BRADFORD, U.K. – June 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Visionsoft, a U.K.-based software company, offers customers a professional, affordable and effective option for auditing PCs through its industry standard audit tool – Visual Audit X3 software.

(c) Send2PressAccording to global software studies, twenty-seven percent of all software used in U.K. businesses is pirated or illegal and in the U.S. – 21 percent. And, as the Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) and the Business Software Alliance (BSA) continue their work to promote the use of legal software, it is even more important to be in control of a company’s IT infrastructure.

Penalties for illegal software include unlimited fines, disruption of business activity, reputation risk, and in some cases, prison time.

Visionsoft’s Visual Audit X3 software can help keep businesses out of trouble while saving significant sums of money.

So, how does it work? The software collects and collates information on all the computer software and hardware that a company has without adding additional burden or overwhelming overhead to a company’s IT department.

“We have continued to update the product over the course of 15 years,” Richard Ward, Managing Director, Visionsoft, explained. “It is a top-of-the-line product that can be purchased on a low-cost site or multi-site basis.”

Visual Audit X3 comes with at least two years of support and maintenance and in many cases the cost of the product is easily recoverable within a short time span.

“Finding over-licensed, outdated, or redundant software will instantly save companies money because they will no longer be paying for programs they do not need,” Ward added.

Tens of thousands of companies, worldwide, use Visual Audit X3 because audits are well underway within seconds of installation.

“Visual Audit made it almost effortless to audit around 150 machines in less than two hours,” Dominic Earl of Macromedia, said. “It could not have been easier.”

Visionsoft has been helping companies manage their IT assets since 1989; headquartered in the U.K., they also have offices in the U.S., Australia, and France.
