Salesforce License Management
Support the strategic management of Salesforce contracts, with insight into your cost-reducing optimization opportunities with Certero for SaaS – Salesforce Module.
Why Reducing Costs with Salesforce is a Challenge
Salesforce is a valuable solution to businesses and has a pricing structure to match. Whilst the challenge of ensuring that SaaS subscriptions are being utilized and provide business value is similar across most SaaS products, the added rigidity of Salesforce contracts can mean that license-optimization savings can be harder to achieve, if contracts don’t allow customers to reduce license volumes without incurring financial penalties and ‘lost discounts’, for example.
It is therefore essential that potential Salesforce customers utilize their pre-contract and pre-renewal negotiating leverage to best effect, in order to avoid being out of control and feeling stuck within an agreement that will automatically renew whilst steadily increasing in cost.
Negotiating new commercial terms requires solid business intelligence and that’s what Certero for SaaS – Salesforce Module brings; the essential evidence required to confidently reduce Salesforce licensing costs through strategic procurement.
