Your Weekly Insights on How to Manage your Enterprise Digital Footprint.

To Self-Manage, or to Fully-Manage; that is the Question

When selecting a Telecom Expense Management (TEM) vendor, the process of evaluating solutions might not seem so complicated. Everyone is essentially selling the same product, right? Let’s rewind a minute, many providers say they offer Telecom Expense Management but what they do can vary in multiple ways, provide a variety of bundles or variations and flavours to the services you can sign up for. In order to effectively decide on a vendor, you must first decide on what objectives you want to achieve. Is your focus inventory management, cost optimization or automating processes across all of your organization; or maybe it’s all of the above? While one option may cost less the day you sign, what you are looking for are long-term results. Once you know what you want to achieve, you will need to figure out if you will need a Self-Managed or a Fully-Managed solution. Some vendors will make both options available with some variances. Understanding the difference between fully-managed and self-managed is key to getting the most out of a TEM solution.

Should your Telecom Expense Management Reports be doing more?

Typically, getting your hands on the reports you need in a timely manner, for a reasonable price, can be challenging. Many Telecom Expense Management (TEM) providers charge extra fees when clients request a report, due to the programming and customization involved to create a report in the backend of the software. Reports are a necessity for many businesses who need a clear-cut view of their data in a sensible way, and being subject to expensive charges is a common problem. Decision-makers who require very detailed reports in order to understand data properly can end up incurring costs and waiting around for long periods of time just to see your own data. “Only 55% of all telecom reporting generated today is considered standard, leaving a significant portion of reporting as ad-hoc.” – AOTMP, State of the Telecom Management Industry 2016.

How We Helped an Insurance Company Reduce IT and Telecom Costs

Cimpl currently serves a public Canadian insurance company that provides its services to over 3 million customers. With nearly 10,000 employees and about 1,200 departments, managing MACDs became quite a challenge. Before implementing Cimpl, the company’s IT executives kept track and managed over 18,000 assets and services manually, through multiple different systems and Excel sheets. In using several different systems to organize their assets, the company often lost track of where specific assets were, leaving them uncertain about what assets they actually owned. Finding invoices and billing anomalies became an impossible feat. At the same time, the company had several vendors to track and pay.

Cost Allocation for Telecommunications

on September 5, 2012 1:10 PM By | Patricia Turchyn | 0 Comments | Telecom Expense Management Cost Allocation TEM software Software
Now that you’ve chosen a telecommunications management software, someone will need to get into the nitty-gritty of your telecom inventory. One of the aspects that will have to be looked at, analysed and re-analysed is Cost Allocation. Not only will it have to be analysed from a telecom perspective, but from a finance perspective as well. Do we assign the cell phone (or phone line, or internet line, or circuit) to an employee? Or, do we assign it to a Department? Can an employee become the “owner” of a circuit or fibre optic line?
