Welcome to the New PyraCloud

You Asked, We Listened – Welcome to the New PyraCloud Menu

We are always working hard to improve the experience for our PyraCloud users, and we are very excited to announce that we have made some significant changes to the PyraCloud menu and navigation based on your feedback.

User Feedback

The PyraCloud User Experience lab conducted hundreds of interviews with users who provided feedback and participated in design sessions. We took on board all of your recommendations to simplify the menu and navigation structure within the platform and we hope you are as excited as we are with the results!

The Result – Our New Menu and UI

The result is a very clean menu with a reduced number of options, but ones focused on business outcomes. The new sections are divided into the most important aspects of your key tasks:

  • Buying new software
  • Analyzing your spending
  • Checking your inventory
  • Monitoring your SoftwareONE services

Buying New Software

We have grouped all of the features you need to manage your software transactions in the “Buy” section.

Clicking on “Buy” will open up the menu where you can then purchase CSP subscriptions, search for software products and services, see your favorites and shopping list, access all of your quotes and orders, view your shopping cart, set up purchase approval workflows and credit cards or view SPLA reports.

Analyzing your Spending

If you are looking to Analyze your software and cloud spend, you will find everything you need in the “Analyze” menu option. You can view your total software and cloud consumption or you can opt to view just your software assets, Azure, AWS or O365 consumption. You can set up budgets and alerts, view recommendations which can help you save costs and optimize your environment. You can access pre-defined reports or generate your own customized reports and setup chargebacks.
