Spend 40% less on Microsoft 365 Licensing with SLIM 360
You might already know this, but it is almost guaranteed that you are overpaying for Microsoft 365. If you took your Microsoft sales rep at their word, remove that ‘almost’ from the previous sentence.
The complex licensing structures that Enterprise contracts require are designed to confuse and inflate your spending, compliance liability, and make it harder to track who is using what licenses in your organization.
As mentioned in:
IT pros use SLIM-360 to contol licensing costs in complex environments:
“When we signed the EA we listened to what our Microsoft and reseller Reps told us we should buy. We never should have. We over-paid for 3 years. Money we will never get back. I was shocked when I saw the results. Almost 400 users that never used Office 365 at all. We thought everyone used email, but when we investigated we were shocked. Our field service reps never used a single Office 365 service. We were able to change the license we bought for them and save significant money.”
– CIO of Fortune 500 Company
“If you asked me again, I’m still not sure I’d believe it. 1000 Users not using at least email! It was true, we had the data needed to investigate it. I was shocked to find not only Accounts that were not active or even humans that had licenses but that we also had a large population of employees in our distribution centers that didn’t even use a single Office 365 service”
– IT Procurement Director
“Amazing is all I can say. With a few minutes’ effort to download reports out of our tenant, we received useful data that helped us find waste and reduced our costs by over $2M annually. We couldn’t have done this by ourselves.”
– VP of Infrastructure
