The Company Offers Free Download of TEMIA Report on ROI of TEM

  • Though important, TEM, WEM, and MMS solutions are not understood by non-IT professionals
  • The solutions’ value can be better articulated by expressing their benefits in ROI terms
  • Readers will learn how to save 5% to 30% in telecom expenses


(MONTREAL, QC – August 14, 2015) Etelesolv (now Cimpl), Canada’s leader in IT and telecom expense management, is offering, free of charge, a comprehensive report on the ROI of telecom expense management (TEM), wireless expense management (WEM), and managed mobility services (MMS). This report is entitled “TEM, WEM and MMS Programs: Developing a Sustainable ROI, Cost Justification, and Business Case,” and was authored by the Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA) and its members. The report is intended to help IT managers and CIOs articulate the value of the three disciplines to non-IT executives.

The company’s Vice-President of Sales and Marketing had this to say: “Even though TEM can (and should) be a critical part of any company’s business processes and strategic vision, non-IT executives may have difficulties understanding this point. For this reason, the members of TEMIA (including the company) have jointly authored an ROI report that clearly explains the capabilities of TEM, WEM, and MMS solutions. More critically, this report provides IT managers with a clear foundation from which to build a business case justification of these solutions that expresses their significance in ROI terms for easy communication. The value of TEM has always been clear from an IT standpoint; now, it can be clear for other departments as well.”

Companies can save anywhere from 5% to 30% on their telecom expenses by properly planning and optimizing their spending strategies. However, the path to achieving these sizable cost savings can be very difficult without the intervention of TEM, WEM, or MMS solutions since navigating the vagaries of plans and contracts is challenging to people inexperienced in such forms of expense management.

 “TEM, WEM, and MMS Programs: Developing a Sustainable ROI, Cost Justification, and Business Case” is filled with figures and value propositions similar to the foregoing statistic, along with useful and comprehensive overviews of the three disciplines. Readers of the report will benefit from:

  • Obtaining a fuller understanding of the functions and differences among TEM, WEM, and MMS;
  • Having both detailed and summarized business case/justification information for TEM, WEM, and MMS; and
  • Getting instructions on how to complete baseline assessments of their telecommunications investments.

Having tools that greatly reduce costs and improve the outcome of IT investments is invaluable to any business. However, the workings of such tools are often too technologically-nuanced for non-technical decision-makers to properly evaluate. “TEM, WEM, and MMS Programs: Developing a Sustainable ROI, Cost Justification, and Business Case” furnishes IT executives and managers the means to help their C-suite peers appraise TEM, WEM, and MMS solutions for adoption. The report is crucial reading for anyone wishing to improve their organizations through the deployment of modern management systems. Download “TEM, WEM, and MMS Programs: Developing a Sustainable ROI, Cost Justification, and Business Case” free of charge here.
