The SAM Club assists Lewis Silkin LLP in achieving compliance with Microsoft’s SAM Program
We are delighted to announce that Lewis Silkin LLP, supported by The SAM Club, has been certified by Microsoft as being compliant with its (Software Asset Management) SAM Program.
Lewis Silkin LLP is a 350 user London-based leading commercial law firm renowned for its work with creative, innovative & brand-focused businesses. Leading the way in meeting clients’ needs by delivering pragmatic advice in a refreshingly human way.
Lewis Silkin LLP was one of The SAM Club first clients signing a Service Agreement for its Software Asset Management & Procurement Service in October 2010. With The SAM Club becoming certified to enter clients into Microsoft’s SAM Program, Lewis Silkin LLP was the first client to immediately sign up for its new compliance service.
The Microsoft review was completed with compliance sign off achieved in August 2017. Carol Skinner, Head of IT at Lewis Silkin, comments, “At Lewis Silkin, we have worked closely with The SAM Club for a number of years. They have become part of our team providing valuable advice, guidance and acting as a sounding board giving that added assurance that we are making the right licensing decisions and remain compliant. Having completed the Microsoft SAM Compliance Project we will continue to validate our IT infrastructure as it evolves with The SAM Club’s continued support”
Ian Nicholls, Director at The SAM Club, comments, “It’s always a pleasure to work with Carol and the IT team at Lewis Silkin. The huge number of changes that Microsoft has made to its licensing rules over the last 7 years that Lewis Silkin has been a client is astonishing.
At The SAM Club we keep pace with the new licensing rules, advising our clients on the potential impact and the licensing options available. As we are not software resellers, we have our client’s best interests at heart to ensure the right decisions are made for their business.”
