Zluri has uncovered the possibility of cost savings amounting to $3 million for the company.
They lacked a comprehensive view of their SaaS ecosystem, including users, usage patterns, and spends. This limited visibility gave rise to issues such as SaaS sprawl, wasted spends and inefficient renewal management.
It was also becoming difficult for their IT team to determine which applications were being used by employees and to track their associated costs.
So they were on the hunt to find a solution that helped them resolve the grey area of SaaS.
The fintech giant turned to Zluri to get a single source of truth about everything SaaS. By implementing Zluri, the company gained a complete overview of its SaaS applications, users, and costs. With all these dots connected, Zluri was able to provide cost optimization insights.
During the initial stage, the company integrated 20 apps from the Zluri Application Catalog. Leveraging Zluri's capabilities, the company identified inactive users who were assigned licenses for these applications. Following this, the unused licenses were promptly deprovisioned, resulting in savings of more than $200,000.
After getting complete visibility into their SaaS landscape, the fintech company was able to identify overlapping applications across various software categories. For instance, the employees were using both Slack and Google Hangouts for instant messaging within the organization. By identifying redundant apps, Zluri has uncovered the possibility of cost savings amounting to $3 million for the company.
