Initial Enquiry

In the first instance, we can be contacted by phone, email hello@Ingdev.co.uk or our online enquiry form. This will give us a high level view of what is required, where you are audit-wise and which of our team we will need to inform of your enquiry to be able to assign the necessary resources. We simply need to know what you need and how we can help you.

Client Discussion & Landscape Evaluation

A member of IngDev’s SAP License Management team will contact you to arrange a call that usually lasts around 45 minutes. This involves us asking a number of questions to allow us to evaluate your business landscape to get a better understanding of what is required and to give you impartial and independent advice moving forward. We would welcome any questions you may have to help you get a better understanding of how we work and can also make clear things that you may not have thought would have been an option to you.

Customer Proposal Set Out & Delivered

An important stage to most of our customers where we will be recommending which of our services we would offer, be it audit defence services, license optimisation, renewal support, legal evaluations or other.

At this stage we can usually give a good estimate of the cost parameters and the timescale based on our expectations

Data Gathering

There are a number of ways in which we can gather the necessary data and plan out the technical schematics. We can either gather the required information by coming to you on-site or doing it remotely – whichever works best.

Analysis of Contractual Material

Once all the necessary data has been gathered, our IP law experts will inspect your contractual obligations at a very granular level to produce a detailed overview for our technical team to work with.

Analysis of SAP Consumption Information

We use our expertise by employing the inbuilt functionality of SAP to extract the usage data from each system. Once we have done this we take it and consolidate it into a holistic view.

Creation of Consolidated Current State of ELP (Effective Licence Position)

We take the holistic system data we extract from step 6 and reconcile that information we have gathered against the licences owned to create a very detailed single page summary of compliance, also known as an ELP (effective licence position).

Recommendations for Optimisation, Audit Defence or Process Improvements Made to Customer

Once we have consolidated the current state of the ELP, we are able to then create highly effective custom recommendations for our clients to reduce their costs, curtail any non-compliance licence liabilities and put the appropriate optimised processes in place providing the best cost-efficiency for future SAP licencing.

Ongoing Support & Advice

We understand what is required to build up long term working relationships with our clients and in many cases we serve as the ‘go-to’ support partner for them. Our trustworthiness for results ensures that we not only have to move in pace with SAP’s almost constant changes to their licensing, but also that we remain our clients number one choice when looking at SAP License management and license optimisation services.
