Optimizing Microsoft Licensing: iuvo's $108K Annual Savings Solution

Most businesses that are dealing with the complexities of Microsoft licensing can attest to the confusion and frustration that managing licenses can cause. Unfortunately many businesses are unaware that they are overspending on their Microsoft Licenses, missing out on major opportunities to optimize and improve their budget. iuvo's License Optimization for Microsoft 365 has not only clarified the path for many but has also led to notable successes, including an annual savings of $108,000 for one company.  

Optimizing Microsoft 365 Licensing


You might assume that such significant overspending on licensing is an isolated incident, but in our experience, it's all too often a reality. As we continuously optimize Microsoft 365 licenses for our existing clients, it's become apparent to us that so many businesses, both large and small, are navigating Microsoft 365 licensing with little to no guidance. At iuvo we've always believed in the power of shared knowledge and the realization that so many businesses are overpaying, and not maximizing their ROI with Microsoft, has been a real wake-up call to the need for education on this probelm.   

While we're proactive in ensuring our current clients don't fall into these traps, we're equally passionate about educating and assisting the broader business community. Our intention in sharing these stories isn't just to highlight our solutions but to bring a pervasive problem to light in the hopes that businesses, armed with this knowledge, can make more informed decisions regaurding their Microsoft 365 licenses.  

Businesses that are aiming to navigate Microsoft licensing efficiently and effectively can enlist the help of a competent Cloud Service Provider (CSP) . There are plenty of low quality CSPs out there, but a proficient CSP should offer license procurement in addition to a holistic approach to license management that ensures businesses utilize the right licenses for their needs, preventing unnecessary expenditures. With Microsoft's continually evolving licensing models, a CSP's expertise is invaluable. They should provide you with timely updates, recommendations for optimization, and strategic insights. 


Overpaying on Microsoft 365 Licenses 

In 2023 we were approached by a company in need of our help, they were dealing with an unresponsive CSP and they were overpaying on Microsoft 365 licenses due to licensing errors made by their CSP. 

With our Microsoft expertise, we took a deep dive into the company's licensing and found some startling inefficiencies. They had 823 unused Office 365 E3 licenses and 1804 unnecessary Microsoft 365 Audio Conferencing licenses.

Our mission became clear: reduce the redundancies and streamline the licensing model. Through iuvo's License Optimization for Microsoft 365, we slashed their monthly bill and restored this company's confidence. Our quick and comprehensive solution (delivered in days) stood in stark contrast to the months of unsuccessful efforts with their previous CSP.  


Turning Microsoft 365 Licensing Overpayments into $108,000 Annual Savings  

The numbers speak for themselves. A monthly savings of $9,000 amounted to an annual reduction of $108,000. But we didn't stop there. We identified an additional potential annual savings of $247,000 through the implementation of iuvo's Modern Workplace platform, an innovative solution that seamlessly meshes an HR platform with Microsoft 365.
