The Myth Behind "Successful" Telecom Audits

Coupling Audits with Systemic TEM Programs for Sky-High Savings

Veramark Technologies Journal

Telecom is one of the top 5 expenses in most organizations today and is increasingly a target of cost-cutting efforts. Historical telecom audits provide quick, one-time savings that can be an important part of these efforts - but only a part. Because audits provide only a snapshot-in-time of the telecom network, they fail to provide organizations with the sustained visibility needed to identify trends, make accurate budget forecasts, and solidify long-term ongoing savings.

Based on the experiences gleaned in more than 25 years in the telecommunications industry, Veramark Technologies finds that the key to continuous, long lasting savings is a full product lifecycle telecom expense management (TEM) solution. TEM helps businesses dramatically reduce operational expenses, improve staff productivity, and plan future investments in technology. TEM help organizations leverage the information gained through an audit to automate best practices, improve productivity, and adapt to the incorporation of new technologies. Processes that might otherwise spiral out of control - such as wireless expense management and contract management - can be continuously improved and monitored.

The audit is an important tool for defining the initial state of an organization's telecom environment and identifying opportunities for improvement. As a long-term expense management strategy, however, the audit alone is a blunt instrument that fails to maximize sustainable, long-term value. The key lies in combining one-time, historical audits with a long-term, systemic TEM program.
