Salesforce and ServiceNow. Those are the new Oracles that if you are not managing the contract terms very closely, the costs spiral out of control. The monitoring and governing of SaaS saved us a lot and we have more reasonable terms now. Just the management and insight alone got us a long way.

Make sound SaaS decisions
Utilize tools to see and supervise all your SaaS across your entire estate.
Discover and monitor SaaS
Business units continue widespread and independent adoption of SaaS apps like Salesforce, Aha, LinkedIn, Atlassian, Zoom and Adobe Analytics without the oversight of IT. Flexera One enables you to discover more than 32,000 SaaS applications and provides API level integration to major vendors—so you can take action. And Flexera One categorizes SaaS apps, allowing you to leverage your buying power by consolidating contracts for redundant applications.
Optimize SaaS based on actual usage
Flexera One’s capabilites make reporting on active, inactive, never active users, as well as cost per user easier than ever. These reports enable you to stop paying monthly subscriptions for users who aren’t deriving value from the app. For example, you can remove ServiceNow subscriptions for inactive users with Flexera One’s capabilities. Flexera One can even suggest licensing alternatives based on feature usage. For instance, you can downsize Microsoft 365 E5 subscriptions to Microsoft 365 E3 subscriptions based on app usage.
Secure SaaS accounts
Employees come and go. Roles change. You need to protect your sensitive data stored in SaaS apps like Salesforce, Box, DropBox and NetSuite from former employees. Flexera One enables you to automatically remove accounts, secure your data and ensure compliance with GDPR, HIPAA and other regulations.
Embrace the SaaS renewal chaos
SaaS renewal management is a different paradigm than traditional three-year agreements. With so many SaaS apps coming into the environment, renewals are becoming a daily routine. Flexera One enables you to track SaaS auto-renewals and key dates so you can help your business owners develop a renewal strategy and framework.
Help the business maximize
the value of SaaS
The business owners in your organization don’t have sophisticated IT processes. They need your expertise to maximize their technology investments. Collaborate with application owners to show them their total SaaS departmental spend, active/inactive users, cost per user and cost per application—giving them the insights they need to make decisions about renewals. Advise your peers on existing apps and contracts to reduce SaaS sprawl and optimize per user pricing. Partner with the business to secure their invaluable data as employees leave the organization.
