To Self-Manage, or to Fully-Manage; that is the Question

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. In order to effectively decide on a vendor, you must first decide on what objectives you want to achieve. Is your focus inventory management, cost optimization or automating processes across all of your organization; or maybe it’s all of the above? 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. Understanding the difference between fully-managed and self-managed is key to getting the most out of a TEM solution.

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.

Cimpl currently serves a public Canadian insurance company that provides its services to over 3 million customers.
