TEM Education Continued: An Instructive & Enlightening Experience

In my constant quest to grow and expand my knowledge I like to look for resources that I can refer to for our clients and for our company. Recently, I stumbled upon an industry expert named THINKstrategies. They provide On-demand strategic consulting services. Since Valicom recently announced the launch of our telecom expense management software-as-a-service (SaaS), Clearview, I have become more interested in educating myself on emerging SaaS offerings.

I have setup several different Google alerts to look for news and new offerings relative to SaaS. I was curious to know whether there were any directories that tracked software-as-a-service that would enable people to go to one place to obtain these types of technology solutions. I was pleasantly surprised to find a vast array of information about SaaS contained within THINKstrategies website.

IT and Telecom professionals are always searching for better tools to manage their functions. I would encourage you to visit their site as a resource especially in your quest for more knowledge regarding Telecommunication Expense Management companies and to reduce business costs. There is constant pressure to do more work with less people and leverage the latest SaaS technology. Clearview® is one of those tools you should consider putting in your tool box.
