Sydney - June 28, 2016
ClearCost Software, an elite IT Financial Management (ITFM) solution provider headquartered in Sydney, has just announced a major expansion into the UK and US. Since 2001, ClearCost has been providing software and implementation consulting to help organisations manage the business of IT. With insight from ClearCost, executives can make informed financial decisions regarding their technical resources and investments.
“Following tremendous success in the Asia Pacific region, we are proud to make our solution available to organisations in Europe and the United States,” says Steve Middeldorp, Founder and CEO of ClearCost. “In order to instill proper ITFM or Service Business Management (SBM) principles, our consultants must fully understand the unique challenges of running an IT function. It was critical to have the right experts in place before we opened new offices. Simply installing software does not deliver the value we believe our customers deserve.”
Leading the European operation is Simon Ray, who brings over 25 years of operational service delivery and infrastructure experience from the banking and insurance sectors in both Australia and the UK.
Mark Mahre heads the US division, with over 23 years of experience in business process consulting, data centre strategy and enterprise-wide IT solutions.
“With the right senior executives in place, we look forward to helping transform the business view of IT within government, educational and commercial organisations,” says Middeldorp. “IT managers in all industries, regardless of their budget, will find value in what we do.”
Since many IT professionals are not as commercially aware as they could be, ITFM solutions like ClearCost provide the governance, transparency and simplicity to empower companies to manage the financial aspects of their IT environments. Today’s technical services demand sophisticated financial planning and assessment. The sheer complexity renders the spreadsheet approach to be inefficient and inaccurate.
“Using a purpose-built system to link the IT budget and actual spend with service usage provides clarity to an area often referred to as the ‘IT black hole,’” states Middeldorp. “We deliver full transparency to bridge the gap between accounting and operations data."
Top industry analysts affirm the need for ITFM and SBM disciplines is growing. With their industry experience and holistic approach, ClearCost Software is uniquely positioned to solve one of the major problems most companies face today.
