    The new SOA launched by TnT Expense Management will enable clients to access a detailed inventory of devices, company spend and carrier rate information in real-time and from any application or platform that they run internally. This service is no additional charge for TnT Expense Management clients and will alleviate the pain of manually pulling data from multiple systems. International clients will also be able to generate reports and pull necessary information about their offices around the world, in their respective languages. Managing network telecom and IT expenses across international business units presents a growing challenge for companies, resulting in the growth of the global management segment for TEM providers. TnT Expense Management is continually improving upon its full service TEM offerings to provide seamless management for national and international clients and enable centralized management of expenses.

"TnT Expense Management has always been ahead of the curve in providing the most in-depth reporting in the industry and providing access to this information through single sign-on integration," said Michael Bodetti, president and CEO of TnT Expense Management. "This new technology allows us to go one step further and provide customized data for each client through their own applications. TnT Expense Management will continue to maintain the most detailed, up-to-date inventory and clients will now be able to utilize this information as necessary through a familiar system."

Sample scenarios enabled with TnT Expense Management's new SOA include:

-- Ability for clients to approve payment of invoices audited and processed by TnT Expense Management through their own A/P system

-- Option for IT managers of International companies in any country to generate reports, in their own language and using their own applications, to determine the number of wireless devices and data circuits on-site at a location anywhere in the world

-- Utilize clients' own internal expense report program to evaluate total or itemized cell phone costs for employees - the application belongs to the client, but the data is being pulled in real-time from the TnT Expense Management Telebase system.

-- Ability to access real-time data versus cut and paste techniques to generate client based reports

-- Functionality of clients' current reporting platform can be used - an application can be set so that data is pulled from TnT Expense Management's Telebase system at predetermined times so clients' are sure they have the most current information.

-- A clients' procurement system can link to the TnT database to access current inventory and pricing information to be used for internal approvals or orders to vendors.

"This announcement of implementation of Service-Oriented Architecture is a smart move by TnT Expense Management that recognizes telecom expense management data needs to be more accessible and part of a bigger system to provide maximum impact to enterprises," said Joe Basili, vice president of research at AOTMP. AOTMP has found that the data behind enterprise telecom and IT expenses is the most powerful tool for making decisions in managing technology, growth, and budgeting.
