Recent Customer Testimonials

  • Presidio Trust

    "Broomstick’s licensing assessment process allowed our organization to reconcile the software we have installed to the licenses we have purchased and verify our organization is in compliance with our contractual agreement. Additionally, they helped us understand some of the complexity and recent changes in Microsoft’s software licensing policies. Their assistance proved to be invaluable in providing peace of mind that not only are we in compliance, but utilizing the licenses in a way that benefits the organization."

  • NewBay Media, LLC

    When it comes to understanding Microsoft’s agreements, licensing, program types, and opportunities to save money, the Broomstick team is unique in the industry given their experience and knowledge - we learned a great deal about contracts and licensing. We appreciated working with an organization that does not sell software and is truly independent of Microsoft and software resellers. The Broomstick team helped us with an internal audit comparing the licenses we own with the ones we deployed.  Broomstick identified areas we could optimize our licensing, reduce our software cost and mitigate risk in the future. Their process resulted in significant ROI to our organization now and in the future. We will continue to use these folks for licensing guidance and support in the future.
