Release date: 7/2/2009

Communications lifecycle management solution provider continues strong growth momentum in North America and internationally

ORANGE, Conn., July 2, 2009 – Tangoe, Inc., the leading global provider of enterprise communications lifecycle management software and technology-enabled services, today announced that the company has received a “Strong Positive” rating, the highest possible rating given, in the Gartner MarketScope for Telecom Expense Management, published June 22, 2009. The leading analyst firm’s MarketScope report gave the TEM industry an overall market rating of “Promising,” projecting that 2009 and 2010 will be breakout years for the market with continued growth through 2013 both in North America and Western Europe.

The Gartner TEM MarketScope rated TEM solution providers from North America, Europe, Asia/Pacific, and Central/Latin America. Gartner invited 145 vendors to participate in the MarketScope process and chose 45 vendors for rating. Criteria evaluated for each of the companies included: business model, customer experience, innovation, product and/or service offering(s), operations, sales execution/pricing, and overall viability.

As the largest TEM provider—by nearly a factor of two—in terms of revenue as well as expenses and assets under management, Tangoe experienced explosive growth in 2008 and further expanded its comprehensive, global capabilities both in the fixed and wireless areas. With approximately $7.0 billion in client fixed and mobile expenses under management, and more than 1 million mobile devices under management, Tangoe experienced unparalleled growth in its client base in 2008. In addition to its unrivaled client base, the company also provides domestic and international enterprises with the largest technology, managed services, and consulting solutions portfolio in the TEM industry.

“It is an honor to receive a strong positive rating in Gartner’s latest TEM MarketScope,” said Tangoe president and CEO, Al Subbloie. “We believe this rating underscores Tangoe’s ability to innovate and lead the TEM industry in the face of a continuously changing telecom landscape. Despite economic uncertainty, we have remained focused on delivering services and solutions that consistently deliver exceptional value to our domestic and international clients and our value-added partners. Our focus on client success, along with our ability to uniquely address all of the challenges companies face in managing their global fixed and mobile telecommunications, has fueled our rapid growth and widespread marketplace adoption. This focus on solution innovation, service delivery, and exceptional client results will remain the tenants that drive our continued future success.”
