The Vendr alternative

The Vendr alternative for end-to-end software costs optimization

Negotiation services like Vendr may help with initial cost savings, but won’t help you with the other 90% of your software management.

Vendr won’t provide financial control, and won’t prevent employees from buying new tools on their own.

Cledara goes beyond initial savings: get a comprehensive picture of your stack, its usage and costs, automate your software day-to-day, and optimize for value across your software investments.

“We now know when contracts are ending, and can actively contact vendors to renegotiate before they charge us. We use Cledara’s insights to help negotiate and explore other options.”

Nathan Humphreys, Jiminny

“I love having the ability to give control to other department leads. It empowers them and takes so much off our plate. I know it’s secure and we can still control the spend.”

Medina Mammadova, Seatfrog

“We have increased visibility and increased control over everything, and that has enabled us to stay focused on growing what3words.”

Charlie Maynard, what3words

What is SaaS management and how do I know if I need it?

SaaS management is the process of managing the software tools and expenses in a company. 

It’s a relatively new term, born out of the rise of SaaS solutions. With new tools emerging daily and tech stacks growing out of control, companies are now seeing software as their second highest expense behind payroll and it comes with significant administrative overheads for Finance and IT teams managing the purchasing, payments and access. 

The goal of SaaS management is to bring this back under control by providing the tools to reduce spend, manage the purchasing and approvals and empower IT to manage access, compliance and shadow IT.
