As the economies of both emerging and developed countries grow, the global demand for energy increases. In order to respond to the rising needs of our population for different energy sources, many energy companies decided to invest in expansion to meet this increasing demand. One of our clients, a global natural gas company who specializes in the creation and sales of equipment for processing and moving natural gas, is no exception.
They employ more than 3000 employees who are spread across 300 departments in order to meet the world's gigantic demand for energy. The company may just keep expanding...
So, they will likely get bigger. How will this change the way things work in the company?
Well, it is logical to think that the bigger a company is, the harder it will be to manage its assets, particularly its IT and telecom assets. After all, each department does have a different set of needs and expectations with respect to the technology it uses; there will be different sets of IT at play across different units. However, managing it all doesn’t always have to be hard. At the end of the day, the success of an organization comes down to the quality of its management.
The good news here is that no one has to be alone in addressing this challenging task. If they are equipped with the right tools and guided by expert advice, IT and telecom (technology) expense management (TEM) can be very easy.
How can TEM be easy?
Fortunately, the energy company realized it had shortcomings in its handling of TEM, and decided to change its situation by choosing Cimpl. They had clear objectives in mind: They wanted to uncover potential saving opportunities and also get more visibility in their overall telecom inventory. They chose to outsource the management of their telecom assets and services to our team of experts specialized in providing telecom managed services .
