Reasons for TEM in Energy
Gaining visibility into your telecom spend – In the past, clients have realized they were blindly paying invoices month after month with no clear understanding if all the invoiced services were in fact needed. The bottom line? Savings.
Taking a load off
The effort of paying the hundreds of monthly telecom invoices becomes tiresome for energy companies. When energy companies realize they could have professional invoice auditing assistance and have help in invoice processing they became interested in TEM. Valicom’s energy clients have created great success stories.
Having a main point of contact
Valicom’s energy general manager, Joe, is available daily via email and phone to answer any questions our client contacts may have. Besides that, but just as important, we are here to serve as the primary auditor of each and every invoice that arrives monthly. Between two energy clients we see 1,000+ monthly invoices. Having an experienced telecom auditor review every invoice is crucial to the success of any TEM project.
