The Problem: Company spend on Technology was higher than necessary for 30 seat service company.

Recommendations given:

1. Review your service provider 

  • Your monthly support costs are 20% higher per person than similar companies in your sector. Take some time with your Service Provider to understand why this is happening and what value you are receiving from them. 

2. Rationalise your tools 

  • Your business is subscribed to multiple tools that deliver similar functionality. Pick a tool migrate your information, and then cancel the rest. 
  • Put in place procedures for the review and approval of all new tools. The introduction of new software should either solve a problem or replace one or more piece of software.  

3. Cancel unused licenses 

  • You still maintain licenses for staff who have left your organisation. Not only is this costing, it also creates a risk profile. Save all data from these accounts, then cancel the licenses 

Managing spend not only saves you money, it also ensures your business is as efficient as possible. Don’t pay more than you need for technology.

We will definitely be consulting with Ant again and are happy to recommend him.

During project management, Ant came into his own... Ant gets his head round your business and [took his time] understanding our context. He was really clear about pausing on investment into the app...Ant's inquisitive, curious and approachable - he's very easy to work with."
