Provance Technologies has added a “pay-as-you-go” option that allows customers to use its software for a monthly fee with no minimum term commitment.

Provance provides software that helps organizations manage relationships with consumers of the IT services they deliver. In particular, successful IT business relationship management is critical for two types of organizations: providers of managed or outsourced IT and telecom services, and corporate IT organizations that have adopted a shared services delivery model. With the new option, Provance customers can now allocate the cost of the solution as a small recurring operational expense rather than a major one-time capital investment.
