Why SaaS management is really hard, but necessary.
The modern workplace is increasingly reliant on software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscriptions to get work done. Whether you’re running a small business, startup, or corporate enterprise team, SaaS is an essential part of the way we work today.
Unfortunately, SaaS subscriptions management can be tricky. It’s hard to keep track of which services your team is using and how much each subscription costs – especially when you have multiple users in different departments or locations. That’s why you might need SaaS subscription management software, like Saasmanager. SaaS subscription management software makes it easier for businesses to manage their SaaS budgets and reduce spending on unnecessary SaaS subscriptions.
Here's why SaaS management can be hard 👇
1. SaaS is used throughout the organization
SaaS subscription management can be tricky because different people in your company are different tools. Employees of all departments are able to adopt SaaS and - in some cases - are able to start paid subscriptions. Without a process or tool in place, it can be hard to keep track of all SaaS subscriptions.
2. Your SaaS usage evolves
As companies grow, their subscription needs change as well. As people come and go, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of who is using which subscription and for what purpose. This can lead to unnecessary subscription costs and missed opportunities for cost savings.
3. Onboarding and offboarding is a hassle
One of the biggest challenges with subscription management is onboarding and offboarding employees. Onboarding new employees means - in this case - giving them access to the right tools and making sure they are set up for success. Offboarding employees can be a lot of work too – you need to make sure all their data is backed up, that they are unsubscribed from any services they no longer need and that everyone in the company knows their departure. It can be a lot of work, and it's easy for things to fall through the cracks.
Research shows you can save up to 30% on SaaS by canceling unused and underused subscriptions
SaaS is often the second biggest expense for companies, after payrolling. On average, companies spend $1,200 per employee per year on subscription services. This number can be much higher for companies with a lot of remote employees or international workers.
A recent study from Saasmanager found that businesses can save up to 30% on their SaaS spending by canceling these subscriptions. If you're a company with 50 employees and your SaaS spend is $ 1.200 per year per employee, your total SaaS spend is $ 60.000 annually. Saving up to 30% means that you can save about $ 18.000 per year on these SaaS spendings.
That's where SaaS management software comes in
With Saasmanager, you can get a complete picture of your company's SaaS subscriptions. The intuitive tool lets you quickly see which services are being used, how much each subscription costs, and how many seats are not in use. You can also easily add users to existing subscriptions or make changes to billing information – all without any disruption to the workflow.
