TEM InventoryCreate an accurate inventory as a solid TEM foundation

The foundation of a telecom expense management (TEM) program is an accurate telecommunications service inventory. The telecom inventory is the reference base for telecom management activities such as tracking moves, adds and changes, operator spending levels and network optimization.

You cannot manage what you don’t know exists. Therefore it is critical for large organizations to have a central repository of every circuit, service, router, PBX, mobile phone, order, invoice, card, mobile computer card, etc. It is also critical for the organization to know how that inventory is configured, what its purpose for existing is, and how it is related to all the other inventory elements.

Supported by an accurate inventory, a telecom expenses management program can be executed efficiently, providing easy reporting and analysis of inventory related information and producing maximum savings.

A
TEM platform specifically designed for such activities allows real time and repeated analytics to support the telecommunication group's efforts.

Convergence offers Professional Services to help you create a complete telecom inventory of telecom services, assets and contracts.

We consolidate information from your- and your operator’s databases and other available telecom data sources within your organization such as operator reports, invoices, customer service records, contracts, and automated tests. Where necessary we perform on-site inventory inspections.

B
uilding your inventory may also be the result of an inventory audit, similar to our TEMAudit service, with the additional advantage that while opportunities are identified and savings realized we also are building a robust operational inventory model.

The audit will surface carrier billing errors and other credits, and opportunities to optimize ongoing expenses - such as eliminating excessive inventory or recommending tariff plan optimizations.

Inventory building services are executed under both fee based and contingency fee based project assignments.

Standard inventory creating services offered are:

TEMInventory

To establish an accurate telecom infrastructure inventory and set the basis for a comprehensive TEM practice, the TEMInventory demarcation service captures accurate counts of locations, circuits, vendors, and equipment within an organization.

TEMFoundation

The TEMFoundation service consists of a consolidated fixed and mobile communications inventory creation paired with a comprehensive communications bill audit and optimization. Together these elements enable clients to realize significant, ongoing savings by identifying hidden waste and process inefficiencies and redundancies. The TEMFoundation service is also used to establish a baseline standard prior to entering into carrier contract negotiations. Designed as a virtually cost- and risk-free investment option, the two-part service applies cost savings realized through bill auditing and optimizations to offset the costs of building a comprehensive enterprise-wide communications inventory.
