Advisory Services: You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

Advisory Services: You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

2021 is poised to be a year of change that involves personal touch and stronger connections.  Leading companies and organizations will be taking immense, transformative steps to optimize their growth and revenue.  Some will be embarking on end-to-end digital transformations while others will be learning how to achieve innovation in a rapidly shifting market environment.  As a result, policies will change, processes will be redefined, and software will be implemented.  IT lifecycle management, mobile services, cloud, and technology expense management will be at the forefront as efforts to drive cost reductions kick into high gear.  But, how do you achieve maximum value while also striving to do more with less?  Who can help extract you from the quandary of “I don’t know what I don’t know?”  You need a partner who has the depth of experience to provide strategic advice to help achieve optimal — and sustainable — results.  Enter Advisory Services.

Before engaging, it’s important to understand that not all Advisory Services are created equal.  To be successful, going beyond giving advice is critical.  You need strategic planning to guide your organization toward new business goals and prepare your teams for change.  That strategy must help you connect your people and processes with the technology that drives your organization.  At Tangoe, we don’t just build amazing technology expense management and mobility services software.  We support it with unmatched, global industry expertise. 

We Do Advisory Services Better

There is no one in the industry who can match the breadth of experience and expertise that Tangoe provides.    

Real World, Global Experience

Tangoe’s Advisory Services teams are confident, competent, and experienced.  Collectively, we have over 500 years of experience in telecom, mobile, and cloud as well as generalized IT services.  In addition, we have an extensive portfolio of successful engagements and are experts in strategy.  Our deep domain expertise is unmatched among our competitors and we’re global, operating in over 200+ countries.  Moreover, we have the largest database in the industry for benchmark data and intellectual property. 

Up-to-Date Knowledge and Certification

While it’s important to look for a well-established company, it’s equally important to make sure they’re up-to-date with the latest advancements in the industry.  Technology expense management, IT lifecycle, mobile services, and cloud are evolving at lightning speed.  Subsequently, our team continuously takes part in continuing education programs so that they can stay ahead of today’s IT-related trends.

A Steller Reputation

Working with 3rd party vendors and consultants requires an extra level of caution because the skill level and expertise of that vendor reflects on your organization.  Therefore, it’s critical to choose a company that has an outstanding reputation.  Nearly 50% of the Fortune 500 rely on Tangoe to work smarter, save money and be confident in their decisions by managing and paying their enterprise technology expenses and mobility services.  In fact, you’ll never have to worry about your organization’s reputation because we’re knowledgeable, experienced, and well-respected. 

Return on Investment (ROI)

Budgetary constraints play a key role in your decision-making process.  Outsourcing work in the telecom, mobile, and cloud field is a fantastic money-saving step since it’s usually cheaper to hire an outside consultant rather than bringing on full-time employees.  In addition, internal employees tend to be silo’d in their expertise and have limited resources and time to deep-dive into your policies, processes, and workflows.  For example, they may be fantastic at preparing an analysis of accounts but lack the carrier experience to properly audit your expenses and guide you through contract negotiations.  At the same time, it’s important to avoid the temptation to choose the cheapest firm around.  Extremely low rates may also mean a lack of knowledge, experience, or expertise to meet your specific needs.
