Telesoft, trusted experts in fixed and mobile telecom expense management (TEM) software and services, today announced it has been selected by the State of Arizona to provide TEM software and services. Telesoft will manage more than $36 million in fixed telecom spend for the State, spanning 675 locations that are supplied by 46 vendors. In addition, Telesoft is also responsible for managing receipt and payment of the State’s 7,500 mobile devices accounting for more than $4 million in expenditure.
“State budgets are under immense scrutiny and pressures to reduce expenses are always present,” said Gary Hensley, Chief Networking Officer for the State of Arizona. “Given the size of expenditure and the complexity of invoices that we manage, having the Telesoft TEM platform and services will help us address these issues and keep our costs in check.”
As a leader in the TEM market, Telesoft has experience equipping IT and finance departments with simple, centralized solutions that reduce spending and maximize investments on fixed and mobile services and devices. The State of Arizona will utilize Telesoft for both its expertise in invoice processing software and services. These Telesoft solutions reduce telecom expenses by managing the entire lifecycle of an invoice from receipt through payment all while validating and disputing erroneous charges. This will allow the State to leverage the built-in reporting of the Telesoft Solution to create maximum visibility into their telecom expenses and make informed decisions.
In addition to the receipt and payment of invoices on behalf of the State, Telesoft will also directly invoice state agencies on behalf of the State for their use of telecom services. Telesoft will then collect payment from those agencies to ensure that each agency is responsible for their part of the State’s expenditures as a whole. This chargeback provides accountability for expenses across the organization and helps reduce overall telecom costs.
“Telesoft’s selection by the State of Arizona as their TEM provider is a testament to the value of TEM and the reliability of Telesoft products and services,” said Thierry Zerbib, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Telesoft. “We’re excited to undertake this project with the State and looking forward to providing them with the best expense management tools the industry has to offer.”
