Avoiding TEM Landmines 

No single telecom expense management (TEM) vendor offers the best solution for all enterprises because TEM vendors, like enterprises, are unique.

Focusing on business requirements and the delivery capabilities of vendors will yield fruitful results. Conversely, selecting the lowest price without regard to proper solution alignment can
doom a relationship. This Analyst report helps enterprises avoid cost-focused selection pitfalls and other selection landmines by sharing keen insights that influence positive TEM vendor selection results.

Peer-to-Peer Insight for Side-Stepping TEM Landmines

Finding the Right Solution

According to AOTMP Research & Advisory, just more than half of enterprise respondents have a relationship with a telecom expense management provider, while a little more than a third want to change providers within the next 24 months, or at the end of their current contracts. This indicates a gap in vendor service delivery or enterprises not selecting the best partner for their environments. Given the evolving state of telecom environments, finding the right solution can be a challenge. As enterprises invest in the next wave of technology, they expect their vendors to provide consultative leadership and guidance, and ensure correct implementation and management in accordance with business goals. This can only be done well when collaborating with the TEM vendor.
