OPTIMISE SPEND AND MANAGE USERS
Understanding cost per user within Low, Medium or High usage profiles is key to managing, understanding and ultimately, driving spend down.
Our team, armed with market benchmark data, key metrics, proven best practices and a sophisticated reporting engine, are committed to delivering results to your business.
- Unlimited dashboards give you the ability to create and personalise your data the way you want it. Simply pin/unpin spend types or key data points or add filters to refine the data that supports your area of responsibility. The days of being overwhelmed by irrelevant or unnecessary data is over! ‘One size’ does not necessarily fit all.
- Create a dashboard or report and publish or share with colleagues.
- A single click on any one of the informational cards gives you a trend graph to easily identify patterns/spikes/decreases in spend.
- A double click gives you access to more detailed reports. Where additional columns are required, simply use the reports module to easily personalise the information. Schedule how often you would like to receive the report or allocate the report to be sent to selected users.
- Create, schedule, share or review reports for deep drill down analysis or diagnostics of potential problems. There is no limit to the number of reports. At JOLT we believe that our customers are uniquely positioned to determine the type of and number of reports required to get the job done.
- Refine the data or content of your dashboard(s) with easy-to-use filters. Simply add or delete applicable filters. Our filters are considered, dynamic and applicable to your environment because we understand that time is money. To that end our reports will not waste your time by yielding blank reports.
- Easily identify increases, decreases or no change in spend with our colour coded indicators.
THE BENEFITS OF MONTHLY AUDITS
- Audits confirm that you are not being overcharged.
- They identify hidden costs and billing errors.
- Ensure you are not being billed for lines that no longer exist or were cancelled.
