5_max_200I recently had the opportunity to talk with Kim Beck, Interloc’s Business Development Manager, to chat with her about Maximo licensing. 

Kim talks with Interloc clients and potential clients on a daily basis.  She provides ongoing business support to our client base and is responsible for much of the proposal writing that we do. Her resounding message to existing Maximo clients is - With all the changes in licensing and innovation in Maximo, if you don’t know what sort of Maximo licenses you have and how you are currently using them… You need to!

Here are Kim's top 5 Maximo licensing questions that you should ask. To find out the answers and more, download Kim's e-guide to Maximo Licenses to find the answers and more.

  1. Where is that Maximo license agreement anyway?
    The reality is that with personnel changes, mergers, acquisitions, etc, the person you thought was in charge of your license agreement may now have a different job, or for that matter is no longer with the company.  Download the guide to find out how to get the information you need.
  2. Do I have the Maximo licenses I need? 
    There is a large number of Maximo products, Industry Solutions, and Add-ons, each with their own licensing metrics.  When you combine that with the number of Maximo users in your organization, and the different combinations of licenses they require in order to do their jobs, it can be difficult to ensure that you are maintaining proper Maximo licensing.   It’s good practice to review your licenses annually. Download the guide to find out what you should be looking for.
  3. What’s new in Maximo?
    A lot; IBM is dedicated to the product and meeting the needs of the market.  Download the guide to learn what new products are available and how they might help your business.
  4. What’s my renewal fee for? 
    In compliance with your Maximo IBM product license agreement (IPLA), your annual renewal fee grants access to Maximo support services and access to hot fixes, patches, and upgrade software for your Maximo implementation, whether provided via IBM or a support reseller.  Many clients choose to procure support from an authorized support vendor like Interloc. Download the guide to determine what support resources are available and how you can access them.
  5. Who do I speak to about Maximo licensing? 
    This one is easy. Reach out to IBM or contact Interloc about Maximo licenses, Maximo support or other Maximo questions in general. We are here to help.
