The combination of Telapprise's proprietary methodologies and stringent controls with TeleBright's best-of-breed technology platform will offer organizations an integrated solution, giving IT managers and CFO's a range of TEM capabilities to help them maximize control, visibility and understanding of every critical resource across the entire expense lifecycle.
San José, CA (PRWEB) August 24, 2008
Telapprise today announced a strategic partnership with TeleBright, a company that has developed leading software solutions to support Telecom Expense Management (TEM). Telapprise will use the software platform to extend its own core management services, including Baseline, OptiMax, and OptiMax-Wireless.
Chet Thaker, TeleBright CEO, says, "We're excited by the strong working relationship we have with Telapprise. Our innovative technology platform aligns with Telapprise's mission of controlling costs and empowering organizations to automate tasks and streamline process workflows."
Marko Spremo, Vice President of Sales for Telapprise agrees. "Our partnership with TeleBright creates the potential for us to fundamentally improve the way that telecom expenses are managed," states Mr. Spremo. "The combination of Telapprise's proprietary methodologies and stringent controls with TeleBright's best-of-breed technology platform will offer organizations an integrated solution, giving IT managers and CFO's a range of TEM capabilities to help them maximize control, visibility and understanding of every critical resource across the entire expense lifecycle."
Under the terms of the partnership, TeleBright and Telapprise will work together to develop new solutions and upgrade technology with enhanced performance and functionality to provide telecom billing management, auditing, chargeback accounting, mobile device management, procurement, MACDS, change management and vendor contract management.
"Our two companies have a shared vision of protecting public, private and government organizations across the country from unnecessary telecom expenditures," adds Davin Lundy, Vice President of Client Services for Telapprise. "With TeleBright as our partner, we can make this vision a reality, significantly increasing our national presence and lowering the barriers for IT professionals to adopt proactive TEM practices that enable their organizations to monitor, control, and optimize these costs."
What Are the Benefits of TEM?
For most organizations, telecom expenses are out of control. Carriers today -- after decades of monopolies, deregulation of services, mergers and acquisitions -- are unable to provide companies with an accurate, readable telecom bill.
Telecom carriers cannot verify that their billing reflects the services a company has ordered. Nor can they reliably prove that the company is not being billed for disconnected services. And when it comes to contracts, it's not always in their best interest to give companies the lowest competitive rate possible. If an organization doesn't have time to analyze inventory and compare it to billing, they are probably overpaying for services.
But managing telecom services is a complex endeavor. It requires constant attention by qualified technical personnel who can perform systematic audits to identify cost exceptions and alert management. Telapprise TEM services, backed by a strong software platform, provide a fully integrated solution that automates telecommunication management to help organizations eliminate waste and optimize resources.
Developing software solutions since 1988, TeleBright offers an integrated cost and resource savings system for telecom, electricity, gas, and water utilities. The solution offers proactive notifications for efficiently managing across the entire enterprise. The flexible technology platform can support small to large businesses, as well as government clients. TeleBright is based in Rockville, Maryland.
