About AOTMP – Our Story2018-08-28T10:49:08+00:00


AOTMP began operations in 2003 after key management team members sold their telecom bill auditing company, which was the largest in the country at the time. Through bill auditing, these visionary leaders realized that although they were helping clients fix their telecom billing errors and recouping money, the same issues would arise over and over again; as they were simply finding the same money every few years and not correcting the root of the problem. Thus, the bill auditing company was sold, and AOTMP was born.

The key behind AOTMP is in the data collection from enterprise telecom environments all around the globe. By utilizing data collected from our database of over 100,000 companies, AOTMP has determined what works and what doesn’t work in any telecom environment.  That data is continually assembled into best practices and industry standards (best practices adopted by 75% of the organizations become industry standards), which have been assembled into AOTMP’s proprietary Efficiency First® Framework. This Framework is similar to a Lean Six Sigma, ISO or ITIL approach, but is specific to managing a telecom environment.

Today, working with enterprises, small to medium businesses, public sector organizations and their telecom vendors, AOTMP drives efficiency, performance and productivity to a new standard in fixed and mobile telecom environments while transforming this spend category from an operating expense into a strategic asset used to drive business results. AOTMP is the Authority on Telecom Management Practices.


Our mission is to drive adoption and utilization of industry standards and best practices through the Efficiency First® Framework methodology to create a high-performing telecom management ecosystem.
Our vision is to create a telecom management ecosystem where over 80% of all end-user telecom environments around the globe are operating at 90% or greater efficiency, are Efficiency First® Certified, are supported by Efficiency First® Certified vendors, and are viewed by management as strategic assets that are used to drive business results.
The foundation of our company is the proprietary Efficiency First® Framework, a disciplined and best practice methodology to managing fixed and mobile telecom environments. Read more about the Efficiency First® Framework.
