Prioritize Renewals by Business Impact with a SaaS Renewal Calendar

SaaS renewal calendar in Zylo

Imagine you’re the director of procurement or software asset management at a rapidly growing enterprise. You oversee a diverse array of SaaS applications that are critical to your company’s operations.

With nearly 300 applications to manage and countless renewal dates looming, keeping track of everything soon becomes a logistical nightmare. Your spreadsheets are out of sync, contract data is missing, and you don’t have a complete list of all your apps. 

Portfolio size and spend

That’s because you don’t have a centralized system to organize and prioritize SaaS renewals. As a result, you risk missing critical renewal dates, which leads to costly automatic renewals and service disruptions.

Since you don’t have visibility into contract terms and usage data, rightsizing licenses and negotiating favorable terms becomes a daunting challenge. You’re at your wit’s end trying to stay on top of it all. 

It’s time to stop struggling to keep track of so many dates in spreadsheets. Instead, imagine your contract information consolidated into a single system. You have an interactive SaaS renewal calendar visualizing every dollar and renewal you oversee. As a result, it streamlines your renewal processes, improves your visibility, and reduces the risk of oversights.

The Importance of Contract Data

Centralizing SaaS contracts is critical to successful renewals if you want a unified and organized approach to managing renewals. In fact, it’s impossible to create an accurate SaaS renewal calendar without it. Here are some of the benefits: 

  • Simplify contract management and reduce time searching for information.
  • Decrease manual errors, enhancing data accuracy.
  • Make quicker, more informed contract decisions.
  • Prevent costly oversight with clear visibility of renewal dates.
  • Avoid unnecessary expenses and negotiate better terms.
  • Improve data accessibility for comprehensive analytics.
  • Maintain regulatory compliance and provide a clear audit trail.

Without all the contract information at your fingertips, you and your team risk overlooking critical renewal dates and missing the chance to negotiate contractual terms. Once you can see your contract data all in one place, you can see renewal dates months in advance and plan exactly how you wish to handle them.

Make Better Renewal Decisions

Data and reporting are imperative for making a good decision – whether you should renew, how many licenses you need, and what a fair price is.

Zylo’s Renewal Calendar allows you to customize your view to do just that. For instance, you can look at it by contract owner, renewals over a certain spend threshold, or other dimensions. Use any reports or filters in Zylo to visualize your renewal data to align with your organization’s specific needs.

With this information, you can accurately forecast financial needs, identify opportunities for cost optimization, and negotiate more favorable terms with vendors once renewal rolls around. 

Additionally, customized views increase the efficiency and flexibility of planning renewals. It helps your team streamline renewal management, see key information at a glance, and make informed decisions swiftly.
