process for making software acquisition and disposal decisions. It includes strategies that identify and eliminate unused or infrequently used software, consolidating software licenses or moving toward new licensing models.”** Snow Software, the global leader in technology intelligence solutionsprovides all the necessary means to ensure the license and GDPR compliance in relation to software assets in an effort to minimize financial and legal risks, by identifying license inconsistencies, privacy breaches and inefficient software usage. The company was recently named a Leader in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Software Asset Management Tools*.

The Platinum Partner status has been achieved as a result of a mutually beneficial cooperation under the Gold Partner status, remarkable results by the professional Squalio team and significant contribution to achieving Snow business targets.

Ainis Zaharans,the Head of SAM Group at Squalio, admits

Implementing SAM program in the company has never been a simple task, considering the fact that many Eastern European companies are only now starting to recognize the business values that efficient & automated software management brings. Since we started our cooperation with Snow, we have helped more than 50 companies to increase their control over IT, software spending and compliance using technologies, which Snow has developed. We look towards bringing our unique experience to clients all across our regions to guide them throughout their SAM journey. Our recent accomplishment shows our commitment to deliver best-in-class advice to our customers and confirms our competence in the field.”

Marko Alén, Country Manager at Snow says,

“Our collaboration with Squalio has been very rewarding from the beginning. Squalio’s extensive knowledge of licensing and software asset management services has helped Snow quickly tap into new market areas and address a new set of customer needs. They have the ability to comprehensively serve the customer, both in terms of Snow’s added value and addressing the most challenging use cases where software asset management services can offer immediate benefits. We are very pleased with Squalio’s new role as our Platinum Partner and look forward to continuing to see this successful partnership flourish.”
