(MONTREAL, QC – July 3, 2019) Cimpl [], leading the revolution in technology expense management, is proud to announce that it is profiled in the 2019 release of the Gartner Market Guide for Telecom Expense Management Services.

“Gartner has been an important source of insights on the Telecom Expense Management industry and this new research note offers the right insights needed for selecting a TEM partner,” said Cimpl’s President, Christopher Thierry.“The TEM Market Guide provides a clear picture of where the market stands today and what Fortune 5000 should expect from their TEM providers in the future. I am glad that Cimpl is gaining momentum globally as we offer a future-proof solution that enterprises are looking for today.”

Gartner evaluates TEM providers based on their ability to drive process efficiencies, performance, and cost optimization across all communications-related IT, and their ability to scale beyond traditional fixed and mobile TEM. Gartner noted key trends indicating enterprises moving toward fully-managed and outsourced TEM services, delivered with cloud-based TEM applications. Another trend is the vendor’s ability to track services, costs, and inventories associated with UCaaS, IaaS, PaaS, storage, IoT and other IT assets, in addition to fixed and mobile, from a single platform.

Every year, Gartner releases a Guide on Telecom Expense Management services. This year, Cimpl was one of 11 regional vendors profiled by Gartner. Gartner recommends vendor management leaders should evaluate TEM vendors for support with a complex mix of services, examine the local capabilities of the vendor, and review platform and automation capabilities..

According to Gartner, “Interest in TEM continues to increase from midsize enterprises, which are looking to control costs and usage, and enhance processes around their growing number of consumption-based services and mobile services/devices.”

This year, Gartner found that, as a key benefit to TEM, companies are seeking to enhance their tools and processes. Yet, they still face challenges that are associated with poor process definition and incomplete governance models. Companies using TEM utilise their services to take control of their cloud, mobile, wireline TEM and IoT/M2M, inventory and costs.
