User and Team Insights Provide Unparalleled Visibility Into Application Usage and Value
PALO ALTO, Calif., July 28, 2020 – Productiv, the leading enterprise SaaS Management Platform, today announced the availability of in-depth insights that provide clarity on application usage down to the individual user and team level within an organization. These insights, which include the deepest data and analytics available in any SaaS Management Platform, enable enterprises to understand and measure which applications are being used, how they’re being used, and how the applications impact other employees, teams, and processes. With today’s announcement, enterprises can drive productivity and eliminate inefficiencies in a more strategic and data-driven way.
“SaaS Management focuses on understanding the business value delivered by applications, including unlocking the productivity of the people in your company, rather than just tracking your license counts,” said Jody Shapiro, co-founder and CEO, Productiv. “You can only achieve this when you have a clear picture of which applications are being used, and how they’re impacting workflows. Proactively looking beyond license management into actual SaaS usage unlocks productivity and also translates into cost savings and increased time efficiency.”
Companies are increasingly seeking visibility into how applications are being used across their business units. Team insights provide real-time data on activity and spend per application for a given team (such as sales, marketing, or business operations) and can be broken down by office location, geography, or other custom segments.
By understanding how teams are using applications, enterprises can pinpoint inefficiencies and decide where to run adoption programs to fuel productivity. This data also uncovers applications that aren’t providing value and can therefore be deprovisioned or canceled. When insights show that a particular team is doing very well, IT leaders can leverage Productiv to replicate that behavior across other business units.
User insights give enterprises a look into even more granular data at the user level. With this data, IT leaders get information on each employee’s applications, their activity and engagement within these applications, the type of license they have, and the spend that has been provisioned for each application. This enables a deeper understanding of the application stack for each user, including insights into business value delivered even at the most granular levels.
“Productiv gives us an easy-to-set-up, intuitive and visual, enterprise-grade pulse on our software landscape and adoption,” said Mike Hamilton, head of IT at Databricks. “Team- and user-level insights help us drive adoption of our top apps, automate repetitive tasks like license management, and partner with and counsel the rest of the business to guide and scale our SaaS strategy.”
