CAA Partners with Tracker Networks to Track and Save on IT Costs
In today’s cost conscious and competitive business environment, innovation and automation are essential to delivering better technology services to users while lowering costs. This challenge has never been greater for technology and finance executives with the proliferation of offsite hosting, the use of personal devices in the workplace and the rising costs of support.
Tracker Networks Inc. is pleased to announce today that CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO) has signed on as a customer for the IT Tracker system and mobile application to track CAA SCO’s IT costs, equipment, software and services contracts. CAA SCO will also leverage the IT Tracker market database of over 35 million items to benchmark its costs and IT performance against the market.
“CAA SCO is an innovative and forward-thinking organization,” said Kin Lee-Yow, Vice President Information Technology, CAA South Central Ontario. “To support our growth, we are making improvements in the way we manage IT and investing in technologies that will automate tracking, improve our visibility and get rid of manual effort. The IT Tracker system from Tracker Networks helps us to do this effectively.”
IT Tracker is a web-based software tool and mobile application that makes it easier for Finance and Technology executives to plan for and track all of their equipment, software, support agreements, telecom contracts, consultants, services and other expense areas.
Using analysis and confidential benchmarking against the proprietary Tracker Networks market database of over 35 million items and real-time prices, the system helps track and control IT costs and find ways to provide better service to business users and their customers.
“With all the investments we are making in IT, we need to be able to measure and validate our IT improvements. The IT Tracker system lets us do this by tracking our costs and letting us compare ourselves to real market data,” said Lee-Yow.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Kin and his team at CAA to find ways to increase IT effectiveness and lower costs,” said Roger Mahabir, Chairman and CEO of Tracker Networks. “Saving money for our customers and implementing innovative solutions are some of the key goals we strive for at Tracker Networks. Trying to be a step ahead with our products and services to meet our customers’ evolving needs, we put our customers’ success above everything else – when our clients win, as in this case with CAA’s IT team, we all succeed.”
