Recarta can assist you with your IBM Passport Advantage and IBM Passport Advantage Express contracts, covering IBM software licenses acquisition, software subscription and technical support under a single agreement. The most commercially recognised applications in the Passport Advantage program include IBM WebSphere, Rational, Tivoli, DB2, Cognos and Lotus.

Use our independent IBM Compliance services to ensure that you are only renewing what is required in your estate. Calculating PVU’s RVU’s and Sub-Capacity can be extremely confusing and we have helped many clients save money by ensuring that you are not over licensed or under licensed.

IBM Passport Advantage

With Passport Advantage, you get volume licensing designed for companies with larger IBM relationships. You qualify for volume discounts with your significant initial purchase. The Passport Advantage offering builds on the size of your individual transactions. Each Passport Advantage license you purchase comes with Software Subscription and Support.

IBM Passport Advantage Express

Passport Advantage Express offers the features of Passport Advantage with the simplicity of transaction-based acquisition. No significant initial purchase required. Renewals take place on a per-transaction basis, rather than all being synchronized to a single anniversary date and also can allow you to spread the cost over your budget year. The Software Maintenance benefit is identical to that of Passport Advantage.

Recarta can actively manage your Software License Contracts

Recarta currently manages over 50 IBM Passport Advantage clients. If you have multiple IBM Passport Advantage (PA) contracts we will help you to merge individual contracts, co-terminate them to a budget or year date of your choosing and you may also qualify for volume discounts when purchasing new licences.

As a Premier IBM Business Partner and with our expert IBM software experience, we are confident that we can reduce the price of your current IBM software renewals.
