“ CloudEagle’s AI platform streamlined our entire SaaS procurement process by centralizing all the vendor contracts in a single repository and sending timely renewal reminders, so we were not caught off guard. The platform analyzed the right number of licenses to buy, and their experienced SaaS buyers got us the best prices. We saved a ton of money and time.”

- Diego Coria, Finance Manager, Nowports


Key Highlights:

  • CloudEagle team provided Nowports visibility into all their SaaS contract and usage data so they were able to make the right decisions when it came to contract renewals
  • Timely alerts reminded them about contract renewals 90 days in advance so they never missed on renewal deadlines and were well prepared to negotiate with vendors
  • Armed with insights from our platform and benchmarking data, our experienced negotiators were able to get a 34% discount from a vendor where getting even a 10% discount was tough. 
  • Integration with advanced messaging channels helps the team keep track of procurement requests that originate from these channels as well


The finance team at Nowports was dealing with several renewals a week, which was hard to keep up with. Tracking this through emails and spreadsheets while trying to get 8-10 stakeholders across IT, Security, Legal, Finance, and Executives to approve the request was becoming unmanageable. 

On the other hand, purchase requestors did not have visibility into the approval process, and a few approvals were stuck without anyone looking into them for a couple of weeks. Sometimes, Finance teams would miss contract renewals and have to rush through last-minute approvals for fear of being locked out of apps. 

New application purchase requests were sent in emails and tracked on spreadsheets. The procurement team had no access to pricing benchmarks. Purchases were most often based on the list price, with no negotiations.

“We faced significant challenges in managing repetitive tasks manually. Sometimes, our teams missed the renewal deadline and the contract got auto-renewed, leading to unwanted spending.”

CloudEagle has more than 300 integrations with almost all financial and SSO systems. Using these connectors, Nowports was able to get a complete view of its SaaS stack within a few hours of onboarding. The platform combed through their finances and SSO transactions to form a list of SaaS products they ever paid for or their employees used.

We helped the Nowports team upload all the contracts from their various Google Drives, including the data for missing contracts, to the CloudEagle platform. Our team helped them get the missing contracts by contacting the vendors.

CloudEagle extracted all the metadata from the contracts, including the renewal dates, and organized them in a centralized dashboard for easy tracking. Integration with messaging channels enabled our platform to send renewal notifications and alerts 90 days before the deadline. The platform identified four project management tools and helped consolidate one, thereby getting better prices on one consolidated vendor.

CloudEagle streamlined its procurement process, so now employees can track their requests on the platform. CloudEagle’s SaaS buying experts worked as an extension of the Nowports team and, based on the insights from the platform, were able to provide detailed market research and get the best prices for the best product for Nowports. We also created a renewal calendar so the Nowports team can be ahead of contract renewals.

"We got complete visibility into our procurement process through automated workflows, while CloudEagle's SaaS buying experts handled vendor negotiations and purchased the right products at competitive prices.
