Planning and strategizing with a clear outlook into the future is the 39th reason to go beyond TEM and manage the enterprise digital footprint.
When it comes to choosing the right telecom expense management vendor for your business, there are a lot of factors to keep in mind. Business needs are constantly changing and continuously growing with your organization. When making decisions revolving around TEM, and building an IT strategy, you want to know that your needs will be met. You want to know that your solution won’t hold you back, but will instead facilitate your progress.
It’s important to differentiate which solutions are capable of adapting to a changing environment, and which ones aren’t. On that note, some solutions will have lots of extra charges tacked onto upgrades and improvements, which will leave you with no choice but to dish out extra cash just to keep your TEM solution up to par. This can be a major challenge for you, as an IT manager, focused on innovating the company and bringing new things to the table. You need technology that can keep up, and the wrong decision can force you to choose between going way over your budget, or having an outdated solution.
Keep in mind what vendors include in their monthly fees, and what kind of improvements you can expect before having to pay extra. Having a fully rounded comprehension of the platform and the plans they have for the future will help you in your selection process. You’ll want to choose a vendor that’s future-oriented, focused on innovating and progressing with business needs. The key here is to choose a future-focused TEM, one that will be adaptive to your growth.
A good way to solve this issue is to look for technology expense management vendors that have solid plans for the future.
