AOTMP White Paper Release – Assessing Hard Dollar Savings with Telecom Expense Management

INDIANAPOLIS, January 21, 2015—AOTMP is pleased to release Assessing Hard Dollar Savings with Telecom Expense Management (TEM), the most recent white paper in AOTMP’s popular Telecom Management Industry Thought Leadership Series.

Generating hard dollar savings is the primary objective of every telecom expense management (TEM) program (TEM savings, telecom savings); although other goals may be in place such as streamlining processes and workflow, improving telecom decision making and increasing policy compliance and enforcement, organizations implement TEM first and foremost to reduce costs.

According to a recent AOTMP research study, fixed TEM programs generate 7.7% in annual savings and mobile TEM programs generate 9.4% in annual savings, on average. This white paper serves to assess the hard dollar savings generated through fixed and mobile TEM programs and will benefit many different audiences. Organizations implementing a program can utilize the information for benchmarking purposes to measure current and future performance. Organizations considering a program deployment can use the data to solidify the TEM business case. Finally, TEM vendors can use the information to benchmark actual savings results achieved for their customers in order to enhance their value proposition.

“Fixed and mobile TEM programs absolutely drive hard dollar savings,” states Tim Lybrook, CEO. “However, there are multiple industry standards and best practices to align within the telecom environment. If a TEM is working properly, those hard dollar savings should be realized in the early stages of the program and then decline over time. Organizations should also consider additional standards and best practices to build and maintain telecom management excellence to align with their overall business objectives.”
