Providing the insight you need for 30+ years

Sassafras Software was founded in 1989 by a Dartmouth College math professor and a top graduate student. Born out of an urgent need to manage a limited number of Mathematica licenses, selling a product was never the goal; solving a genuine ITAM challenge was. More than 30 years later, our mission remains the same: help IT admins save time and money with IT Asset Management solutions that solve real problems, without creating more. That last part is key. What good is a solution if it creates more problems than it solves? Are you really saving money if the “money saver” is just another money pit?
That’s not what we’re about. Sassafras helps manage IT Asset inventory through lifecycle management, purchase tracking, usage monitoring, and flexible reporting. That’s it. We accomplish this mission by delivering reliable, lightweight tools and services with first-class training, startup assistance, and technical support. Our ITAM solution has become a critical component for license compliance and software cost reduction efforts in some of the largest corporate, educational, and government enterprises worldwide.
