CreedPro hunts down wasteful and inaccurate technology expenses to increase profitability.

It is nearly impossible for any IT organization to keep up with the invoices, product changes, pricing and licensing models.

CREEDPRO’S TECHNOLOGY AUDIT SERVICES INCLUDE

Price Benchmarking to obtain the best rate

> Compare your invoiced pricing to providers current rates so you can see if you are overpaying.
> Compare your current provider to other providers for comparable services to see how well they stack up against the competition

Performance Analysis of your existing services to identify what is underutilized. It is very common for services to be over or under provisioned or no longer in use which is burning real budget money.

Accuracy - Odds are invoices do not align with the agreement pricing you signed up for. We regularly find services not entered with the correct pricing code and find common billing errors that go overlooked because your AP department does not understand what is on the inovice.

Design - Infrastructure and Communications architecture can be very complex. Do you choose on-premise, cloud, hybrid, SD-WAN, MPLS, express route, opex, capex, hosted, outsourced, etc. So many choices. We can help you determine which is the best fit for you organization.

The primary reasons organizations over spend on technology are:

Price Changes – Technology services are a very competitive and fast paced vertical. Vendors constantly make price and product changes that are difficult for organizations to keep track of to maintain a healthy level of cost optimization.

Utilization –It is very common to both over and under estimate resources utilization. People tend to over purchase and size services based on what they think is best to make sure they have enough burstability to provide a good user experience. Rarely do they go back and look at performance metrics to see what they really need.

Ungoverned Deployments – IT is very common for an employee to use a credit card to add ungoverned technology services. These expenses and services can ride under the radar as shadow IT leading to overspending.
