Summary

Your organization has chosen to use Snow Software to ensure that use of licensed web applications throughout your organization is compliant with the terms and conditions of licenses procured. This extension for Chrome monitors usage of licensed web applications and sends data to your internal service responsible for managing software licensing.

Terms and conditions governing compliant use of web applications vary according to vendor and product. Some applications, for example, are free to use without a license. However, an application can become license applicable if several persons from the same organization use company credentials when signing up. Suddenly your organization is liable for a business license, which can be expensive if discovered, but can present substantial unplanned cost if left undetected prior to an audit.

Snow aims to prevent organizations from overspending on software. Our solution provides enterprises with full visibility into their software estates, including intelligence related to license compliance, an understanding of software-related costs, a means to avoid the risks associated with audits, and opportunities to optimize spend.

You cannot remove this extension due to settings made in your organization’s IT environment.

Hello, I hope you're having a splendid day! I am currently seeking opportunities to expand my business operations by investing in extensions with a significant user base, beginning from 50,000 users and up. No matter if your extension has a modest user base or counts its users in the millions, I am interested and ready to negotiate a purchase. If you are in possession of such an extension and looking to turn it into a profit, please consider reaching out to me. We can discuss the price and proceed with a transparent and secure transaction through a trusted escrow service based in the United States. It's great that Google allows the transfer of extension ownership between accounts, so your Google account ownership will remain intact. If you have any needs, please contact us via the following contacts Whatsapp: +1 (248) 896‑8035 Telegram: t.me/harryysandersonn
