Lower SaaS costs with Software Asset Management

Cloud computing simplifies work processes and Software as a Service (SaaS) is an especially good example of this.

Get quick and easy access to important apps, save time on procurement and installation, and let worries about servers and storage space fade away — after all, cloud solutions are scalable and adapt perfectly to the needs of your company. But you also know that using the cloud can mean losing control and incurring high, unwanted expenses. And make it harder for you to cost-effectively manage your SaaS solutions.

Use our solution to gain maximum transparency and a better negotiating position with providers.

SaaS Optimization gives you a complete overview of your SaaS environment and features so you can optimize subscription contracts automatically and permanently. Reliable, relevant data is accessed directly from SaaS services, such as Microsoft Office 365; Salesforce Sales, Service, and Marketing Cloud; ServiceNow; Adobe Creative Cloud; and hundreds more.

This is then processed, aligned with company data, and made available for evaluation and integration into other processes.

S/4HANA & Digital Access: Mastering the SAP® Licensing Challenge

According to current surveys, 80% of SAP customers have either already transitioned to SAP S/4HANA, are in the process of doing so, or are planning a migration.

Reduce your SaaS costs in three steps

You want to gain deep insight into your SaaS environment to control costs. With the SaaS Optimization dashboard, you can monitor usage history and subscription inventories, identify abandoned accounts, and set automatic notifications. It also helps you to reallocate unused licenses and use cheaper subscriptions to replace expensive ones with many unused rights.

01. Use what you pay for.

You don’t want to waste your money on subscriptions and services you don’t use. Usage monitoring lets you get a head start on deactivating unused accounts, analyzing inactivity, and detecting unexpected usage and fee overruns.

02. Reduce your subscription costs and risks.

Avoid unnecessary purchases by automatically reassigning licenses and reduce subscription inventories or even eliminate them. With SaaS products, you also have to consider compliance criteria, including secondary metrics like maximum storage space, maximum number of customer-specific fields, and indirect access cases when integrating with other business applications.

03. Always know who’s using your apps.

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

Gone is the confusing reporting cycle we had in the past. Now I can access high-quality data at the touch of a key. Comparing manual management of SaaS licenses with USU SaaS Optimization is like comparing a bicycle to an airplane.
