Company Profile:

Certero is a leader in the development, delivery and enablement of enterprise-level solutions which help customers maximise the value they get from their IT investments, thereby driving transformation and organizational advantage. Founded in 2007, fully independent and with a track record of continuous growth, Certero’s UK headquarters and hubs in Europe, North America and APAC support hundreds of large and small public sector and corporate customers across the globe. With core expertise in all elements of IT hardware & software asset management (from desktop to datacentre and across Windows, Mac, Unix and Linux platforms), Certero’s innovative, highly-automated, leading-edge solutions and services help organizations manage their software expenditure, minimize costs and streamline the entire software lifecycle. By utilizing specific licensing optimization solutions covering key vendors such as Microsoft, Adobe, Oracle, IBM and SAP, we have helped save our customers literally millions of dollars. Besides ITAM and SAM, we have also developed point solutions covering mobile device management, PC power management, self-service password management and self-service application requisition/deployment, all aimed at enhancing user experience, improving convenience, reducing manual intervention and saving time and cost. Certero’s best of breed, genuinely free from legacy, solutions run on the Certero Platform, meaning they can operate individually or alongside other Certero solutions; but crucially, together they perform optimally and holistically as one single solution: truly unique. This delivers one common data source, underpinned by a comprehensive business intelligence and reporting engine, giving users and decision makers the ability to cut and dice a vast array of highly granular data which in turn facilitates improved planning, management and control. A common user interface also removes the need for multiple ongoing training expense and disruption. Through a combination of the highest levels of professionalism, skills and experience, coupled with an on-going commitment to quality and customer service excellence, it’s our people, process and technology which sets us apart. At Certero we believe real-life customer experience and a 100% satisfaction rating speak far louder than marketing hype. Time and again we are proud to hear that ‘with Certero it’s just a better experience…’
