Case Study: License Statistics drives down Daimler Trucks’ software license costs
Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Daimler Trucks North America LLC, a Daimler company, is part of one of the world’s most successful automotive companies.

With more than 21,000 employees and annual production bigger than 118,000 units DTNA operates in a number of countries such as the United States, Canada, Mexico, and more than 35 countries outside of the NAFTA region. Apart from manufacturing, the company specializes in selling and servicing renowned commercial vehicle brands.
Experience with License Management solutions
Previously, Daimler Trucks North America LLC had no experience with using license management solutions. As a result, the company could not trim its software costs, correct its license shortfalls or plan its budget for future software purchases effectively – hence the need for a complex software license management product.
The Business Challenge
Since DTNA did not make use of any license management solution, what it needed was a highly efficient tool that would enable a detailed analysis of monitoring license usage both for real time and historical aspects. A specific capability that DTNA found very impressive was the ability to be automatically notified by email when license usage reaches certain thresholds. This solution was highly appreciated by the company. License Statistics was particularly valuable for helping DTNA align their software purchases based on usage. Generally, License Statistics, both in terms of its simplicity and its flexibility, met all DTNA’s functional requirements.
DTNA is very pleased with the features offered by License Statistics mainly because they proved to be both powerful and easy to use. License Statistics made it possible for DTNA to optimize their software purchases and significantly trim the company’s costs.
