One of the best changes a business can make to create efficiency in the management process is to centralize its applications into one, main portal. Overlooked bills, licenses, and data are a number one way that companies lose thousands of dollars each year. By consolidating your applications, your monthly and annual bills become easier to track and manage, and it makes it easier to spot billing errors or potential areas for price negotiation.
Here are 3 Ways Centralizing Your Applications Can Help You Cut Costs
1. Increased Efficiency and Reduced Errors
Regardless of the size of your business, trying to gather the right people, the right files, and the right data in order to access a specific application can be a nightmare. Too much time and valuable resources are wasted trying to track down information that should be uniform and together.
By centralizing your applications in a single portal or platform, all your information will be right at your fingertips. You do not need to continue to manage a variety of separate accounts for each application. With all the information for each application in one place, you can easily track your data, information, and most importantly, your billing charges.
Consolidating all your application information into one platform will allow you to compare billing charges, find errors easily, and notice software changes or irregularities. You’ll be able to see what systems are no longer being used, if applications are out of date, or if there are problems with your licenses.
2. Reduction of License and Application Cost
Once you are able to centralize your applications, you may find that you can consolidate or even eliminate some of your existing licenses and applications. Many times, businesses will have several versions of an application that they were unaware of that are now out of date or are no longer compatible with current software.
Eliminating these unused applications and licenses will reduce expenses and increase your spending budget for other areas of your business.
3. Easier to Manage and Automate
Moving all your business applications into one platform or portal streamlines your business processes, while at the same time reducing business costs. Because all your applications are centralized, this makes them easier to manage and access by not only your IT team, but also anyone in your business that needs them.
As business technology continues to move forward, we can also expect a certain amount of automation to be included in this process, which will continue to optimize and reduce costs for business processes.
