Typically we can on-board all of your SaaS applications in an
hour of being on a call with you (as long as you have adequate permissions/credentials to your applications).

costs or if you are near a re-negotiation of a contract with
many inactive users.

In turn, this reduces license waste in order to maximize on the investment of your SaaS Applications.
While SaaSLicense does have some CASB-like features, it is not to be confused with a CASB. SaaSLicense solves for challenges around the entire process of cloud application license management. According to Gartner’s Market Guide for Cloud Office Management Tools, “Elements of cloud office management tools have some functional overlap with tools in related spaces, such as cloud access security brokers (CASB) and software asset management tools. Cloud office management tools will pursue differentiation by expanding to manage the day-to-day operations for multiple SaaS applications, allowing organizations to centrally manage an end user’s digital workspace.”
