SLIM 360: The Only Office 365 Reporting Tool You'll Need

Having Trouble Managing Your Office 365 Account? Meet SLIM 360

Your Office 365 license is critical for ensuring productivity for your business, but how can you be certain that your company is making the most out of the licenses they have when overspending on software is so common? Take control of your Office 365 licenses with MetrixData 360’s in-house solution to identify waste and overspend in your Office 365 Subscriptions with our Office 365 Reporting Tool.  

What Does SLIM 360 Do?

The SLIM 360 platform provides you with a comprehensive report that allows us to point out areas of waste and areas of overspending. One advantage of using our tool is that we do not interact with your software environment at all, you simply provide us with key usage reports from your Office 365 Admin Portal and we upload it into our tool. We’ll be able to tell you how many users have been assigned a license, the last time they used their account, how many blocked users you have, Service Account users, and what the total cost for each product is for your company. In this way, we can provide you with useful feedback on where you can cut costs and where your company is experiencing great value.

Key Benefits

  • Massive Savings Potential for your Office 365 Budget: Typically, we have found that customers who enter into an engagement with us have roughly 30% of their Office 365 environment comprised of wasted or underutilized resources.
  • Detecting Multiple Subscriptions: Multiple subscriptions for Office 365 can be accidentally repurchased over time, especially when you have automation in place to manage (assign/unassign) your company’s subscriptions. This can prove to be a quiet drain on the IT budget.
  • Detecting Blocked Users Assigned Licenses: Sometimes having a blocked user with a subscription assigned is intentional, but other times the customer is unaware that these blocked accounts are consuming licenses and costing them money. Reducing the number of licenses for blocked users can prove to be a useful cost saving tactic.
  • Detecting Last Usage: If an account has not been active in 90 days or longer, it usually means one of two things: either the account has been retired (or at least attempted to be) or it simply belongs to a user who doesn’t need the subscription. Either cases justify the removal of the license.
  • Data Knowledge for Negotiations: Having a strong understanding of the software and its usage in your environment will let you know exactly what you need and don’t need in your next software contract negotiation with Microsoft.
