NetPlus President and industry insiders at the TEMIA meeting discuss the importance of Telecom Expense Management solutions as enterprises transition to UC and SIP.

Organizations are now more reliant than ever on TEM solutions to manage large complex environments and do more with fewer resources.

NetPlus President Matt Lewis participated on a panel on March 25th at the annual Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA) meeting, moderated by Joe Basili, Managing Director of TEMIA. The panel session focused on what moves to UC, SIP and transitions from traditional phone service mean to enterprises and TEM Solutions Providers.

Key questions addressed included:

  •     Will TEM be less relevant to enterprises
  •     Is fixed mobile convergence growing
  •     How does this impact capital spending    
  •     What are the tax rate surprises for SIP

“As more and more organizations realize the cost savings from unified communication are greater than previously anticipated, the move to adopt has sped up. Organizations are now more reliant than ever on TEM solutions to manage large complex environments and do more with fewer resources. TEM providers need to evolve too and adapt their solutions to new VoIP, UC, and wireless technologies,” said Mr. Lewis about the panel session.
