Telecoms is an ever evolving area and one that’s almost unrecognisable from what it was 20 years ago.
Sweeping changes over the years in this sector have seen telecoms go from a world of monopoly fixed line service providers to the fragmented mobile-centric/ Internet-centric business of today.
In our rapidly changing and evolving world traditional telcos and other providers as well as their vendors need to adapt to the current environment and even reinvent themselves along the way.
The marcus evans Telecoms event Telecom Expense Management conference will take place in Berlin on 21-22 September and is designed to help business be financially savvy where telecoms outlays are concerned.
Cutting costs is the main focus of Telecom Expense Management (TEM), but this is easier said than done. Companies need to invest in TEM at a first step, to save money for the company in the long run. Projects to establish a working TEM structure and processes, can take years and as always: there are many ways, but only a few that lead to the desired outcome, which means actually saving expenses due to telecommunication management. If done properly, the ROI is easily measurable within TEM.
This marcus evans Telecoms conference focuses on how to getting started with TEM, how to successfully start the developing process for TEM, where are the pitfalls and what are the expectations? Telco Contract Management – Transparency and cost reduction, Wide Area Network (WAN) and building global TEM success will also be looked at.
Another dominant and everyday issue is mobile phone costs. Those costs are still very expensive and remain difficult to measure transparently.
How to save costs in a wireless world: the reduction of mobile costs in a global company will be discussed. TEM is also dependent on the right Sourcing Strategies to achieve Telecom Expense effectiveness, another topic outlined at this marcus evans Telecoms conference.
