A top telecom expense manager who manages locations on 6 continents enrolled in our AOTMP University Master Certification Program. Using the hands-on training she received while attaining her Sourcing and Procurement Certification, she was able to reduce Telecom spending by several hundred thousand dollars. In addition, she attributes AOTMP University for providing guidance on streamlining, standardizing, and creating consistent workflow processes for all international locations.
As a telecommunications professional for a large, medical device manufacturer with two locations, her responsibilities included negotiating contracts for all service, service orders, repair/troubleshooting tickets, invoice approval; all-the-while managing a $300k annual telecom budget.
Upon receiving her Contracts Management Specialty Certification from AOTMP University, she was able to return to her company and hone in and identify duplicate billing for T-1 and data services, overbilling for toll services, and misapplied tariffs; resulting in refunds of up to $180,000 for the company. In addition, she re-negotiated new contracts with telecom vendors that yielded a 10% average savings annually.
A seasoned telecom manager who oversees telecommunications team that services 3000+ employees on a national basis manages a broad list of responsibilities for his company ranging from telecom budget management, vendor negotiations, service order management, and final approval for invoice payment. Time to develop strategic telecommunications processes was not a luxury afforded him.
His largest challenge, the billing, audit, and approval process, involved an excessive amount of time and resources. With tools acquired from AOTMP University’s toolkit, he was able to extract existing templates for managing inventory and performing invoice-to-contract compliance in a measure that can be replicated throughout the department. He felt more confident understanding the process and having a guide for implementation to increase both the organization and cost-effectiveness of the department.
