How can housing associations use Phoenix Software?

Phoenix Software can help your housing association develop efficient and cost-effective software licensing strategies during times of change. Utilising the Phoenix Software Optimisation Service (Phoenix SOS), can help you develop a vision of your current and future software licensing requirements and maximise the value of your software estate – all while saving money. Phoenix Software can work in partnership with your organisation to:

  • understand current licence entitlements and offer a range of licence entitlement services ranging from a full software audit to a licence roadmap
  • identify a long-term implementation strategy, including potential growth and decline
  • give expert advice on how to licence a virtualised environment correctly, on both server and desktop
  • conduct complex cost modelling which will provide definitive long-term costs for your Microsoft licensing strategy
  • create a detailed strategy report that will analyse each option for benefits and risks, making recommendations for a solution which contributes to any business case justification
  • make recommendations for, or even carry out, vendor negotiations on your behalf
  • produce a management presentation pack summarising the analysis and findings that you can then use to present to senior executives within your organisation.

With proven savings of between 10 and 30% on your average annual software spend, contact a member of the Phoenix Software Housing Team today: 01904 562 200, info@phoenixs.co.uk.
