Software usage analytics is a fast-growing space. As software companies evolve their business models, understanding product usage is a critical success factor. As highlighted in the Flexera Monetization Monitor: Usage Management and Insights, companies that understand usage are more confident that their price is aligned with value, but only 35% of companies can gather product usage data very well with on-premises software companies lagging further behind. With the acquisition of Revulytics, Flexera continues to expand its software monetization platform giving organizations more insight into the actual use of their products. Enhanced capabilities include compliance data analytics, user behavior and telemetry, and in-app messaging, providing software companies with the intelligence to make better pricing, compliance, roadmap and strategy decisions. Revulytics, based in Waltham, Massachusetts, adds several core solutions to Flexera’s existing monetization offerings, including: • Compliance Intelligence – Usage Analytics for Compliance Teams: Actionable insights into where pirated versions of software are being used, including data analytics with the scope, value and type of infringement. This enables compliance and audit teams to generate new license revenue from existing and prospective customers. • Usage Intelligence – Usage Analytics for Product Teams: In-depth insights on feature usage, analysis of customer behavior, and dashboards with install base analytics and telemetry. This helps drive roadmap and pricing decisions, identifies cross-sell and upsell opportunities, and identifies strong customer advocates. Executive Commentary “Software monetization is more than licensing and enforcement; it’s also about understanding actual product usage. This insight enables product teams to make better, data-driven decisions and gives compliance teams the actionable data they need to generate revenue from unlicensed use,” said SVP and General Manager of Flexera’s Supplier Division. Flexera is already recognized by Frost & Sullivan and IDC for its software monetization platform and usage analytics capabilities. With the incredible people and products at Revulytics, we are expanding our offering to provide software and technology companies with even more insights to build and implement their digital business models.” For any queries, Please write to 3 Key Financial Highlights

REACH allows organizations to easily provide non-employee travelers with a mobile app-based solution which makes it simple to verify policy compliance, and capture and submit travel expenses in real time.Non-employee groups, such as job candidates, external consultants and vendors, have long presented a challenge for processing one-off or infrequent travel expenses, as there was no simple way for them to submit receipts for reimbursement and no efficient way for organizations to process them. As a result, finance teams have been forced to use non-standard, time-consuming and manual workflows to reimburse these travelers. This has required them to set up one-time vendor payments in the GL system, and also introduced unnecessary risk of expense fraud and manual re-keying errors. Organizations can invite external travelers to use REACH via a single, company-branded email. In addition, HR teams can sync REACH with their applicant tracking solutions, which can then automatically invite candidates to download and use the solution as soon as an on-site interview is scheduled. Travelers can then download and then sign into the mobile app or web-based UI. Travelers can then submit receipt images for both flight and hotel bookings, and incidentals directly through the app, where they can be immediately routed for approval using REACH’s real-time approval workflows. This allows travelers to be reimbursed the day after expense approval. Organizations can further improve the traveler experience by combining REACH with employer-paid Emburse cards, to eliminate the need for out-of-pocket spend.

  62. Customer Success Updates IT Shades Engage & Enable Piriou Expects to Double Revenues Following Digital Overhaul For any queries, Please write to 54 Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, announced French shipbuilder Piriou has chosen Infor LN software to help transform its global production, repair, and maintenance operations. Piriou, which builds mid-sized boats for private and public use, military and commercial fishing, has decided to implement a modern enterprise resource planning software system in a quest to double its revenues over the next five years. Previously, Piriou used an AS/400-based ERP system that offered limited functionalities, only supported the French language and was not user friendly. This inhibited Piriou’s growing number of production and servicing operations users at its shipyards in Africa and Vietnam. After a thorough review of eight vendors including IFS, Microsoft and SAP, Piriou chose Infor LN, supported by French systems integrator Hélyad. Using Infor LN, Piriou expects to increase its production volume by better optimizing its production and giving users direct visibility to component parts ordering. This will be particularly beneficial to system users in Vietnam, who are faced with increasing complexity when ordering parts through various layers of suppliers or intermediaries, which currently hampers visibility and speed. Infor LN is ideally suited to Piriou’s complex ordering, production and supply chain processes. Piriou holds no product stocks; it builds ships to customers’ unique requirements. Some designs take up to four years to fully scope and test to a customer’s requirements. Description
