Gain visibility over SaaS spend
Airmeet's rocketship growth from a small team of 10 to a team of 200 employees brought unique challenges. There was a lack of transparency in SaaS usage, procurements took 3 months to complete, and auto-renewals were paid through a credit card.
SaaS became Airmeet's top 3 expenses and they found it difficult to negotiate with every vendor separately. SaaS expenses were left unmonitored, which meant there was very little opportunity to save money on procurements.
Centralized Visibility over SaaS
After Airmeet's SaaS usage grew to 100+ tools, Naga Subramanya, the CFO at Airmeet, started using Spendflo to centralize the SaaS procurement process.
Saving time with Assisted Purchasing
The Spendflo team renegotiated all Airmeet's contracts over the next two months and made new procurements. Today, Airmeet only signs contracts and makes payments while the Spendflo team does all their renewals and new procurements.
"We've done almost 50 procurements in the last two months, which is phenomenal because even if I had to spend just 20 minutes per contract, it's a 1000 minutes saved. Spendflo enabled some of those procurements within 2-3 days with a 40-50% discounts from the first quote.", - Naga Subramanya BB, CFO, Airmeet
With the help of Spendflo, Naga and the team were able to save on their SaaS expense and gain visibility over the SaaS stack. Spendflo helped Airmeet realize significant savings and saved time on their renewals with a dedicated buyer team. After using Spendflo, Airmeet's procurements now happen 3X faster, and the company saves significantly on its SaaS expenses.
