Microsoft SPLA Audit Defense

Services Provider audit is a painful and frustrating experience. Our SPLA experts have defended clients in audits with up to $300M in claimed shortfalls. We apply our trusted methodology forged in battles so you can sail through the next audit or turn the tide in an ongoing one.

Microsoft Contract Negotiation Support

Microsoft dramatically transformed how its licensing agreements work in 2023. Our expert negotiators will guide you through the uncertain landscape, benchmark discounts, leverage new opportunities, and help you strike the best possible deal.

Microsoft 365 Planning and Optimisation

Microsoft 365 offers a range of bundled plans and individual components. It's easy to get lost in detail and overlook the value gap. We will assess and plan your requirements and benchmark the best suitable options to ensure that you only pay for what you need.

Microsoft Audit Defense

Microsoft may audit you at any time, and it's never the right time. There are unpredictable risks and disruptions. Our experts follow a tested and tried approach. We know from experience how auditors work, what they are looking for, and how to defend you in an audit with the best possible outcome.
