Simplify your software procurement
Cost reduction and cost avoidance are priorities for any business, even more so in today’s climate. Software procurement is inherently complex, SCC’s approach helps simplify that complexity.
Software spans many technology types across a wide range of categories. Managing software and standardising your product portfolio, ensuring cost efficiency and software compliance is critical. This has led to ever increasing overheads and demands for software supplier management, strategic roadmap management and the requirement to manage, standardise and rationalise your software strategy.
Software procurement and renewal is becoming a big issue for many organisations and in many cases is a source of uncontrolled spend. From our experience there are a number key issues businesses are currently facing.
How SCC can help
SCC can reduce software sourcing and Software Asset Lifecycle Management costs within your organisation. Our team of specialists will evaluate your current software procurement process, digital transformation strategy and governance.
Our extensive experience in procurement management enables us to efficiently assess whether the technology and contracts within your organisation contain the correct software products and commercials to meet the business needs. We will analyse areas which may impact your business such as market trends, license metric changes and price rises. This will help to secure the right software products, at the right time under the right contract terms.
For most organisations software spend is categorised into three distinct areas: strategic, multi-tier vendors and tail vendors.
