Spend Intelligence: Enjoy the Ride!
Every product is a never-ending journey and Ivanti Neurons for Spend Intelligence is no exception to the rule. From the very beginning, our teams have set out to target core fundamental problems that we hear people in asset management struggling with on a day-to-day basis.
To imagine this on more metaphorical level, just think for a moment: you are going on a road trip and your next destination is an amazing seaside resort with fabulous weather with your every want and desire close at hand. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?
Well first you must get there, and that is going to take some time stuck in the car, possibly for several hours. Now imagine that car has some very standard, hard seats which are quite uncomfortable and only designed for short trips. Sure, that would be ok for the first 30-minute leg of the journey, but soon it will become a pain and make your journey far less enjoyable.
So now what if we stopped the car at a mechanic stop and swapped out those hard seats for some that are much better padded, aerated with a softer, more luxurious feel which are meant to keep you comfortable for the whole trip? Pretty nice huh? But you probably won’t notice the seats anymore—they are no longer a problem. You can get back to enjoying the ride all the way to that very appealing seaside destination.
So now you might be thinking, “What exactly is your point, Terry?”
It’s this: on our product journey with Ivanti Neurons for Spend Intelligence, we are heading to the happy destination that is simplified insights into software usage and spend that offers targeted and intelligent assistance to our customers to make the most impactful decisions at the right time (Which we are doing well already!). While focusing on the big things that lead us to that destination, we must not forget the smaller things that make the journey smoother for our customers as they come on the journey with us.
We realised that now was the right time to turn our attention back to quality of life within our application and just making things more comfortable. After listening to customer feedback, we decided that for our 2021.3 release of Ivanti Neurons for Spend Intelligence we should home in on the simple yet highly impactful capability of adding, editing and deleting singular license transaction entries within our software, which was previously only handled through our import interfaces.
What this means for our customers is that they can now:
- Add to the system day-by-day as software purchases are made, reducing the need for future bulk uploads.
- Correct mistakes that may have come from the vendor invoices or previous manual entry.
- Delete entries which should not be there or have been created in error one by one, rather than en masse.
These improvements don’t change what Ivanti Neurons for Spend Intelligence is or what our customers need it to do. The destination remains the same, but they say that getting there is half the fun.
