Astute Licensing has strong ambition to accelerate its growth and for this reason is working with Sci-Tech Daresbury as a partner in the Liverpool City Region – New Markets 2 Programme which is part funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This programme will part fund the work requested below and hence accelerate the impact arising for Astute Licensing. Astute licensing requires a Software Asset Management (SAM) license expert needed to support a 4-month project with Astute Licensing. This Subject matter expert is needed to aid our developer in translating further plans for software development into meaningful tasks for the developer to do who is not an SME.

Why this work?

Due to the success of Astute Licensing, time constraints on the existing SAM Subject Matter Expert is meaning less time to focus on development. As such we need another expert to carry on supporting the development work.


The outcome for this work will be a commitment of 5 days per week to support the development team as and when needed.


The strategic impact will influence the next version of our software to be released in q3.
