Our Company – IPR-Insights License Consulting

Our Company

Reducing risk and costIPR-Insights, founded in 2002, is an independent expert providing corporate software asset management (SAM) solutions and license consultancy. The knowledge of the relevant IT, accountancy and legal aspects and understanding their interrelations are all necessary in order to manage this complex activity properly. Assembling and improving this knowledge is usually not economical within a company.

IPR-Insights has widespread industry experience, and a portfolio covering the complete SAM process. In addition to providing one-off services, applying a proprietary software asset management system (SAM-Insights), partial or complete SAM process administration is also on offer for clients.

Due to the non-transparent and frequently changing license models of software vendors, the lack of certain software licenses (risk) and the surplus of others (overspending) occur at business entities in parallel. As a vendor-independent consultant, IPR-Insights can help you reduce your risks and costs at the same time!

 

Our Team

Our team includes IT specialists, lawyers, arts graduates, economists, engineers, and financial professionals. What they all have in common is that, during the time they spend with us, they have gained unique knowledge that cannot be learned from textbooks, and they are recognized experts in their profession. We are aware that they are our most important assets, and we are constantly striving to maintain them and increase their satisfaction.

Half of the colleagues currently working with us have been members of our team for more than 5 years, and we even had the opportunity to celebrate 10th anniversaries several times! Developing our colleagues through in-house training, on-the-job training, and self-training is of utmost importance to us too. Our corporate culture, based on the shared values – professionalism, collaboration, and diversity – and supporting uniqueness and creativity, promotes both independent works, effective collaboration among different fields, knowledge sharing, and good atmosphere.

Corporate Citizenship

Values

Our company accurately preserves its written and unwritten values. We believe it is important that our business activities and all our appearances show the signs of our ethical commitment, and that our values define our movements.

Our most important values are freedom, sincerity, unconditional trust, modesty, responsibility, team spirit, and respecting family. We are proud that all our colleagues respect these values and they determine their private life too.

Quality politics

We consider working on the all-time highest technical and theoretical level, with the most careful foresight and in respect of all relative legal and professional references, as a basic expectation.

We do our work knowing the highest level of professional sources. The theory and process of our audits and reviews rely on the general rules of EN ISO 19011, and on the standards and references of ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association), a decisive organization of information technology in the United States. The COBIT (Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology) reference of ISACA is also an important post to our work, which is a widely accepted and used standard of audit technology.

Looking at the content of our reviews and audits, we rely on the ISO 19770-1:2006 standard (Information technology – Software asset management) and the related reference of the IT Infrastructure Library (Best practice for Software Asset Management).

Professional responsibility

Our business means much larger responsibility than pure project activities. We are aware of that, and try to correspond by using our competence to move forward the respect of intellectual property rights and the adequate theory of software asset management in our closer and wider environment. We hold presentations at conferences, write professional articles, and share valuable information through our websites. Our latest contribution was – as an important part of our professional efforts – assistance at the adoption of the ISO 19770-1 standard.

Environmental politics

The management and the team of IPR-Insights are committed to saving the environment. Throughout our office work and our projects, we intend to keep an environment-friendly attitude and try to stick to the spirit of ‘Green IT’.

Grant and support

We believe our business successes should have wider effects and become a success for the community as well. We feel responsible for our environment, should it mean the nature or people around us. For many years now, at each Christmas, we support a charitable trust to make the season even more mellow and affectionate. We always choose a foundation that has similar aims and values as we do. We decide after joint consideration and share the joy of giving with our clients and partners.
