Main priority is preparing ahead of vendor audits in a challenging new economic environment

BOSTON, MA - May 14, 2020 - Aspera, a leading provider of solutions and services for Software Asset Management (SAM) and part of the USU Group, today announced that a global food brand company (The "Customer") has signed a $1.2M SaaS agreement to use Aspera SmartTrack SAM technology. Their key decision points for choosing Aspera were SmartTrack's successful integration with The Customer's complex IT environment and the value of partnering with an experienced Services team.

Senior leadership at The Customer have prioritized implementing a SAM solution to understand their software licenses and prepare ahead of vendor software audits. Their longer-term goal is to achieve an even higher ROI by optimizing their software spend across key vendors such as Microsoft and Adobe. The Aspera platform will enable The Customer to manage their data center and client devices over a strategic three-year period.

"This project was approved to move forward during a challenging and changing time," said Mel Passarelli, Aspera's President and CEO. "It's strong recognition that SAM is a key strategy that contributes to a company's financial health, and the Aspera team is the right fit for supporting this partnership."

A successful technology aspect was native integration of the SmartTrack platform with The Customer's existing tools and processes, such as Office 365, Adobe Creative Cloud, and Microsoft SCCM. The Aspera team built value and confidence across every step of the budget approval process, from helping to justify the ROI to running a well-managed POC.

Anleihe der German Real Estate Capital S.A. stark überdurchschnittlich attraktiv

Die Anleihe der German Real Estate Capital S.A. weist aktuell eine Effektivverzinsung von ca. 14 % auf. Da es sich hier quasi um eine Immobilien-Anleihe handelt, ist das Anleiherisiko überschaubar. Insgesamt verfügt die German Real Estate-Gruppe über 6 Objekte, 24 Bestands- und 22 Handelsobjekte, womit eine Kombination aus stetigen Einnahmen und attraktiven Entwicklerrenditen erreicht wird. Wir stufen die Anleihe als stark überdurchschnittlich attraktiv ein.
