It's common for organizations to use multiple software systems to handle certain tasks - whether it's for managing finances, customer relationships, operations, or marketing functions. However, it's also common for these systems to eventually overlap with each other, not integrate perfectly, and cause confusion amongst employees about which softwares are used when.
These scenarios are costly, both financially and from an efficiency standpoint. At Mectoi, we have Consolidation strategies to help reduce the dependency on unnecessary technologies, and give you clear paths to simplifying your ecosystem. We build risk and cost models that identify the long-term gains from minimizing the number of systems your company uses to help you executing in ultimately reducing your software footprint.
