For any Microsoft volume licensing contract, it is worth analysing annually whether products and services are still the best solution for your company. You are paying for them, so you want something in return. If this is no longer the case, it is time to replace them with a solution that is more cost effective. We believe the highest Microsoft savings can be achieved in the years before and after the renewal process. Therefore, we work to determine whether your organization is paying too much. We have been able to achieve significant savings for many of our clients with Office 365 optimization.
With Office 365 optimization, we help you analyse whether your investment in Microsoft licenses is yielding a profit. Read below which steps we take to do this and what the benefits are.

Our approach to Office 365 optimization
Our Office 365 optimization will ensure you get the most out of your licenses. We have put the knowledge we accumulated as former Microsoft experts into a targeted implementation plan with the following steps. Office 365 optimization will result in both saving a lot of money and/or making optimal use of your active licenses with your current costs.
We start with an inventory of your current Microsoft contracts, including all related documents such as amendments, customer price lists and e-mails. Based on our findings, we create an overview of all the licenses and products your company has purchased.
1. Inventory of the Microsoft contract
The next step in the Office 365 optimization is an inventory of the cloud services activated in your company. Will you need them in the future, or can certain services be deactivated?
2. Create a usage summary of activated Cloud services
- Now that we have listed all active licenses, we can estimate how much you could potentially save on your volume licensing contracts. From experience we can say that annual savings of 20% are a realistic estimate.
3. Draw up a savings analysis
4. Explore future needs
In this step, we review your roadmap to determine any further requirements for additional Microsoft software or services. If you can provide us with a clear picture, we can devise a competitive approach that will reduce your subscription costs.
The benefits of the optimization
Performing an Office 365 license optimization is very beneficial for your business. Our precise and independent approach is guaranteed to result in attractive benefits for your company.
Firstly, you can save significantly on costs. If you discover that you are paying too much for licenses that do not yield sufficient benefits, you can change this.
