Software-as-a-service (SaaS) has likely reduced your workload, improved your company’s efficiency, and boosted your bottom line, but how much are you spending on the big picture of SaaS?

The rise of SaaS apps and how frequently and easily they are downloaded and deployed has made capturing efficiency and productivity savings possible — but apps sprawling across your day-to-day operations have hidden costs.

Many organizations pay multiple subscription costs for SaaS services, some of which are overlooked month-to-month. By tracking and optimizing these subscriptions, you can lower overall costs, especially by eliminating spending on duplicate subscriptions and unused apps.

Find out how a technology expense management (TEM) SnapShot Audit® is your best first step to organizing SaaS sprawl for future savings.

How a SnapShot Audit Saves Companies Thousands Every Year

Research from Gartner shows that by 2026, 75% of organizations will have adopted a digital model of functionality using SaaS to support their efforts. In 2023, projected spending on SaaS will reach $197 billion.

No matter how much your company spends on SaaS, it is critical to know that every dollar produces the best ROI possible. Without oversight, that’s challenging to know. With improved management of SaaS applications, it’s possible to streamline use and minimize costs.

Take a minute to consider the direct benefits of a SnapShot Audit:

➡️ Centralized visibility

A SnapShot Audit provides clear visibility with a comprehensive, personalized look at an organization’s overall technology service spend, providing much-needed insight into what tech they are using.

This centralized visibility can help consolidate the SaaS stack by simplifying the big picture to see:

  • What is being used
  • The cost of that use
  • What services overlap

Ultimately, a SnapShot Audit provides tech service cost control to make more informed decisions about your software investments.

➡️ Accurate usage insights & increased productivity

Stopping SaaS sprawl across an organization with a TEM audit can bring several benefits, including the exact usage of any SaaS application. Are multiple employees using it, or just one? Has the app been used in the last month? A comprehensive audit allows companies to compare usage figures among various apps that may provide similar functions or outcomes. It also allows for comparison of costs and uncovering wasteful expenditures.

Another benefit of organizing your SaaS usage? Increased user productivity. Following the ‘less is more’ rule helps prevent employees from switching between multiple tools or struggling to identify the correct tool for their tasks. A SnapShot Audit sets the stage for a well-managed SaaS stack, empowering employees with the tools they need to be most productive, without unnecessary distractions.

➡️ Streamlined & simplified cost control

By tapping into a SnapShot Audit you’re provided expert advice from an industry-leading TEM solution with over 20 years of experience. This layer of knowledge allows companies to streamline to better optimize SaaS spending.

An audit also empowers companies by alleviating the frustrations of confusing technology invoices and contract details. By simplifying SaaS sprawl, you’re empowered to analyze, control, and reduce your technology spending.

The most important reason to start a SnapShot Audit to organize your SaaS sprawl? The savings to power the future.
