TEM Managed Services take out the hassle

In the current economic climate and for years to come, business executives will remain concerned with managing costs, including runaway Telecom Expenses. Most organisations however don’t have the internal skilled resources waiting to launch a Telecom Expense Management initiative, necessary to contain telecom costs and keep the TEM processes going in a timely matter. Telecommunication expenses may represent 25% to 50% of ICT expenses, yet are escaping cost-containment initiatives due to the growing complexity of Telecom Services.
