Client Success Stories

Cost Savings and Extended Payment Terms

A Midwestern regional healthcare system had a large operational infrastructure support contract that was expiring and needed to be renewed. However, COVID-19 had severely impacted their revenues. Sirius provided a comprehensive solution consisting of cost savings combined with extended payment terms and 0% interest, so they could continue their coverage while spreading out payments over five years.

Volume Purchase Agreement Stretches Budget Further

A global retail chain spends millions of dollars every year on hardware, software and associated maintenance, but has historically leveraged multiple distributors. By consolidating their spend with Sirius, we were able to provide a volume purchase agreement (VPA) to increase their buying power and stretch their budget further. They were able to use the cost savings to fund several projects related to their adoption of cloud-based services.

Cost Effective, On-Demand Cloud Services

A client lost two key Amazon Web Services (AWS) engineers right before the pandemic. They were looking to hire replacements to help develop a key application in AWS, but with the pandemic they were not able to hire. Sirius was able to provide them with on-demand cloud services as part of our Cloud Transitional Services offering. The choice proved to be cost-effective enough that they plan to continue using Sirius’ cloud expertise even when they are able to hire again.

Optimize Your IT Staff and Portfolio

A leading nationwide retail chain had separate P&Ls for its ecommerce and brick-and-mortar businesses. Each business had its own IT staff and received IT support from a corporate shared service. The ecommerce business was struggling to meet revenue targets and retained Sirius to perform a cost-reduction evaluation. The engagement resulted in the recommended optimization of overall IT staff across the business, and optimization of the overall technology portfolio supported by the client’s staff.
