Cost Recovery and Value Enhancement Audit

Do you really know how much you are spending on your IT environment, and are you getting a financial return from that budget?

You may be happy with the costs on paper, but how do you know if you're getting a return from your IT spend?

  • Are you spending too much in one area, which could be better allocated and optimised for a greater return?
  • Are you spending too little in another, with knock effects leading to additional costs you may not have factored in?
  • Is money leaking out of your business due to inefficient processes, preventing you from being able to invest?

With QuoStar's Cost Recovery & Value Enhancement Audit, we will evaluate your spend in nine fundamental areas of your business.

We will uncover hidden costs, expose areas of lost value, and show you the risks that could have a significant financial impact.

We will also benchmark your IT spend against industry best practice and your peers so you know where you stand and if you can compete effectively.

At the end of the audit, you will receive a clear traffic light report stating where and how you can get increased value from your IT spend. This report is completely vendor, technology and supplier neutral. There is no obligation to use QuoStar for any recommended remedial actions. 

We're so confident we can make a difference so, as always, our Cost Recovery & Value Enhancement Audit is backed by our Outcome Assured™ guarantee.

If we don't find ways to make the audit cost neutral, then you only pay the difference.
