Leading telecommunications consulting firm selects Tangoe technologies to support TEM services delivery
ORANGE, Conn., June 10, 2009 — Tangoe, Inc., the leading global provider of enterprise communications lifecycle management software and technology-enabled services, today announced that it has entered a strategic partnership with Atlanta-based telecom consulting and expense management provider, Advocate Networks, LLC. Under the agreement, Advocate Networks will utilize Tangoe’s CommCare Management Platform (CMP) as the technology foundation for its entire portfolio of fixed and mobile telecom expense management services, including expense management, wireless helpdesk support, provisioning, and procurement. Advocate Networks offers its wide range of IT and telecommunications services to mid-market enterprises and service providers with between $1 million and $20 million in annual telecom spend.
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, Advocate Networks will migrate its current customers to Tangoe’s CMP technology and expand its managed service offerings to include enhanced international invoice processing, order management, and mobile helpdesk support capabilities.
“Over the last five years, Advocate Networks has brought its expertise to more than 300 enterprise and service provider customers with complex telecom needs,” said Craig Gosselin, Tangoe chief marketing officer. “Its focus on full lifecycle management in the mid-market space is a powerful market differentiator for mid-sized organizations looking to implement complete fixed and mobile communications management solutions.”
