What if only 500 people out of your 5,000-person workforce use ALL the features of your office automation suite? Head office may depend on it day-to-day, but what about the employees on the manufacturing floor who only use it to look at their email? Getting a clear picture of who needs what is a lot of work, and companies end up overpaying as a result.
Enter our software licensing optimization experts: they’ll do the heavy lifting to pare your licenses down to exactly what you need so you don’t waste money on what you don’t use.
We help you understand real value
Software companies have complex sets of SKUs ranging from bundled offerings with all the bells and whistles to more stripped-down products. But they don’t make it easy to figure out what the best value actually is. (Spoiler alert: it’s probably not the bundle they’re pushing hardest.) They want to sell you what’s best for their bottom line, so you’ll pay for features you don’t need, or overpay for the ones you do.
When you’re being offered different bundles, it can be a bit of a shell game: it’s common practice to make the “upgrade” look like a better value than it is by inflating the price of a more basic package. So what’s the solution? Bring us in for IT cost optimization. Our experts will look at both bundles and determine the true price difference so you can make an informed decision.
