Strategic Blue simplify cloud procurement and save customers money on their cloud spend.

to suit their financial and contractual needs, helping to overcome cloud procurement barriers

and reducing cloud costs with on-going cost optimisation.


Commit Your Way

We use financial techniques to allow our customers to have customised commitments, meaning their discounts will be for durations that suit them rather than the standard one and three years from the cloud providers.


Pay Your Way


At Strategic Blue we understand that having flexibility to buy cloud the way you want can be key to your organisation's cloud strategy:


  • We can provide options to pay via invoice instead of credit card.
  • We can provide flattening of monthly invoices to stop high peaks impacting your cashflow.
  • We can let you pay in local currency.
  • Another way in which we can help our customers procure cloud, is providing the ability to purchase upfront credits helping customers who prefer to pay using an upfront fixed payment method. Alternatively, we can transform upfront payments to regular monthly payments.


Pay on your Terms

  • Access up to 120 days payment terms.
