Can Telecommunications Management Make Your Business More Efficient?

By Ian Yates October 16, 2012

The communications industry has experienced dramatic change and exponential growth within the last decade. At the core of much of that growth has been telecommunications and particularly the rise of mobility. From the explosion of mobile devices and advanced wireless networks to the emergence of over-the-top (OTT) services, the industry is transforming and changing the way we, as a global society, communicate.

As the landscape of communications continues to change, it is apparent that enterprise organizations must also evolve how they manage all of their communications assets. With the proliferation of a mobile and global workforce, organizations must seek new ways to gain control of their communications not only for costs and security, but also to manage these new technologies and devices to benefit the enterprise by increasing productivity, empowering a flexible work staff and enabling business growth. 

Businesses are dealing with a number of challenges including:

  1. Cost control and visibility
  2. Reducing costs through increased business efficiencies without impacting productivity
  3. Proactively manage services and spend across telecoms estate
  4. Managing communications related services (e.g. inventory, contracts)
  5. Security of company information despite a more mobile workforce
  6. Integration of IT and telecoms processes

A telecommunications management solution empowers enterprises to securely manage their increasingly sophisticated communications by providing centralized management, increased visibility and long-term cost efficiencies. While the task of employing a telecommunications management solution may seem overwhelming, the investment will result in more control over an enormous inventory, reduce telecommunications spend by 10-20 percent and build an efficient and ongoing management process for the growing number of mobile devices. It’s no longer just about telecom expense management, although these services effectively underpin the inventory build and management, but rather management of the entire communications environment.

Through an effective telecommunications management partner, customers benefit from the establishment of built-to-last solutions, processes, security and governance based on a solid operating model. The partner should have the financial and commercial strength to offer flexible models and be the driving force behind a fully managed telecommunications management solution.

Telecommunications management provides the necessary visibility, cost control, centralized management and data and device security needed to manage services efficiently and securely.  These facets of management will become increasingly important as the world is introduced to new technologies, market trends and challenges. Additionally, organizations are now requiring innovative communications strategies to develop working methodologies, improve employee productivity and aid business management and growth. Effective telecommunications strategies will help enable organizations to transform their business and gain a competitive edge in a constantly evolving global landscape.
