Immediately impact the bottom line with 50% savings on annual support fees

Save 50% on annual support fees and up to 90% on total support costs by switching from software vendor support. Rimini Street has helped clients reduce costs and save nearly $5B to date, enabling them to better focus resources on innovation and strategic initiatives that enhance competitive advantage and fuel growth.

Avoid expensive, disruptive, and low-value upgrades

Closing windows for software vendor full support and coercive vendor audits or "limited time" offers can force customers into performing costly upgrades and migrations to new platforms and releases simply to remain fully supported, resulting in costly budget expenditures, overuse of resources and time, and poor ROI. Rimini Street third-party support helps to reduce fees, preserve future flexibility, and extend the lifespan of current robust enterprise software releases without requiring any costly, labor-intensive upgrades or migrations.

Get support for customizations — at no extra charge

Software vendor standard enterprise application support programs don’t include support for the customizations that have become an integral part of clients' systems. Many may need to dedicate internal resources or hire expensive consultants to support customizations. Rimini Street supports mission-critical customizations as part of its award-winning support program—at no extra charge. Rimini Street engineers resolve issues and develop fixes that directly address customizations, and support for modified code allows the reallocation of maintenance staff and resources to revenue- or value-enhancing projects.

Eliminate inefficiencies and self-support costs

Avoid costs and budget for additional resources and headcount that can be required to deal with the inefficiencies of software vendor support. Save precious IT, people, and time required to assess, implement, and regression test bundles of patches just to get to the one needed. Internal support teams also no longer need to hunt for potential issue resolutions on software vendor support portals and online forums, nor will they be forced to replicate an issue in a vanilla environment. Dramatically cut costs and save time and IT resources for strategic initiatives with Rimini Street unified support services — personalized to fit client needs.
