Creating IT Cost Transparency? Is it the Right Option?
Have you ever dreamed to know the exact cost of any single employee to your organization? Well, it used to be simple. I mean, before. It was just about invoice discrepancies, it needed to be verified and companies wanted to know what they owned telecom wise. For many years, many companies addressed exactly that. Though it was a great starting point, as time went on, companies started to look for more. And so did we.
What can Cimpl do to improve your organization? This simple question has driven us in improving our software to better help our customers “cut costs”.
Cut cost? Alright
What I realized in talking to the “bleeding edge” of the industry is that invoice cost cutting is merely a pillar in a completely automated process and that in automation there lies not only savings but process improvements that just can’t be realized through the old “manual” way.
A company’s largest investment is in its employees, so why would we not protect this investment? Why would we not create clarity and awareness when employees are exceeding budgeted costs? Why would we not let every manager view each employee’s usage trends and costs at any given time as well as give users the visibility and understand their costs in the organization? It should be automated!
Bold, even shocking – beyond telecom, employees have laptops, desktops, VPN tokens, air cards, printers, desk phones, tablets, software licenses… and these all cost valuable money! Crazier, these cost even more when the employee leaves and all of these assets are left unattended or get lost.
Here’s my little secret:
Yes you can exactly know how much any employee costs
Traditionally, assets have all been managed through different systems. Well, guess what? They don’t have to be anymore! It’s what I like to call the intersection where IT Cost Transparency meets inventory management. Cimpl, our new software platform brings together actionable real-time IT and Telecom data. Beyond telecom expense management, Cimpl is the most accurate and concise way to get information on every single technology asset across a company. Once all your available data is centralized in the system we can associate every single service or asset to an employee, hence reconcile inventory and contracts. From the Cimpl dashboard you can customize reports as needed and know exactly how much an employee costs to your organization.
Well if it used to be simple in the past, we can say, it is now cimpl again.
