Help Focus Resources on Strategic Priorities by Reducing Software Maintenance Costs and Mitigating Risk
CFOs have long been the creators of cost structures and keepers of the checkbook, but the task of controlling costs has become increasingly complicated. Funding strategic priorities is even more difficult. Rising costs continue to outpace revenue for many companies, making it a challenge to sustain growth and profitability. IT budgets are strained with pressures to “keep the lights on” maintaining existing systems, leaving little budget to invest in growth initiatives and digital transformation. A contributing factor to a shrinking top line and declining profit margins.
Reduce ERP maintenance costs and preserve cash
CFOs and finance leaders are on the corporate front line, helping their companies navigate economic ups and downs. Rimini Street support services helps enterprises immediately save 50% on annual enterprise software maintenance fees and up to 90% on the total cost for software support. Rimini Street’s alternative enterprise software support solutions have helped clients save over $6B to date in software maintenance costs, improve their financial performance, survive challenging financial times, preserve growth opportunities, and prioritize resources for innovation and strategic initiatives that grow investor value.
Help maximize the lifespan and value of ERP investments
Drive operational improvements and mitigate risk at the company level by maximizing existing ERP investments and deferring costly, often risky, and unnecessary enterprise software upgrade and migration projects. Rimini Street replaces vendor enterprise software maintenance for applications and databases, and guarantees at least 15 years of support for current releases from the time you switch, enabling clients to achieve significant annual financial savings on typical software maintenance costs.
