CFO & Procurement

Get IT spending under control

Financial transparency 

As IT becomes a bigger and more complex part of business operations, balancing budget against value (and focusing spend on what really matters) has become a major challenge for CFOs. The assyst IT management solution helps you manage IT from a financial perspective by giving you total transparency and insight into where and how budget is spent—and how much business value it generates. 

Financial view of IT

IT consumes a sizeable chunk of the total enterprise budget. Knowing where your IT budget is spent is the first port of call for more effective budgeting. With a business-oriented view of IT services and the IT infrastructure, you can gain a better understanding of where to direct budget effectively to support better business operations and growth.

In a global organization it’s tough to maintain control of IT spending. Executives often use discretionary spending power to get their hands on the technology they need – bypassing the official procurement process and preventing full oversight. With the assyst service catalog you can centralize technology purchases and regain control.
