Best 3 ways to save on SaaS subscriptions

You want total insight into your SaaS environment to manage your investment. From the USU solution dashboard, you can monitor usage and storage limits, customize workflows, and re-harvest unused licences. Here’s how it works:

1. Use what you pay for

It’s good business to avoid paying for subscriptions and services you don’t use. Deactivate unused accounts, analyze inactivity hotspots, and monitor unexpected consumption and over-limit charges.

2. Reduce your subscription costs

Avoid unnecessary purchasing with features like automatically reusing subscriptions. You can also monitor compliance metrics like maximum storage space and indirect access when integrating with other business applications.

3. Know who’s using your apps

Keep your environment secure and your costs low by always knowing who has access to your cloud applications. This lets you manage your subscriptions and eliminate unauthorized access.
