You’re Overspending on Software/SaaS/Databases
Intensity Analytics has a featherlite app called TickStream® that accumulates data on Windows computers without human effort. Then, as instrumented in a secure web dashboard, it serves companies in their objectives of increasing revenue, reducing costs and finding new aspects of competitive advantage.

TickStream® measures all computer activity, both on- and off-web, including local or networked applications, whether they are commercial or homegrown. TickStream® is about not only measuring what a user is doing when, but the extent to which he/she is also doing other computing tasks at the same time. We call this Simultaneity & Fragmentation.

The TickStream® Ranked Use Report is a canned report with the purpose of helping organizations clip their software, SaaS and database license costs.

It’s a rare organization that is paying the right amount for software, SaaS platforms and databases that is actually needed and currently used by employees. It’s typical that organizations are over-paying by thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars per year, and the implementation of the featherlite TickStream® app on Windows computers, and a monthly review of what we call the “Ranked Use” report is a fast route to material savings.

Think about where your company might be on the continuum below, whereby deployment of the TickStream® Ranked Use Report might find savings per employee of just $10/month up to $100/month.

For just 50 employees, this is a savings of $6,000 to $60,000 per year. For 500 employees, the savings could be measured in millions of dollars per year -

Software / SaaS / database costs Overpaying by $10/mo per employee Overpaying by$50/mo per employee Overpaying by$100/mo per employee
50 employees $6,000 $30,000 $60,000
500 employees $60,000 $300,000 $600,000
5,000 employees $600,000 $3,000,000 $6,000,000

The TickStream® Ranked Use Report not only helps find savings you can achieve fast by right-sizing seat counts for software, SaaS platforms and paid databases, but it also gives management a very powerful tool to use in negotiating with salespeople from software, SaaS and database vendors.
