Convergence Telecom Expense Management Software

Convergence SoftwareEnabling TEM for any size organization

Telecom Expense Management has a different face in Europe than in the US.

US TEM solutions are invoice processing focused while European customers have a dramatic need for more visibility and analytic insight in their telecom inventory and expenses.

The European market is served by companies with a focus on the countries where they are headquartered, whereas US TEM providers have a more global view.

TEM initiatives in Europe are often fragmented across geographic areas, yet TEM initiatives at large, multinational and global companies require multilingual, multi-currency, multi-operator solutions.

According to Gartner’s most recent MarketScope, Business intelligence will be key to TEM's future. Most vendors offer their customers operational data presentment or reporting. Analytics however are increasingly important as they allow improving forecasts for spending on technology migrations, supporting sourcing strategies and negotiations with providers, handling price benchmarking and planning usage scenarios for enterprise telecom services.

Convergence has its roots in Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence and entered the TEM market years ago with a solution to analyze operator invoices.

This solution, by ongoing development by Convergence Analytics, a Convergence affiliated company has evolved to an operator grade business intelligence solution.

Leveraging the tens of millions of dollars invested in Rivermine’s software, Convergence integrates Rivermine’s software in TEMPOR Enterprise serving large and global organizations.

Convergence’s proprietary software complements Rivermine’s operational business process support functions with an invoice processing solution imperative to serve the EMEA market and with advanced analytics, making the integrated solution the most advanced internationally capable TEM solution available.

Technology enables TEM

There is no Telecom Expense Management initiative that can do without TEM Technology. Telecom products and services represent a mission-critical support function that will continue to grow more complex in terms of technology, functionality and pricing and require automated management. Telecom Expense Management technology delivers the information you need to manage your telecom spend and avoid unnecessary expenditures with integrated analysis of your inventory, equipment, contracts, vendors and billing. And as TEM has evolved far beyond just checking phone bills, technology becomes ever more important to support people and processes executing TEM business functions. Today, TEM Technology implies an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)-type integrated software application that delivers Total Telecom Service Lifecycle Management (TTSLM) for communications resources, a proactive method of managing the internal service delivery and service support processes of your organisation.
That’s why Convergence’s ERP level TEM solution is based on the technology of the world’s most famous provider of TEM technology, Rivermine Software, the result of tens of millions of dollars in development investment. Convergence’s proprietary software enhances and complements Rivermine to address the specific needs of the EMEA market and a geographically dispersed user community. The Convergence TEMPOR and TEMPOR Enterprise portal enable collaboration across geographies, customer teams, telecom suppliers and the Convergence Managed and Professional Services specialists. BillIntelligence normalises, translates and enriches incomplete billing data and TEMExpert Business Intelligence provides dynamic web analytics down to the call detail record level.
