5 Employees to Consider in Planning your TEM Strategy

Company bills and charges for the month that passed have just arrived. Everything looks business as usual until you hover over the section where it mentions the biggest charge among all the other amounts which reads, “Employees’ Technology Expenditure”. You were confused as to how in the world of business did this happen. Well, calme-toi, we all know that this line never appears on our company bills and charges. However, this amount is so spread out, that no one notices how much it contributes to the costs of a company. At the end of the day, employees’ interaction with technology has a risk that might cause your company a good amount of money.

The Benefits of Combining ITFM and TEM

Several years ago, I met with a CIO from a financial company. During our meeting, he told me that his organization was spending 160 million dollars in communications (IT, technology, and  telecom). Of that total, $16-20 million was spent with zero visibility. They knew they were spending the money, but they had no idea where it was going. They wanted more transparency on costs, and wanted control over their inventory. This is the type of problem that together, ITFM and TEM can help solve.  Combining TEM and ITFM forces is the 91 reason to go beyond telecom expense management.

Effectively identifying and retiring zero-usage devices and services is the 47th reason to go beyond TEM and manage the enterprise digital footprint. One of the biggest problems tackled by technology expense management is useless spending. In fact, bill shock often comes from too little usage, not too much. A big part of that is zero-usage devices or services, which occurs when employees do not use a device or a service at all, but their employer still pays for it.

IT Cost Optimization: How TEM Can Help You

on August 21, 2018 10:10 AM By | Caroline Le Brun | 0 Comments | Cost Transparency Cost Optimization
Working towards IT cost optimization is the 30th reason to go beyond TEM and manage the enterprise digital footprint. Optimization is a huge part of IT management. Actually, most practices in technology expense management are aimed at optimization in some way. For instance, invoice and contract management, inventory management, order and provisioning management, sourcing management, usage management, dispute management, and reporting as well as business intelligence are all examples of services that are not necessarily primarily focused on optimizing costs, but that still contribute to it in important ways.

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.
