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.

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.

Bringing the Value of IT to Light For the uninitiated, a bill of IT is a bill of materials which clearly and transparently explains the cost of IT services and devices in a way that’s easily understood by business end-users. If key decision-makers in a business don’t understand how technology gives an edge, then that’s wasted potential.

The Benefits of Multi-tenancy to Manage IT & Communication Expenses

The name Cimpl has brought a new wave of innovation in our organization. One of them being that our solution is now multi-tenant. Leveraging the SaaS trend of multi-tenancy is quite advantageous in the area of technology expense management for organisations to create operational efficiencies and optimize IT costs.

This differs from a single-tenant hosted solution, where the application is housed on a vendor’s server but the codebase is unique for each customer.” In this scenario, users have access to a single scalable platform and their sensitive information is containerized and not accessible by other users.
