Both products offered vendor, subscription and inventory management software. INFOmatch became known as the flexible user-friendly option for simpler contractual relationships and FITS built a reputation as a data and reporting machine for larger, more complex environments.
Over the years, both products set new standards and pushed the boundaries to be the best in their class. They accumulated an impressive 80 developer years in functionality between them.
Fast forward to 2018 when the market dynamic shifted. TRG joined forces with Screen and became TRG Screen. With both spend management products under one roof, the company was well poised to dominate the market. The next logical step in this journey?
You’ve guessed it. Integration.
From domination to integration… and beyond
Our priority is to offer the best possible solution to meet our customers changing needs. But developing new features for two systems put a squeeze on our ability to keep up with our ambitions. By integrating these two industry-leading systems and focusing resources on a single solution, customers benefit from:
- The most advanced subscription spend management platform in the world
- Best-of-breed solution that combines the best of both worlds (FITS and INFOmatch)
- Much more than the sum of its parts with major new capabilities
- Accelerated development with new features released at a much faster pace
- Enterprise subscription spend management that is easier than ever before
The new system is called Optimize Spend and is the first to be launched on the new Optimize platform. It is more intuitive with a modernized UI while being based on mature, stable and secure existing technology.
Optimize Spend unlocks valuable insights, with personalized dashboards that bring your subscription spend to life with visual analytics, actionable insights and instant reporting.
Optimize Insights gives you an advanced understanding of your subscriptions so you can make smarter, insight driven decisions that will maximize the value of your subscriptions.
Why you need Optimize Spend
The volume, variety, format and sources of market data and other information services has exploded and evolved in recent years.
It can seem an impossible task to deliver the right combination of services to the business while reducing costs. Especially if you are lacking a single view of your entire subscription environment, and an easy way to generate reports.

It puts information on your vendors, contracts, products and services for every user in one place, giving you a single view of your entire inventory.
