The end of the year is always a great time to look back on the past and look forward to the future and what it might look like. It is a great time to audit your software. One way you can do this is by looking to cut out some of the clutter within your organization’s network by examining how often your applications are used and which services you are subscribed to.
Are You Paying for Things Your Team Isn’t Using?
Why might you need to know how often an app is opened? Simply put, if you are paying for a subscription to an application that is used maybe two days out of the entire year, then perhaps you are throwing money away without getting any value in return. Knowing whether or not applications or services are being used can help you make more educated decisions about your plans moving forward.
Similarly, if you have countless subscriptions to services or applications that you do not use, then you are wasting money. We’re sure you have found yourself in this scenario; you might want to watch a television show, but you don’t want to pay for the channels, so you opt for the subscription service. When you finish the show, you let the subscription remain, even though you are not actively using it. This is wasteful and unnecessary.
We recommend that you perform an annual audit to ensure that your business is actually using the applications and subscriptions that it acquires. You’ll want to look at how often each application or service is used, what value it brings to the table, and what your employees think about using it. All of this will help you make better decisions about the future trajectory of your business.
We can give your organization a quick and easy way to check which applications are installed on which devices, as well as how often they are used. It’s a great way to see at a glance whether or not your applications are actually providing value to your business.
Working with us also gives you much greater control over the solutions your staff use to go about their day-to-day tasks. If they have tools at their disposal to accomplish whatever they need to do, they will be less likely to subscribe to a one-off service for one particular task. This is great not only for security reasons, but also for productivity; they won’t waste time finding an appropriate solution and will instead turn to what is already available to them.
