What Does TPG Add?
Save money, time, and effort with TEM services
Under the umbrella of telecom expense management are multiple separate processes, all of which work together to benefit your business and maximize savings. With TEM, you get auditing, optimization, change control, contract management, inventory management, help desk management, security, reporting and analysis, and invoice processing. Here’s a visual overview of TEM services, plus the added bonuses TPG brings to the table.
Some organizations believe it’s better to simply take care of expense management themselves, but this can be a costly mistake. While enterprises can get by without TEM, they’re often spending much more than they need to on telecom services.
And it’s not just money that enterprises are spending too much of–it’s also time, resources, and expertise.
Telecom Expense Management Cost Justification and Estimated ROI
Attempting to maintain and optimize telecom contracts and spending in-house requires IT employees to focus their time and efforts on telecom, when they could be driving profits and innovation in other areas.
Many companies know they’re spending too much on telecom, but still hesitate to invest in telecom expense management services. The idea of spending more on an area that’s already costing too much can seem risky.
So, what’s the ROI for companies that utilize TEM services? Let’s take a look at the breakdown in the chart below.
As you can see, there’s a clear argument for spending on TEM services. Not only does it provide direct savings on telecom, but it also creates opportunities for indirect savings and increased productivity among your IT employees, resulting in increased profits.
PR Newswire explains, “Savings from refunds and credits for billing errors can equate to up to 15%, reduction in future spending can total a maximum of 40% savings, while optimization activities can easily exceed 22%. While it must be said that much of this activity overlaps, and savings of up to three-quarters of current telecom spend is unattainable, it’s not uncommon for a comprehensive TEM program to reduce telecom expenses by millions of dollars of spend annually.”
Investing in telecom expense management services is the right choice for organizations like yours, but then the question arises of how to find the right TEM provider. The TEM procurement and RFP process is one that takes significant time and effort, and that’s where Technology Procurement Group can help. We’ll show you the most important distinctions between various providers, looking at price competition, geographical reach and coverage, and service quality (including consistency, reliability, and continued management efforts).
Through consulting, professional services, benchmarking, RFP development, process optimization, and carrier and tech migration, TPG will help you negotiate with telecom contracts and find the TEM provider that’s best equipped to earn you notable savings and an impressive ROI.
Enjoy a simplified purchasing process
Choosing between telecom expense management providers is a true challenge. With so many factors to consider and companies to compare, it’s difficult to identify the differentiators and determine which provider will most benefit your organization.
And in the past couple of years, mainly due to the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for TEM has grown exponentially and will continue to do so. As more and more employees began to work from home, we’ve seen increased usage of video, enterprise communications/collaboration, and IT cloud-based services. This has created new consumption patterns and new costs to consider. That’s where telecom expense management comes in to manage and optimize your telecom budget.
