New York, NY — October 25, 2017 — Presidio, Inc. (NASDAQ:PSDO), With the changing IT landscape and the move to more software subscription, consumption models and Enterprise Agreements (EA), Presidio today announced the creation of a dedicated software practice under the leadership of Matt Rehm, Sr. Director of Software Solutions Practice focusing on subscription, lifecycle adoption services and consumption management.
“Presidio has been at the forefront of helping our clients with adoption and lifecycle services with our local value added engineering model offered globally. As the IT world transitions to a secure, software defined multi-cloud world led by Software Enterprise Agreements, we believe customers will want to work with local dedicated software solutions specialists who can help them transition, adopt and leverage their enterprise software agreements” said Vinu Thomas, CTO at Presidio. “Matt has been leading our efforts in this space by working closely with the teams to create value added offerings like Presidio Illuminate” Thomas added.
Presidio’s dedicated software practice has introduced a new suite of services to help organizations more easily assess, adopt and benefit from subscription-based software. The bundle, called Illuminate, expands Presidio’s rich history of software lifecycle advisory services. In addition, Presidio’s differentiation from our competition is that we wrap consumption and subscription management as an integral part of the solution.
“Illuminate’s greatest value is the simplicity,” said Matt Rehm, Director of Software Solutions. “In this era of subscription-based consumption, we’re making every step—from selecting the best solution to validating its ROI—easier than ever for our clients.”
Specifically, Illuminate includes expert consultation around enterprise agreements, lifecycle services, adoption services and customer support. Illuminate also features training components to ensure end users and the organization realize the full advantages of the selected software.
“Too often, organizations or their consultants try to force software products to fit their people and processes, when it should work in reverse,” said Rehm. “That leads to low adoption, dissatisfaction and a poor overall return on the investment. Illuminate takes a people-first approach, with clear plans of action to guide each customer through their software journey.”
During the selection process, Presidio’s trusted advisors work with clients to compare best-of-breed software options against numerous factors, including big-picture strategic goals, existing assets, employee skill sets, workflows and key performance indicators.
Among the pivotal steps in the adoption phase: building excitement among users, developing training materials, tracking effectiveness and providing resources to support the ongoing production environment.
With Presidio’s Cloud Concierge developed by Presidio’s Digital Solutions Group customers can also track their usage and consumption analytics for solutions like WEBEX. The group also excels at seamless API integration and modifying software solutions to meet specific customer needs.
Presidio’s clients benefit not only from identifying the best software for their objectives, but also from Presidio’s consultative guidance throughout the enterprise agreement. “We’re adding value long after the initial implementation,” said Rehm. “And when it’s time to renew, we help clients decide with confidence if they should stay the course or switch gears based on performance or financial goals. When it comes to making choices this important, there’s nothing like having the experts by your side.”
