SAM as a Service

CRAYON Your First Choice SAM as a Service Partner

SAM as a Service (SAMaaS) is a single hosted managed service that provides Crayon customers the ability to easily take control of their software and technology assets across their IT environment.

Crayon offers a range of flexible SAM solutions ranging from out sourcing specific tasks or an organization's entire SAM function. We are experts at working in on-premises, off-premises or hybrid configuration solutions and work with your choice of discovery tool, ideal for growing and evolving organizations serious about optimizing their IT estate.

Crayon is the SAMaaS specialist and offer the most flexible options available in the market today. Unlike other SAM providers we don’t force our clients to use a single proprietary discovery and inventory tool. There are many such tools available and Crayon customers benefit from this 'tool agnostic' philosophy. We have the experience and expertise to work with any discovery tool deployed and if a customer hasn't yet deployed one we can provide expert and independent advice on tool selection and deployment.

Our philosophy is that the choice of tool is the smallest part of any SAMaaS project as we believe that all have limitations and it is the long experience and expertise of our SAM Consultants and a fanatical focus on driving clear and defined outcomes from the raw tool analysis data that differentiates Crayon.
