5 Steps to Reduce Your Software License Costs and Control Your Budget

Reduce Your Software Licensing Costs

In today’s fast-paced business environment, controlling costs is essential for the success of any organization. One area that is often overlooked when it comes to cost management is software license costs. These costs can quickly add up and eat into your budget, leaving you less room to invest in other areas of your business. However, by taking a few simple steps, you can start to reduce your software license costs and regain control of your budget.

The first step in reducing your software license costs is to go over your ongoing license costs and see if and how you can reduce them. One easy way to do this is to review the users that have not logged in over the last three months. If you find that these users are not actively using the software, you can reduce their user tier, which can drop your costs by up to 20 percent.

Another way to reduce your costs is to consolidate your tools. Over time, it’s common for organizations to accumulate multiple tools that do the same thing. By consolidating these tools into one main tool, you can save on the costs of other licenses, training, and administration.

Another area to review is your add-ons. Some add-ons were purchased long ago and may no longer be used or needed. It’s a good idea to review these add-ons and decide whether to keep them or remove them. Additionally, new add-ons are constantly being created in the marketplace, and in some cases, they may be able to replace existing add-ons and reduce your costs.

Another way to reduce your costs is to look at your admin costs. Instead of using your own staff for admin services, you can outsource these services to an official vendor partner and pay only for the work that is needed. With work prioritization, you can get much better ROI for your admin costs.

Lastly, moving from on-prem based solutions to cloud-based environments can save on IT-related work and servers costs. In the long run, this can save a significant amount of funds. Additionally, check the cost difference between monthly and annual costs. In many cases, you can save money by getting an annual plan or even better if you can commit to 2 years. This will also protect your costs from license price changes that usually come once a year or two.
