NetPlus® TEM 2.0
Telecom Expense Management... Enhanced
The New Face of TEM
Telecommunications Expense Management (TEM) vendors have touted savings of 20% or more on telecom bills. They’re focused on selling services, audits, and outsourcing. For many years TEM has reaped savings for clients by finding and disputing incorrect charges. But these savings decrease exponentially as less and less errors need to be corrected in the bill.
As clients face dwindling savings from audits and disputes, tire of the outsourcing, and the never ending cycle of finding the best TEM, they need new solutions. That solution is NetPlus Telecommunications Expense Management, TEM 2.0.
For over 25 years NetPlus has crafted a solution that goes far beyond just Telecom Expense Management. Our focus has been to offer our clients a solution that would break the cycle of finding the next best TEM vendor. NetPlus TEM 2.0 deep dives into your switch to retrieve your true inventory. Data directly from your switch, telling you which lines are actually provisioned, and which lines are in use. This valuable data forms the basis of our TEM 2.0 process.
NetPlus TEM 2.0 offers clients the best solution in providing insight, total network management, total expense management, and so much more. NetPlus TEM 2.0 frees you from endless cycles of diminishing savings, while driving savings you never knew about.
- Inventory Management
Inventory is at the heart of TEM. How can you accurately audit your vendor bills without knowing your true inventory? TEM vendors gather your inventory from the same vendor bills you are auditing or try to sell expensive physical inventory services.
NetPlus Inventory Management directly pulls inventory from the one source of truth, your switch. Switch data can clearly delineate which lines, circuits, etc are in use and provisioned and which are not. Comparing these to your bills will produce the most accurate audit of your telecom expenses.
- Provisioning Management
NetPlus takes provisioning to a whole new level. We not only automate the ordering process of circuits and wireless devices, but we program the actual phone. Provisioning Management also encompasses moves, adds, changes and disconnects (MAC-D). MAC-D processes are vital keeping inventory up to date and accurate. With NetPlus moves, adds, changes and disconnects can be centrally managed and inventory continually validated.
NetPlus goes far beyond the tradition provisioning management of ordering circuits; we delve deeper into your processes to drive savings and added value where you never thought possible.
- Invoice and Contract Management/Cost Allocation
NetPlus gives you one platform to manage all your vendor invoices and contracts as well as allocate costs back to your internal departments. Most TEM vendors have focused on only managing vendor contracts while missing important internal accounting.
NetPlus cost accounting gives you a holistic view of your telecom spend breaking it down by department so you know where your dollars are going. This could be even more vital to your business than just knowing vendor invoices. It allows you to see exactly how much each department is spending and how they are spending it.
NetPlus TEM 2.0 can give you the best audit available by conducting the audit directly against your true inventory! We can find more savings than with a standard TEM audit. Our seasoned team of auditors pulls your inventory from the switch, then audits them against your vendor bills. The audit goes beyond just answering the question of whether you are being overbilled for services that were previsouly cancelled or never existed. Our team of auditors also check for underutilization to further reduce or consolidate your network to find the most savings.
