Reduce acquisition costs. Vendor consolidation, volume licensing, software subscriptions and solution financing all offer potential financial benefits in software acquisition. Consolidating vendors can reduce overall licensing costs and streamline processes – and often as you concentrate your software investments on fewer vendors you will find opportunities to gain additional value through volume licensing. Software subscriptions offer an alternative way to acquire software – typically reducing upfront costs. And solution financing can help you free up cash flow and align payments to when you start realizing the benefits of your investment.
