ORANGE, Conn., September 30, 2009 – Tangoe, Inc., a leading global provider of enterprise communications lifecycle management software and technology-enabled services, today announced that the company has achieved 1 billion ($US) in non-U.S. annual fixed and mobile telecommunications spend under management. This milestone is the direct result of the strong global demand for telecom expense management services and the company’s international operations capabilities in more than 195 countries and territories around the globe. With customers and partners across the Americas, EMEA, and APAC, Tangoe is responsible for managing global telecom spend for enterprises in industries as varied as financial services and healthcare, retail, manufacturing, and the military.
“Properly managing telecom assets and their costs at a global level has become a top priority for a rapidly increasing number of organizations,” said Al Subbloie, president and CEO of Tangoe. “Global enterprises require a partner with the technology, expertise, and worldwide presence to keep even the most complicated fixed and mobile communications expenses in check. Tangoe continues to expand its portfolio of solutions and locations to serve the global business community.”

Managing International Compliance

In addition, Tangoe holds Safe Harbor certification for compliance within the European Union’s data privacy laws, allowing the company to process invoices and employee information from any of the EU’s member states.
“In combination with global economic pressures, the continued increase in fixed-line communications and the unprecedented surge in mobile technologies has resulted in global enterprise focus upon better managing communications and achieving enterprise-wide expense reductions,” cited Eric Goodness, research vice president with Gartner. “This combination has resulted in an increased demand for TEM services in every region of the world. Companies capable of meeting these needs will undoubtedly experience new business opportunities in the global marketplace.”
