The Root of the Problem
Most companies are proficient at negotiating IT purchases, but have traditionally struggled to manage contracts, maintain hardware assets, comply with software licensing terms, and control recurring maintenance spend. There are many tools that provide asset inventory tracking, but most IT organizations struggle to keep this information up-to-date, and more importantly, are not able to leverage them to identify and sustain savings. The root problem is incomplete or inaccurate information from hardware and software vendors, compounded by the lack of a dedicated systematic approach.

BLC’s Technology Lifecycle Management ( TLM ) combines our proprietary software tools, customized portal and managed services, delivering a robust platform to manage your vendor contracts, amendments, maintenance renewals, hardware inventories and software licensing.
