PSP saved a large, global awarding body almost £300,000 per year during a recent infrastructure streamlining project.
The client - who has more than 100,000 members - was shocked by PSP's findings, including unused servers, and are now reaping major financial rewards.
The client was utilising our Outsourced IT Management services when our CTO (Chief Technical Officer) analysed their infrastructure and identified, and implemented, several tangible changes.
Our Findings and Solutions
As part of a review of the managed services and outsourced hosting, PSP identified several potential areas for cost savings from consolidation of server through to replacement of services. The process of identifying, assessing and implementing improvements led to a reduction in servers, license costs and services that required support. All of which contributed to a net saving for the client.
We also identified several outsourced services where the suppliers were underperforming and were not scrutinised or being held to account. Through increased management controls, PSP was able to drive improvements and increase value for money. By taking a strategic approach to resolving these findings, we’ve saved the not-for-profit client serious yearly costs and improved their organisational processes.
