Yesterday’s telecom expense management solutions are simply not appropriate for the fast-moving world of mobile technology.
Gaithersburg, MD (PRWEB) July 26, 2011
CCMI and Voice Report have just released a recording of the 60-minute webcast, “5 Steps to Successful Mobile Expense Management.” The webcast features a unique panel discussion format that explores the challenges enterprises face as they confront the proliferation of mobile devices and services and details a groundbreaking self-service approach from Xigo.
“Mobile devices play a crucial role in every facet of an enterprise’s business operations and are ‘must have’ productivity tools,” says Lane Cooper, editorial director of BizTechReports and webcast moderator. He adds, “It is vital that enterprises develop a mobile expense management strategy now since this challenge is not going away and will only grow larger and more complex in the coming years.”
Mobile expense management (MEM) was once considered a minor sub-set of larger enterprise-wide telecom expense management (TEM) solutions, but with 40% plus growth rates, MEM now has a more prominent place in a company’s overall telecommunications lifecycle management strategy. “Yesterday’s telecom expense management solutions are simply not appropriate for the fast-moving world of mobile technology,” says David Snow, CMO of Xigo. “Cloud-based solutions that can be rapidly deployed at a nominal (if any) upfront fee provide flexibility and adaptability – two key attributes of a successful solution – for mobile expense management.”
Typical TEM engagements take as long as 18 months before a return on investment (ROI) is realized … nearly the entire lifecycle of a mobile device. Webcast panelists David Snow and Mark Pownell, Xigo’s vice president of user experience, demonstrates how to implement a MEM-specific solution in minutes, along with instant spend analysis that enables enterprises to assess and leverage their mobility strategy for improved savings.
