TEMStrategyLet experts help you define your TEM Strategies

The pressure on organizations to better manage their telecom environment has only increased during recent years.

Telecom expenses typically rank in the top 5 among enterprise business expenses.

According to industry analysts Aberdeen Group, an average of 7 to 12% of telecom service charges are in error. Gartner has similar findings, stating that companies forfeit 10% or more by not auditing telecom invoices.

Large enterprises receive thousands of telecom invoices per year from ever more telecom suppliers. As demand for mobile services increases, the pressure also increases to contain mobile expenses. Analysts predict an increase in overall telecom expenses in organizations of 20% by 2012.

Gartner reports that through 2014 the vast majority - more than 80% - of corporations will spend at least 15% more than they should on mobile expenses during that time.

So you need a TEM Solution to tackle these risks and problems. But there are a lot of priorities to be set and decisions to be made on what type of TEM solution are right for your organization and how a roll-out should be planned for:

  • What are your business goals? Are saving expenses the first priority, or managing the telecom environment and inventory, or streamlining the procure-to-pay process or organizing software management and security for your Smartphones?
  • Is your organization ready to initiate a TEM project?
  • What kind of architecture is right for you: acquiring a system and software or outsourcing?
  • What are the technologies, aligned with your overall ICT strategy you want your TEM system to support?
  • What Professional Services will help you realize your objectives?
  • Who need to be the users for maximum efficiency? Is it ICT/Telecom, Procurement, Finance, HR or even all employees?
  • What change management to processes need to be planned for?
  • Geographic implications and management support and sponsorship issues.
  • ...

TEMStrategy Services help you to assess your TEM goals and objectives, documents your TEM strategic requirements, provides in advice on which architecture, technologies, functional requirements, service approach and operational processes are right for your organization. TEMStrategy services substantially reduce the time to define the roadmap to an organization’s TEM project. And with a clear understanding of discovered needs, you will be able to start on shorter notice and realize the expense reductions and process improvements earlier.

The results of a TEMStrategy assignment are clear and well documented recommendations and rationale to meet your TEM goals and objectives. You also will find out which TEM processes and tasks should remain internal to your organization and which ones should rather be outsourced, based on your organizational structure, ICT and BPO strategy, timeframe, available resources, and competencies.
