Bochum University of Applied Science Chooses Kivuto Cloud to Streamline Software Delivery to Over 10,000 Users

816 300 Kivuto
  • Chicago, IL

Kivuto, a leading provider of academic digital resources, is pleased to announce that Bochum University of Applied Science in Germany has chosen Kivuto Cloud to securely manage and distribute digital resources to over 10,000 students, faculty, and staff.

Like many higher-education institutions, Bochum deals with numerous software vendors and licenses a wide range of digital products, including solutions from Microsoft, Adobe, Sophos, and Oracle. Bochum chose to implement Kivuto Cloud to centrally manage and distribute these digital resources and have plans to offer additional products through it in the future.

Cloud license management and provisioning is a challenge for academic IT departments as it is difficult to actively manage those who have access, the length of time and amount of access, and the rules around software license use. Kivuto Cloud addresses these challenges, empowering educational institutions such as Bochum to effortlessly deliver both product key license verification and distribution and named user license distribution. Kivuto Cloud allows organizations to manage, distribute, and recover costs on any digital resource in a single cloud-based platform.

Jeff Blacklock, President at Kivuto, said: “We are pleased to have Bochum as a Kivuto customer. We know that the Bochum IT team appreciates Kivuto Cloud’s hands-off management and visibility into adoption rates through our reporting functionality. Bochum University of Applied Science has increased their resource adoption rates by close to 50% since they started using Kivuto Cloud. Additionally, they had 250 fewer support requests in the first six months after the solution was implemented compared to the same time the year before – great indicators of success!”

Michael Tomath, Bochum University of Applied Science, said: “I have been impressed with how easy the Kivuto platform is to use and manage. The Kivuto Cloud platform addresses our needs, meets our security requirements, and is extensible to support what we will need in the future. We really appreciate Kivuto’s hands-off management and the visibility into adoption rates offered by the reporting functionality.”
