Put in place in 2015 in order to make internet accessibility equal among all internet users, net neutrality sets a playing field for “open internet.” This law means that all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) must deliver web traffic, applications, and content equally. Among consumers and business alike, net neutrality has been seen as a form of protection against unjust barriers being put up across the internet. The principle of net neutrality is that everyone should be able to communicate freely online, with equal access to websites, and equal ability to put up content in front of the larger internet audience.

Every month, enterprises face invoices for every employee who holds a corporate liable mobile phone. Most businesses would agree, when it comes to travelling employees, that monthly invoice can get a lot scarier. Mobile roaming charges can quickly get out of hand, and often without employees even realizing just how far they’ve gone with their data. Mobile expenses can be a major hurdle for companies trying to maintain control over their costs.

Is Business Process Automation the Way to Go?

With little to no intervention, typical, mundane, everyday activities can take up huge chunks of the day across multiple departments. Repetitive tasks can become a setback for companies that are looking to get as much done as possible on any given day. These things need to be done, but they take buckets of precious work hours. Efficiency and increased productivity are common goals that businesses aim for, often on an ongoing basis. Managers search for wherever a process can be clipped or modified in order to stimulate growth. In order to get things done more efficiently and in a timely manner, processes and everyday tasks must be optimized.

Top 5 Dashboard Trends for Telecom Reporting

on October 25, 2017 8:30 AM By | Caroline Le Brun | 0 Comments | TEM software Reports Trends Centralize data
Businesses have expressed a need for data visualization since the beginning of data generation in enterprises. In order for executives and other decision makers to work effectively, understanding and viewing their data is an absolute must. There are many ways to go about visualizing data. The majority of enterprises generate lots of data, leaving them with hundreds and hundreds of documents filled with information to maintain. Having to skim through dozens of folders with various dates, to find that one Excel sheet you created on the company’s Return on Investment (ROI), for one of many services, can quickly become an obstacle.

How to Visualize and Centralize your Data

on October 11, 2017 5:00 PM By | Caroline Le Brun | 0 Comments | Cost Transparency Actionable data analytics Centralize data
    Many organizations find themselves having to pull or even wait for data from their Telecom Expense Management (TEM) vendor in order to obtain visual graphics outlining key data and information. Businesses will rely on Excel files and spreadsheets to get a visual handle on their data, which can be a long and tedious process. I’ve worked with pivot tables and macros in excel, and you never know when they will give up on you. Viewing data is one thing, but having security measures in place to keep data in the right hands within the company is also an area for concern. This issue often leads to data only being available to certain individuals, leaving others with no visibility of the data pertaining to them.
