The software licence compliance section can be found under the risks section. From here you can quickly see if there are any gaps in your software compliance based on how many copies of a title you purchase against how many are being reported back as installed.

In this view you can quickly see each software title, the manufacturer, and the contract that it is associated to. On the right side you can see the columns for "Quantity" which is how many that you have specified that you purchased, and "Inventory" which is the number of that particular title being reported back as installed by the Samanage agent. The column to the far right called "Variance" will quickly show you how many extra licenses you have or how many licenses you are using over the amount purchased. This negative variance will show the titles that might be an audit risk so that you can take the appropriate actions.
