Manufacturer Reaps 175% in ROI Savings with Wireless Expense Management
Day-to-day management of wireless devices is a real challenge for organizations today as the demand for flexibility and accessibility increases. Mobility costs are out of control, there is no visibility and supporting regular employee requests was just too much for one person.
With Cimpl, a manufacturer recuperated savings that far exceeded their initial investment.
Prior to partnering with Cimpl, the customer was using another mobility service provider and was not satisfied as they could not identify the value they were receiving from their offering. Their Site Manager had been tasked with taking over the wireless management for North America and needed to gain control of the expenses. The day-to-day activities of managing the wireless fleet was becoming a full-time endeavour. Keeping track of top users and zero-usage devices, process multiple orders per month, be the mobility helpdesk and, furthermore, audit invoices from their two carriers showcased the customer’s need for a simpler, convenient way of managing these necessary tasks in a single, streamlined platform complimented by Managed Services.
