Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
The Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA), the authoritative voice for Telecommunications Management, Telecom Expense Management (TEM), Wireless Expense Management (WEM), Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Solutions Providers in related areas, announces a webinar titled Telecommunications Expense Management – Five Questions You Should be Asking. Managers who need to control costs for managing mobile and fixed expenses should register for this free webinar.
Jeff Poirior, president and chief operating officer of Valicom, a TEMIA member and co-presenter of the upcoming webinar, points out “We really want to shake up the industry by forcing people to look at telecommunications management with fresh eyes. While some firms have yet to implement a strong TEM program, others have one in place but may not know what they THINK they know about its effectiveness. These questions are designed to dig deep into your processes, your environment, your management style and really make you think about whether you are doing it right or not.”
Lacinda Athen, marketing manager at Valicom and co-presenter of the webinar, continues “TEM is a mature industry, but that doesn’t mean everyone knows all the best practices and can see all the angles. Being in the business for 21 years, we designed the questions to illustrate the various facets of a well oiled, cost-effective telecom management program. The hope is that they will allow executives to check in, and make sure they are covering all their bases.”
“This upcoming webcast will focus on fulfilling TEMIA's central mission of promoting the value of telecom expense management through education and marketing,” stated Joe Basili, managing director for TEMIA. “TEMIA member companies are well positioned to address best practices, performance metrics, open industry standards, and Key Performance Indicators. Member companies are able to draw on experiences managing over $61 billion in telecom expenses on behalf of clients,” he added.
