How about something in the line:
“OpenChain helps SaaS providers to provide the needed information on their
client-side software in order to comply with the key international Open Source
license compliance processes.”

…I’m not 100% happy with it, but offer it for butchering.

For the reasoning behind it, I’m copying from my reply from the openchain-
specs list re FOSS compliance risks in SaaS:

• least risky, as code is in generally not distributed (NB: AGPL, EUPL)
• caveat: client-side (e.g. JavaScript) code is still traditionally
distributed, and as such fits in that category
• (ultra-LTS is not very likely)
