What We Faced


The client was frustrated with the quality of service provided by their current Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) which was exacerbated by recent billing inconsistencies and inaccuracies. ​

The client CFO desired visibility of spend on Azure and Microsoft 365 environments, as well as recommendations of potential cost savings opportunities – insights which their current CSP was not providing. ​

Typically, a Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) enables partners to directly manage their end-to-end Microsoft Cloud needs. CSPs in this program work with clients to:​

  • Provision, manage and support client’s Microsoft subscriptions​
  • Leverage efficiencies with monthly billing

Microsoft 365


What We Did


MRE provided an M365 and Azure license analysis to breakdown monthly costs and identify cost savings.​

The team compiled and reviewed past invoices for Azure and Office licensing to get insight into monthly spend breakdown and identify recommendations. ​

In addition, through MRE’s Microsoft Gold Partner status and relationship with the distributor, MRE was able to offer additional incentives that could be shared with the client.​

What We Delivered


MRE identified $50,000 in annual cost savings on licenses through discounts and promotions. ​

Through our license assessment our team was able to identify and implement the following:​

  • Provided $3K in immediate savings by changing CSP to MRE through a one-time promotion through our relationship with a distributor.
  • Recommended right sizing machines in Azure to reduce consumption and resources. ​
  • Automated tasks to shutdown non-critical virtual machines and resources during non-production hours to reduce overall spend.​
  • Implemented Audix 365, MRE’s proprietary tool, to provide analytics and insights within the Microsoft 365 environment.
