Microsoft 365 Cloud Optimization

Office 365 optimization

For any Microsoft licensing contract, it is worth analysing whether M365 or O365 products and services are still the best solution for your company on an annual basis. You are paying for them, so you want something in return. If you are no longer using a product or service, it is time to replace them with a solution that is more cost effective.

Microsoft 365 optimization is key! 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 or Microsoft 365 will result in both saving a lot of money and/or making optimal use of your active licenses within your current costs.

  • 1. Inventory of Microsoft contract
  • We start with an inventory of your current Microsoft contracts, including all related documents such as amendments, customer price lists and emails. Based on our findings, we create an overview of all the licenses and products your company has purchased.

  • 2. Create a usage summary of activated Cloud services
  • The next step in 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?

  • 3. Draw up a savings analysis
  • 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.

  • 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.
