About Applango

Increase your effectiveness through high CRM adoption rates and increasing employee compliance to company business processes.

Our Company

Applango sets out to allow for transparency in organizations. As software tools are increasingly online, organizations too often are spending money on software that doesn’t include comprehensive management tools. IT, sales, and business managers are unsure of who is following company process, whether the software tools are helping their organizations, or even whether the software licenses are being used at all.

At Applango we are committed to helping our customers perform better through tools that allow insight into usage of SaaS. As IT professionals ourselves, we know the frustration of spending IT budgets without being able to be fully accountable for the adoption rates of our employees.

We self-certify compliance with:

Applango was founded in 2012 and has been providing its services to a variety of companies, including those in the Fortune 500. It’s gratifying to hear from customers that they were able to realize ROI within weeks or even days in some cases. Knowing we are providing true value is what inspires us and is the foundation for our success.

In 2015, we launch our Salesforce application.  In 2017 we expect to expand our services and analytical capabilities to include usage information from other popular SaaS applications like Box, Workday and Google Apps. Already, companies that heavily leverage SaaS are turning to Applango to gain a greater understanding of their SaaS usage.
