Wireless devices and services are the fastest growing part of a company’s telecom expense. As wireless devices proliferate, many enterprises are seeking ways to reduce the rate of growth of their wireless spend, and to ensure that the services they are receiving are delivered at the lowest possible cost. This is where wireless cost savings programs come into play.
There are a variety of growing issues facing companies who try to track and control wireless spend. While it's obvious that controlling the cost per minute will save your organization money, there are other factors specific to wireless device and service management that the ideal optimization solution will address.
The organizational base of mobile users is growing and thus produces larger overall costs. However, to further complicate the issue, more features and functionality get bundled into wireless service leaving end-user organizations in a difficult situation in which the cost per wireless user is also expanding. These reasons are causing market leaders to explore Telecom Expense Management (TEM) solutions as well as wireless optimization exercises.
A one time or recurring wireless audit will force your organization to gather data surrounding wireless spend and the wireless optimization piece will provide as much as 40% savings on that spend.
