Building a case for not reinventing the wheel
My dad always encouraged me to find answers to problems that people had already solved. “There’s no need to reinvent the wheel, someone has already encountered and solved this issue. Leverage what they’ve learned.”
He needed assistance coordinating 5K race, and urged me to connect with another non-profit in town that puts on an annual race. “Ask to use their planning tools.” No way, I thought… 1. I doubt they have a binder just laying around with all of these materials and 2. they’ll never give them to me to use. But they did, and we put on a successful race because of their resources.
TEM Tools for Business
More often than not, the businesses we encounter are not aware that a specific tool exists to address exactly their telecom expense management pain points. Exposure for TEM tools and professionally managed services has been minimal. Like it or not, it’s been a pretty well kept secret.
We built Clearview over 7 years ago, and have been making improvements and updates to it ever since. The tool offers just about any application, and level of detail, related to TEM that you can imagine. Sure – you can build your own tool, and it might be cheaper in the short term… but who’s going to maintain it, keep it current to your environment, and add new features? There’s no reason to reinvent this wheel.
What’s even better is that Clearview is a web-based application. The tool that can be accessed from just about everywhere, at any time. All you need is a laptop and an internet connection. Now that’s what I call efficiency.
