A little fun fact: The Reese’s peanut butter cup is the number one selling candy brand in the United States. It was created by Harry Burnett Reese in 1928 and sold for one penny each. Can you imagine life without Reese’s? That’s what UCaaS and TEM are; they go together perfectly and make your life better.
UCaaS has been growing at warp speed the last few years as businesses need to empower their remote or hybrid workforce but equally as important, to get employees the tools they need to be productive. In order to be competitive in today’s markets, companies need technology that accelerates collaboration and innovation and, in most cases, it’s not one simple solution. Keeping an eye on the UCaaS usage, costs and licenses can quickly become a burden. Invariably people come and go from the business, phone usage spikes and contract terms are long forgotten.
This is where TEM enters the story. Layering a TEM solution along with UCaaS takes the burden of all those things and automates the processes. Technology expense management software pulls in invoices, validates order, maps billed rates to contract terms, identifies usage patterns and so much more. For a relatively small cost, businesses can have peace of mind that they are only paying for what they use, at their contracted rates and managing the licenses to optimize spend. And, if like most companies, several UCaaS providers are deployed, the TEM solution makes it even easier providing a holistic view across individuals, locations, and departments.
As economic pressures abound and increased expectations from IT departments, layering a TEM solution is the ideal approach to identifying saves – both money and time. For companies who currently don’t use a TEM solution, we can save upwards of 30%. Ready to Tangoe?
