Austin, We Have A Problem...

"How did we end up with more licenses than people?"

"Why do 3 former employees still have access to our file share?"

"How much are we spending on all of this SaaS?"

Those were the questions that were muttered out loud as he combed through accounting records. No single item was a problem but all together they became unmanageable.

The first attempt at solving the problem was an Excel spreadsheet, then a calendar, and then a database. It was clear that spreadsheets and calendars just wouldn't be good enough to get a handle on all of these different vendors, users, and contracts.

"Surely somebody has solved this. We can't be the first company to have this problem. There must be a better way!" he said.

But there wasn't a better way, so Meta SaaS was created to build one.
