Fortune 500 Insurance Company Saves Big with Tangoe One Managed Mobility Solutions

Tangoe’s powerful software-first solution enables this company to increase mobility program visibility across business units, reduce spend, and consolidate device inventory tracking for the entire enterprise ecosystem. 

Fortune 500 Insurance

The Challenge

A Fortune 500 leader in property and casualty insurance, group benefits, and mutual funds serves more than one million small businesses across the United States. With more than 17,000 employees nationwide, mobility management is one of this company’s top IT priorities. The CIO was tasked with migrating this company away from legacy smart devices, increasing visibility into its mobility program across business units, reducing mobility spend, and consolidating asset inventory tracking for the entire enterprise. All mobility program management was an extremely manual process; six people were responsible for ordering, delivering, and fixing mobile assets and two full-time employees focused solely on carrier billing and accurately allocating wireless charges, until they turned to Tangoe.

The Outcome

After an extensive audit by Tangoe’s Advisory Services (TAS) team, this company realized a $31,000-per-month hard-cost savings. Additionally, they were able to cancel two full-time contractors, and made it possible for their IT staff to fully focus on large-scale projects rather than being bogged down by procuring, deploying, and supporting connected assets. 

Tangoe’s expense management tools and data normalization processes also saved this company another full-time 

employee salary, allowing that individual to, instead, be utilized for additional revenue-generating opportunities. After just the first year of collaboration with Tangoe, this company saved more than $500,000, with the savings expected to continue.
