Rethink your Salesforce investment
Salesforce is an essential revenue-driving tool. But the licensing and usage fees can add up quickly, with costs as high as 8 digits in some industries. You work hard to build the perfect Customer Success Platform for your business, wouldn’t it be nice to get more out of that investment—without having to spend more? That’s what Salesforce SaaS Management is: an optimization strategy that saves you time and costs—up to 30% initially and then 20% more over the lifetime of your SaaS subscription.
Top 3 challenges of managing Salesforce
Unused accounts go unnoticed
Salesforce only shows you the last login date. As employees join the organization, move to new roles, or leave, their accounts need to be reallocated or deactivated. How can you monitor usage and analyze inactivity across your entire organization to get the most out of your Salesforce investment?
Overstretching your resources
Salesforce doesn’t link prices to the management information, so it’s difficult and time consuming to do a cost analysis. With all the new SaaS applications being added to your organization, how can you manage Salesforce without taking up valuable resources?
Salesforce only lets you monitor accounts and usage on a per Org basis. How can you keep track of usage across multiple Orgs, so you can consolidate and right-size your Salesforce contract?
4 benefits of SaaS Management for Salesforce
Close data protection gaps. Ex-employee accounts can pose a risk to the security of your customer data, if their still active. Quickly find and deactivate unused accounts.
Get better contracts. With a complete Org overview of licenses and usage you get unprecedented transparency you can use for contract renewals to negotiate the right contract size and choose best licensing options.
Keep storage costs in check. Exceeding data and file storage limits can lead to unnecessary costs. Tracking your storage usage and needs enables you to stay within the limits and to avoid additional spending.
Manage Force.com apps. Getting an overview of your apps on the Force.com platform – such as ModelN – is just as important for controlling costs.
