The first provider using TÜVIT-certified license transfers

Soft & Cloud gives legal certainty

At Soft & Cloud, used software is safe. The license managers make certain of this. They check each individual license for its origin and rights of use, thereby fulfilling record keeping requirements. TÜV Informationstechnik GmbH in Essen have verified these transparent, careful review processes. The seal is recognition of individually customized processes, taking the current legal situation into account.

Active protection against over- and underlicensing
Overlicensing represents avoidable costs for you. Underlicensing could lead to penalties during audits. Both are avoidable. On request, Soft & Cloud’s licensing consultants will check your actual license status and establish a target status for your company.

Soft & Cloud audit support
An audit by the software developer often causes unrest in the companies concerned. With Soft & Cloud, you can take a relaxed approach to an audit. Soft & Cloud’s audit advisors will share their wealth of experience with you, check your license portfolio and prepare you for the upcoming audit in the best possible way.

Soft & Cloud meets all the criteria for secure license transfers

The TÜVIT certificate

Soft & Cloud is the first used software reseller whose license transfer has been certified by TÜV Informationstechnik GmbH’s certification body. Since 2015, Soft & Cloud has continually met all requirements and can therefore guarantee the origin and audit security for all licenses. TÜVIT examines the license transfer process based on numerous parameters. The evaluation criteria for secure license transfers were drawn up based on the ECJ ruling C-128/11 of 07/03/2012 and take into account the requirements set out for marketing used software licenses. Soft & Cloud meet all these criteria in full.
