Should your Telecom Expense Management Reports be doing more?

on July 18, 2017 5:00 PM By | Caroline C. Le Brun | 0 Comments | Telecom Expense Management (TEM) TEM Software Reports
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.

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.

How to Get a Detailed View of IT Expenses – Think Bill of IT

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.

That’s why one of the critical functions of IT lies in communicating the value it brings using technology that business people can understand. And in comes the bill of IT to help with that task.

Brexit Crisis: Is It The Only IT Community Disrupter?

on July 26, 2016 3:00 PM By | Caroline Le Brun | 0 Comments | Telecom Expense Management (TEM) Save Money
As you may all know, on June 23, 2016 a referendum was held in the United Kingdom (UK) to decide whether it should remain in the European Union (EU).  The final decision for the referendum ended with the UK exiting the EU.  The UK is ranked 4th in the world’s global spending on IT.  If the UK decided not to use their resources on IT spending, it wouldn’t necessarily cause a global recession as they only contribute 5.3% to the world’s IT spend however, it would still cause some disruption.  The United States IT Spending accounts for 32.4% of the global spending on IT.  If the US were in a predicament that forced them to spend less on or even cut out IT spending altogether, it would cause greater concerns on a global level.  Regardless of the Consequently, the British Pound is at a 30 Year low against the US Dollar.
