Leading Australian telecommunications and IT consulting company selects Tangoe for critical telecom expense management support and service deliveryORANGE, Conn., August 4, 2009 — Tangoe, Inc., the leading global provider of enterprise communications lifecycle management software and technology-enabled services, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with leading Australian IT consulting firm Gibson Quai-AAS (GQ-AAS).
Australia’s largest independent telecommunications and information technology consulting firm, GQ-AAS will both resell and utilize Tangoe’s CommCare Management Platform (CMP) to enhance its current telecommunications auditing and benchmarking capabilities, rounding out its overall offerings in the TEM space. GQ-AAS has been providing telecom expense management services since 1992, during which time the firm has developed an extensive toolset and robust knowledgebase and conducted more than 800 telecommunications and IT expense management projects for major corporate and government organizations throughout Australia and Asia-Pac.
The addition of Tangoe’s patented technologies to the GQ-AAS portfolio will allow GQ-AAS to offer its customer base new telecom expense management solutions that will provide additional visibility and control of their enterprise communications resources—a function that is increasingly important to organizations managing complex fixed and mobile telecom environments. The partnership secures GQ-AAS as one of the most comprehensive expense management offerings in the local Australian market and strengthens Tangoe’s presence in the Australian and Asian markets.
“Our partnership with Tangoe supports our continued commitment to our clients, whose evolving telecom management needs require ever more involved levels of domestic and international support,” said Jonathan Jones, group manager of expense management of GQ-AAS. “The opportunity to partner with the industry leader in TEM is a huge benefit for our company and further improves our ability to provide immediate and on-going savings for clients while adhering to good corporate governance best practices in their procurement activities. Tangoe’s comprehensive CommCare suite of solutions will provide our clients with a unified suite of solutions that will enable a centralized and comprehensive solution set for all of their communications management needs.”
Tangoe’s CMP technology platform encompasses the complete range of fixed and mobile communications lifecycle management processes, including procurement, contract management, provisioning, invoice processing, asset and inventory management, smart device management, mobile device network management, and more. Enterprises that deploy these solutions experience increased visibility into—and control of—their fixed and mobile communications spend and assets. As a Tangoe partner, GQ-AAS significantly adds to its ability to manage more complex telecom accounts and to provide increased levels of corporate governance during all phases of the expense and contract cycle. The results include better understanding, governance, and manageability of enterprise-wide communications, as well as additional savings opportunities for the GQ-AAS clients.
“With extensive experience successfully providing expense management services to a wide range of clients, including all sectors of private industry and government, GQ-AAS will be a strategic partner for Tangoe as we continue to expand our reach in the international market,” said Al Rossini, Tangoe executive vice president of sales. “Our partner program is one of the most successful in the industry, and relationships with firms like GQ-AAS allow us to extend Tangoe’s leadership in the global TEM marketplace.”
