World-class expertise

Many organizations that handle license management in-house have assigned one person to deal with everything. This is often a back-office employee with limited knowledge of the process. At Pipol, we have dedicated employees taking care of all our customer’s licenses. By having knowledgeable professionals handling the entire process in a centralized, formal way, we can act fast. Plus, it frees up those back-office employees so they can focus on other tasks that add value to your business.
