The cloud is the future of your software. You get easy access to essential apps for your business, save time on deployment and installation, and never worry about your business outgrowing your software.

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:
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.
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.
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.
Go beyond simple usage overviews to reliable reports that reflect your changing business needs. Want to monitor your company’s footprint without a lot of effort? Our solution shows you detailed usage so you can make business-driven decisions about your cloud subscriptions.
