Who We Are
Software Licensing Advisors (SLA) was founded in 2012 by a team of Ex-Microsoft employees with the belief that Microsoft customers needed un-influenced advocacy, rule clarity, and a fully impartial advisor to help them optimize and align their technology and business goals to the proper Microsoft product licensing and purchase programs without introducing unnecessary compliance risk. Software Licensing Advisors is uniquely qualified to help you navigate the complex Microsoft licensing environment through proven pricing and optimization models.
Our associates bring a cumulative 50+ years of experience at Microsoft as direct employees in sales, licensing and SAM audit teams in both the Enterprise and Partner Group (EPG) and the Small and Midmarket Sales & Partners (SMS&P) divisions. These roles combine for a perfect blend of licensing knowledge, audit risk mitigation, roadmap alignment, and contract negotiation to achieve maximum value and agreement concessions to meet your needs. Unlike other consultancies that provide broad spend management across telecom, IT, and logistics services, our deep focus on Microsoft means accurate advice and maximum savings. And, our rationalization process combined with benchmarking is superior to mere benchmarking reviews alone, cutting some clients spend by 80%.
Software Licensing Advisors provides an independent and impartial perspective to rationalize and optimize your Microsoft investment. Microsoft Partners and Resellers have a vested interest in maximizing your Microsoft costs, and are paid by Microsoft. We are paid solely by you and we will only represent and support your best interests in strict confidence; something we felt was missing in the marketplace. SLA is not affiliated with any reseller or partner.
