There are numerous benefits associated with the Cloud, and yet, spiralling costs can outweigh these fast if billing isn’t managed effectively. Discover how Cloud Assure customers are transforming their cloud cost management and unlocking innovation.

A recent Flexera report into the state of the Cloud in 2020 revealed that executives estimate at least 30% of their cloud spend is wasted. This stat is hardly surprising when you consider the number of competing priorities your teams typically handle on a daily basis (besides billing).

The good news is with a trusted Google Cloud billing partner and cutting edge cloud cost management tools at your disposal, getting a handle on your cloud billing is well in reach. Read on to find out how.

Take control of spiralling cloud costs in an instant

Without a dedicated billing management service and intuitive tools to track spend, cloud wastage can easily slip under the radar. While taking your eyes off the ball short-term is unlikely to be disastrous for your business, if neglected for longer periods of time, it can become a drain on your resources (and budget) fast.

Exclusive to Appsbroker, Cloud Assure takes the burden of Google Cloud billing management away from your teams, so that they can focus on what matters the most.

With Cloud Assure, your organisation can enjoy consistent monthly billing for all Google Cloud instances from a single source, making it easier to predict and manage spend. Visibility on spend becomes a problem of the past, with analysis, forecasting and alerts all readily available through our intuitive GCP billing app.
