TEM is still vital but we need to go beyond that and dig deeper to get the true benefits and efficiencies that customers are demanding

Telecommunications has been viewed traditionally as a cost center with organizations focused on cost reduction. At the IT Financial Management Association Conference NetPlus Director of Strategic Accounts Jim McDonald spoke on how to turn telecommunications into a center of excellence by improving processes, automating workflows, and gaining control and insight into inventory.

“Customers need more than just someone to do audits and process their invoices. They need complete control over their telecommunications environment. TEM is still vital but we need to go beyond that and dig deeper to get the true benefits and efficiencies that customers are demanding,” said McDonald.

The session was well received by audience members with much discussion on inventory management, workflow automation, and benefits of periodic telecom audits. McDonald addressed how an infrastructure audit can actually fund an organizations next telecommunications project.
