What is Telecom Expense Management?

TEM stands for telecom expense management, and the simplest definition of TEM is managing wireless and wireline services and asset expenses. It combines processes for IT and the finance departments of your organization, allowing them to support and acquire provision of all the corporate telecom assets, managing all of the third party services and contracts in the supply chain of your telecommunications.

The term Telecom Expense Management can make it seem like the service is only about managing telecommunication bills and contracts; however, it goes far beyond just billing systems. From asset inventory management to sourcing, inventory management, procurement, and more, TEM can help you reduce costs and risks.

Operating in today's business world requires a tremendous amount of technology – telephones, smartphones, laptops with cellular data, tablets, and more – and newer technology continually hits the market. The complexity in managing all of this, even in a small organization, can be a completely time consuming. And, as your business scales, so does the cost to manage all of the contracts, optimize the environment, audit, and negotiate. Telecom management is not at your business core strength, and the costs involved in having employees shoulder the burden is often more expensive than all the contracts and costs of your actual telecommunications. With Manage Mobility by Peak-Ryzex, it is at our core strength – outsourcing to us will allow your company to focus on what you do best while we help save your company time and money. Recent surveys and research show that companies who have a telecom expense management system save up to 22% over companies who do not. With billing errors averaging out to 5-12% of the overall telecom budget, audits from a team of professionals is just one way we save your entire organization money on your TEM budget. Even small errors in billing and invoicing each month can accrue significant costs and overages month-over-month from hundreds, if not thousands, of devices. From corporate-owned to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) equipment, having a system to manage all of your assets is a wise decision.

Manage Mobility by Peak-Ryzex gives you an all-in-one managed mobility platform, removing the hassle of managing multiple vendors and systems, and saving you both time and money.
