Renewals Management & Optimization

Your software renewals shouldn't be just an admin exercise. They are an opportunity to review costs, evaluate new options and ensure that your continued investment drives the maximum value to the organization.

SHI's Renewals Management and Optimization services help put you in the driver's seat, gaining better control of agreements and ensuring that you get the very best contract terms possible. Between our licensing experts, SAM professionals and long-tail vendor management team, we have the data, knowledge and experience needed to ensure that renewals reflect your business needs.

Proactively track upcoming software maintenance and support renewals to right-size spend. By looking at the total across all your renewal spend, whether from SHI, other VARs and/or direct purchases, we help you take a strategic approach to renewals.
