Daily management and maintenance of telecom environments are a real challenge for most organizations today. The need for control and visibility on mobility costs and technological assets is growing, more and more enterprises are seeking for flexibility and accessibility of their inventories. Cimpl continues to work with a world-leading construction company to help manage their annual wireless spend and achieve clearer oversight of their technological environment.
“By the end of 2018, they had a little over 2,000 wireless assets and had generated an ROI of 475%.”
With more than 1900 assets on deck, and 3 carriers to deal with regularly, this construction company was overflowing with mobile devices, different contracts and rate plans. The company’s data, such as their devices and assets, were tracked primarily through Excel spreadsheets and numerous portals. Employees would often go on vacation, or leave the country, without adding any roaming packages. The bills were piling up, and many roaming charges and mobile devices needed to be managed. Their desire for proper control and awareness over their technological spend were recognized. They wanted to adopt new efficient methods to keep track of their data as the time and money spent on manual methods, like spreadsheets, were costing them too much. The company’s primary goal was to not only manage their mobile costs and inventory across the organization, but also their overall processes as to lower their man hours. They wished to have some sort of versatile platform that could manage different types of tasks and workflows, without the usage of multiple programs and spreadsheets.
