Rimini Street independent third-party support saves energy and utilities organizations 50% on annual software support fees and up to 90% on total maintenance costs. This helps protect margins, maximize the value of current systems, and free up funds for capital investment and investment in innovation to improve customer value.
Managing volatility and market shifts is critical for energy and utility providers, but when it comes to application support for core ERP software, instability can't be part of the equation. Rimini Street Support Services include a better enterprise software solutions model to help power client success. Unlike software vendor support, there are no forced upgrades to stay fully supported, and no incident escalations or delays. Rimini Street delivers integrated application management services and ERP support, and is the trusted, single-source partner of many in the energy and utilities industries.
Energy and utilities organizations face substantial challenges. They include changing competitive threats; complying with increased government, environmental, security, and safety regulations; and funding significant capital investment requirements on thinning profit margins — all while adapting to and driving new digital technologies. Maintaining the status quo is simply not an option. To survive and then thrive, energy and utilities organizations are leveraging third-party software support from Rimini Street, saving millions of dollars in ERP maintenance and enabling investment in more strategic initiatives. By optimizing enterprise software and support, they can focus on digital innovation, a key priority for success during continual industry volatility and market shifts.
