Managing the fixed and mobile telecom environment has never been more challenging as telecom departments across the globe are being challenged by senior management to reduce costs and become more efficient while delivering more value to the business. The latest telecom management thought leadership paper explores how this cost reduction objective spurs the immediate discussion of implementing a Telecom Expense Management (TEM), and why that may not be the entire solution.

In a recent AOTMP research study, optimizing telecom service cost was found to be the single most important objective for 2014, as 75% of those surveyed stated it was a priority and almost half of respondents stated that it was their top priority this year.

Implementing a TEM may be a great start for many organizations, however, Is TEM Dead? Telecom Expense Management: Only Part of the Solution explains how a true telecom management practice strategy, of which a traditional TEM provider may be a part, takes a holistic view of the environment and creates a telecom management practice that is considered a center of excellence.

"Although a traditional TEM solution will certainly save an organization money in the short-term, a sustainable telecom management practice looks at all areas that impact performance, productivity, best practices and return on investment," states Tim Lybrook, CEO. "By addressing inefficiencies in the focus areas of people, processes, technology, services and costs, an organization can truly turn their telecom cost center from a business enabler into a business accelerator."
