Brazilian MSP brings Tangoe’s CMP telecom expense management software to Latin American market
ORANGE, Conn., March 24, 2006—Tangoe, Inc., the leading global provider of enterprise telecommunications expense management (TEM) software and services, announced today that it has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Top of Mind, the foremost Brazilian IT and telecom managed service provider. Under the agreement, Top of Mind will utilize Tangoe’s patent-pending Communications Management Platform (CMP) software to enhance current service offerings to mid- and large-sized Brazilian organizations. The agreement reinforces Tangoe’s growing commitment to international markets, further strengthening Tangoe’s position as a global leader in the TEM technology space.The introduction of CMP will expand Top of Mind’s current telecom expense auditing and call accounting solutions, enabling them to provide customers with a full range of contract, inventory, provisioning, billing, auditing, and reporting solutions. As a Tangoe TEM Outsource Partner, Top of Mind will offer Brazilian companies and global organizations with significant presence in Latin America the ability to implement CMP as an in-house enterprise infrastructure solution.
“In Brazil and Latin America, telecom expense management has not yet reached the level of maturity it has achieved in the American market,” said Cristiano Almeida, IT and telecom unit manager of Top of Mind. “Through our partnership with Tangoe, Top of Mind will raise the TEM segment in Brazil to the next level, offering our customers solutions beyond isolated bill audits, verbal contract renegotiations, and call accounting solutions. Using Tangoe’s automated TEM software, Brazilian corporations will have greater visibility into their enterprise-wide telecom spend and the ability to manage their wireless, voice, and data more effectively.”
“Tangoe’s partnership with Top of Mind marks yet another step in the continued global growth of Tangoe and its TEM services and solutions,” said Rich Morrison, Tangoe vice president of global operations. “The Latin American region is experiencing significant growth in the voice, data, and wireless technology sectors, and Top of Mind is ideally positioned to lead the market’s migration toward a comprehensive, unified solution approach to telecom expense management. While this provides enormous growth potential for Tangoe, we are equally excited about the profound impact and savings potential that Latin American-based organizations will experience through this partnership.”
