Customer case

DirSys integrated its accounting software for improved cost control

“We were shocked at how much we spent on SaaS.”

– Tobias Hjeltman , Business Area Manager at DirSys


16 employees

DirSys saved 20% of its costs by cancelling services they no longer use and getting rid of licenses for users that no longer should have access.



A couple of years ago, DirSys embarked on a growth journey that inflicted increased costs for digital services. The clear overview they get over costs through Substly results in better cost control, and the goal is to make another 10% in savings this year. "The trend analysis makes it easy to ensure that the trend is heading in the right direction," Tobias adds.

DirSys helps its customers make sound decisions within IT management and information security by acting independently and as strategic advisors for organisations that want to develop their operations with intelligent IT solutions.

“I almost choked on my morning coffee when I saw how much we spend on cloud services.”

A clear overview that creates value for the entire company

For DirSys, Substly has become a policy instrument that fills a need for which they lack a solution. It brings significant value to the management team as they can easily see forecasts and cost history. "Seeing cost and possible savings from a helicopter perspective means we don't have to compile everything in Excel and feel we might miss something." according to Tobias. 

“Substly has filled a need we have, for which we didn’t have a solution.”

Integrating their accounting software was the icing on the cake

DirSys thinks that Substly has a well-crafted interface and a short learning curve – it's quick to get started, easy to navigate, and brings an excellent overview of the statistics. "The real icing on the cake is how smooth Substly's integration with our accounting software makes tracking costs. The integration means we always have an updated and sorted view of which services we have, what we spend, and when our services are being renewed," Tobias concludes.
