Organizations that rely on subscription research information and SaaS solutions must manage myriad vendors, contracts, and users. Purchases are often made at the department level, making central oversight difficult, if not impossible. And even when contracts are approved and executed centrally, the sheer number and complexity of them poses management challenges, which are frequently addressed with laborious manual processes and by retrofitting applications intended for other purposes.
Could you be:
Paying for too many users?
Continuing subscriptions for people who have left your organization?
Overpaying for under-utilized contracts?
Exceeding your contract commitment and paying a penalty?
Paying for duplicate contracts?
Unintentionally auto-renewing subscriptions you no longer want?
Risking copyright and distribution rights violations?
