Significant SaaS Overspend
As SaaS apps are a pay-as-you-go model, the risk of non-compliance is significantly reduced, but this doesn’t mean that your SaaS subscriptions don’t need to be managed. With a large portion of SaaS subscriptions unused or underutilized, organizations are wasting significant amounts of money. We often see that with effective SaaS management, organizations can save up to 30%.
A SaaS cost optimization service will allow you to get a true picture of your SaaS inventory, application utilization, and optimization opportunities. This key information can help to optimize SaaS spend and improve internal processes.
Whether you are looking to manage Microsoft 365, Salesforce.com, or Adobe CC , we are here to help.
SaaS Optimization, Designed Around a Single SaaS Vendor
Simply tell us which specific SaaS vendor you want to focus on and we’ll provide you with a simple and clear view on how you can reduce spend and optimize your estate of subscriptions/agreement. You will receive a personalized SaaS Optimization report, highlighting areas where you could reallocate unused licenses, eliminate duplicate license assignment, or downgrade the license subscription to one that is more suitable and better value for money.
You can this use this information to improve the efficiency of your internal processes, improve your contractual terms through a position of knowledge, and support better future decision making.
