Cost And Renewal Management With Alpin
Save up to 30% On SaaS Costs
You can find cost savings in excess licenses, inactive users, mismatched license types, redundant apps, duplicate subscriptions, unconsolidated contracts, spotty renewal handling, and... should we go on? Alpin shows you the money, and pays for itself many times over in the process.
Understand Costs And Allocations
SaaS products might start with a centralized IT purchase. More likely, a small team or a single person starts the process, and soon, the product is adopted by people in other areas. It might even be free until it gets big enough. Where is the billing? What system is it in? Are there multiple subscriptions for the same product? Alpin consolidates info from all your systems, and it knows who is using each product. So you can see costs by product, department, team, individual, geography, and more.
Ensure License Compliance To Ward Off Fines
Some employees use freemium apps that are actually on corporate plans, or they share logins, or otherwise violate license terms, risking fines. Use Alpin to find users in situations that would trigger fines. Or, explain why the company had to go through an audit and pay fines because you didn’t use an automated tool to identify penalty risk.
Master Renewals And Get No Surprises
As subscriptions rise into the hundreds and then thousands, payment and renewal dates get crazy to manage. Dumb subscriptions get renewed. Important subscriptions get missed. And you don’t have the data to negotiate better pricing. Solve all these problems with Alpin’s interactive renewal calendar that alerts you to upcoming events, and gives you the info to power your negotiations.
Oversee Vendor Relationships
With SaaS vendors popping up every week, in every department, in every location, there’s no way to manually keep on top of it all. With Alpin, you can get a consolidated list of all of your SaaS vendors. And for each one, you can store or link to important documents, view contracts and financial records, see product usage statistics, identify compliance with regulations and certifications, and more.
