After your software has gone through the acquisition and inventory phases, you will be ready to install it on your company's computers. Again, a centralized installation policy with one person or department in charge of all software deployment is optimal. Additionally, you should make sure that only those in charge of software installation are allowed to do it.

As always, you should keep all software media-including license documentation, user manuals, and installation media-in a safe storage area, and designate one department to maintain it after installation.
It is imperative that all employees receive the Software Use Policy and understand what their roles and responsibilities are regarding your company's software and hardware. Creating and adhering to this policy will help minimize the risks your organization faces by keeping your systems free from viruses, reducing the number of support calls, and keeping your software inventory up to date.
