On August 22th, 2019 it was announced that Cimpl is now part of Upland Software. This was a strategic move to create a new, stronger, solution suite in the Project and IT Financial Management space.
It cannot be overstated that this is a game-changer for Cimpl, but also for the TEM industry. We are now the first company to offer a full solution suite around IT & telecom expense management, project management, and IT resource management.
Together, it represents over $7 Billion USD in IT & Telecom Spend, 10.5 million assets and services, and over 1 million IT-related projects. Incredible, but still a fraction of our potential.
What does it mean for Cimpl Customers?
Cimpl will continue to exist as Upland Cimpl. Our colors, website and logo will eventually change, but our heart and soul will remain grounded in our culture. This will give us the fuel needed to continue to thrive and offer world-class products and services. In the coming year, you will see us change by adding resources, new capabilities and solutions with the goal of helping companies take back control of their Enterprise Digital Footprint, along with IT costs and usage, project management as well as resource & knowledge management.
We are embarking on the next chapter of Cimpl. A chapter that starts where we are today, but as we roll in solutions from Upland, will help us scale to our full potential.
What is that potential? While Cimpl continues to focus on helping customers manage their Enterprise Digital Footprint, I believe our mission got bigger, much bigger. That is to help companies manage, see and optimize the over $3 Trillion dollars in IT spend annually.
This is what I am calling the “$3 Trillion Dollar Problem” and will be the focus of the combined group of companies as we look to add additional visibility on all things IT. It’s a huge goal, but I don’t get out of bed for anything less.
I want to take a moment to thank all our customers, partners and employees who made Cimpl what it is today. Your engagement, encouragement and cheers have kept us going. I am extremely proud of what we built together. It’s this foundation I look forward to bringing into the future, working with all of you, to continue managing the Enterprise Digital Footprint and the $3 Trillion Dollar Problem.
It’s no secret that for businesses to compete, they must invest in technology. At no point in our history has the speed of technological adoption been so fast, so expensive, and so dramatic to our company’s very survival. The winners and loser of this modern economy are often those that innovate and evolve the fastest.
Digital Enterprises will continue to add and optimize unified communications, mobile, SaaS applications, and IoT technologies well into the future. However, in this mad rush to innovate and transform their business, the controls are overlooked, security ignored, rogue end-user behavior tolerated, and cost overruns the norm.
Cimpl has dedicated ourselves to solving these problems and lead the revolution in the management of the Enterprise Digital Footprint (EDF). The EDF is our vision of how modern, flexible IT asset and expense management should work for the Digital Enterprise by helping companies answer some basic questions about their technology expenses. “What do people have?” “What does it cost?” & “Do they still need it?”
These questions have led us to develop the Cimpl Platform and our Managed Services around 5 key principals:
Using these principals, Cimpl is helping to free companies of their dependence on manual processes by empowering end-users with the information they want, while ensuring companies have the controls they require.
Cimpl is leading the Enterprise Digital Footprint revolution by equiping enterprises with the platform they need to manage the cost and usage from their telecom, IT, IoT and cloud inventory. Here is what some of our clients have to say about using our platform and services.
