Software Asset Management/Distribution/Fee Collecting
I am the Project Lead to replace our POS software with a new Software Asset Management System. I say SAM because this new system will not have a physical presence unlike a POS terminal which assumes a "store". Our new SAM will be a website with license and media download distribution, acting as an E-commerce site, dealing only in virtual assets with very few actual physical DVD shipments.
My question to the community is anyone familiar with a vendor that deals only in E-commerce, with no physical location, and has worked with Higher Education before?
Some of my short list requirements are:
•Solution must be able to authenticate and authorize quantity purchases using shibboleth
•Solution must be able to distribute digital assets (PDF's, .iso, .zip) and store those assets on a server
•Solution should use an open data format to be queried from different sources for sales history
• Solution must be ADA compliant
There are more to be listed, however it can be discussed with a good candidate.
Thanks for any reply,
