Ever wondered what wireline expense management can do for your business? We’re going to explore the answer to this question but before we can do that, I’ll first help you better understand what wireline expense management is.

Wireline” refers to the services or assets that functions using a land line.  So using: internet, PBX, Routers, circuits and etc. counts as a wireline services or assets.  Let’s get back to our initial question, (what can wireline expense management do for your business?) wireline expense management enables businesses to be aware of the usage and cost of their wireline assets/services so that they can save time and money by accurately managing its asset/service inventory.  Ultimately, businesses are given detailed knowledge of their consumption which gives them more control over how they spend.  With knowledge comes power; we empower our customers to identify areas where spending is unnecessary which gives greater control and cost savings. 

Organizations often have services across different providers which can be a headache to keep track of because data needs to be fetched in various areas before it can be collated into a report. It’s time consuming to search for the data through various mediums and to keep track of each change that needs to be made.  It is also cumbersome to monitor the impact of cost on deploying initiatives from legacy to UC (Unified Communication) when there are so many different factors to consider.   

Cimpl addresses these challenges by providing an easy way to manage wireline expenses by centralizing services across all providers, tracking changes and monitoring impacts of IT deployment initiatives.  Moreover, Cimpl provides a means for customers to validate supplier invoices so that the organization is paying according to the negotiated contracts.

5 Pillars to Optimize Wireline Cost Savings

This principle entails following the frequency and duration that employees access various wireline assets.  This encourages employees to be mindful of the way that they use the resources at work. Tracking the employee’s digital trail keeps a log of the actions taken on assets across cost centers, stores, sites, departments and etc.  The data from multiple providers is centralized in one repository giving access to administrators to at-a-glance dashboards and reports that are automatically upgraded.
