(PRWEB) October 12, 2011
The Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA), the authoritative voice for Telecom Expense Management TEM and Wireless Expense Management WEM, and Mobile Device Management MDM Solutions Providers welcomes three new members: Avotus, Calvi, and Revolve Mobile. These new additions come as TEMIA plans for a Boston meeting in November, and it begins a campaign to reach 50 member companies.
“Telecommunication is one of the elements of strategic importance to any organization. It is also one of the fastest growing areas of spend and it brings along quite complex processes. There is no doubt that transparency in telecommunication costs and processes will impact the bottom line,” said Leo van der Heijden, chief executive officer of Calvi. “In Europe telecom users and suppliers realize that gaining visibility is a joint responsibility. As a TEMIA member we want to contribute to this growing awareness in order to find the right harmony between telecom service providers and their corporate customers.”
"Members of TEMIA are deeply passionate about sustainability, integrity and reducing telecom expenditures optimally," commented, Suman Dutta, president of Revolve Mobile on their acceptance to TEMIA. "By joining TEMIA, Revolve Mobile, a leader in mobile device recycling and data security, aligns itself with the best and brightest providers within the TEM industry."
“We are pleased to join TEMIA to help promote the measureable, positive impact smart telecom expense management can have on a company's bottom line," said Sumer Shankardass, chief executive officer of Avotus. "The continued proliferation of new telecom technologies makes it difficult for companies to put in place the right telecom technologies, while predicting and controlling expenses globally. As a member of TEMIA, we are delighted to continue to promote the value of TEM as an indispensable management tool to help organizations implement the right technology while managing costs, even as the telecom landscape becomes increasingly sophisticated."
Joe Basili, TEMIA’s managing director added, “Each new TEMIA member makes us stronger and more relevant as we add firms with corporate headquarters around the globe including Canada, France, Netherlands, the United Kingdom and America. Basili added, “We are seeing more interest from current members, prospective new members and enterprises in Wireless Expense Management and Mobile Device Management. This creates opportunities for TEMIA to launch new educational webinars, case studies, best practices and other programs that focus on WEM and MDM.”
TEMIA’s November 2 Boston meeting will include a gathering of some of the best-known TEM Solution Providers as they exchange views on the future of TEM, Carrier Billing and International TEM. This is a unique opportunity for thought leaders to create a framework to address these issues as they build a positive future for the TEM, WEM and MDM marketplace. The Boston meeting coincides with a new campaign to reach 50 member companies and a dues reduction for TEMIA’s largest member companies.
The largest Telecom Expense Management (TEM) service providers founded TEMIA, the Telecom Expense Management Industry Association, in 2006. Since that time, TEMIA has grown to 38 members with international corporate headquarters managing over $36 billion of telecom and data spend.
TEMIA's mission is to raise awareness and knowledge of the values and benefits of Telecom Expense Management TEM, Wireless Expense Management WEM, and Mobile Device Management MDM solutions, to improve the quality and value of these solutions through the development and promotion of open industry standards, and industry knowledge among Solutions Providers, business partners, telecom service providers, and enterprise clients.
