Check out our feature update video here!
New Cost Policy: over-licensed users
Reducing M365 costs is a big part of Rencore Governance, and we have an extensive library of policy templates, report templates, and dashboards to help you do just that! Our new Policy: locate over–licensed users helps you identify those who have multiple or duplicate licenses assigned. Identify those over-licensed users and start saving money today.
Environment Currency Choice
Staying on the topic of cost, we now make it easy for you to change the currency of your Rencore Governance environment. Simply selecting your preferred currency in general settings means you can display cost metrics across reports and dashboards in your preferred currency, allowing you to identify and communicate relevant cost-savings quickly.
Faster SharePoint & OneDrive file Scanning
We love to revisit previously released features and find ways to make them even more performant. On that note, we have found a way to increase the speed of SharePoint and OneDrive file scans. How? When Rencore Governance scans for OneDrive and SharePoint files, it quickly identifies unchanged items from the last scan and skips them. The result? Quicker scans!
Sneak Preview: New-look licensing tier
Now we have something extra special to show you. We are pleased to announce that we offer Rencore Governance in a new more flexible licensing model. What does this mean for our current and potential customers?
The new licensing tiers provide a feature-set that offers unrivalled value for all types of organizations – shapes and sizes – to better manage cloud collaboration.
Starting with the Essential Tier, you will get access to our deep service inventory, reports and dashboards and basic cloud maintenance actions – an easy start into your governance journey.
Moving on to the Professional Tier, you get everything you already know and love about Rencore governance: Deep service inventory, dynamic reports and dashboards, cloud maintenance, simple compliance monitoring, resource lifecycle management, advanced cost optimization, flexible automations, and more. With Professional you can take Rencore Governance to the next level and automate M365 governance at scale!
Lastly, in the not too-distant-future, we will add our new Enterprise Tier. This is where you will have access to all the above and the most upcoming, sought-after features to successfully control your M365 platform in all aspects, both proactively and throughout its lifecycle, on an enterprise scale. This will include new Teams and SharePoint provisioning tooling, Permission Reports and Access Reviews, Tenant Segmentation to simplify delegation of management tasks and much more!
