Last but not least in our posts on telecom expense management tasks made easier with TEM software., we’re going to cover reporting. Granted, this is not an exhaustive list of tasks, by any means, but it’s a good start. You can go back and see what we had to say about inventorymanagement, cost allocation, telecom contracts, telecom invoice management, order & change management and issue tracking. And now for your reading pleasure….
Last but not least, any telecom expense management software should offer lots of reporting. As they say, “You can’t manage what you can’t measure”. And the beauty of all this data being integrated in one system is that it allows you to look at it from many different angles. Look at inventory cross-referenced by user, cost center or account. See trending data by cost center, location, orinventory type. Request information about various timeframes. Our particular software comes standard with almost thirty reports. We can even design very specific custom reports, based on parameters you provide.
And note that different users can have access to different reports. There is also a Dashboard feature that allows each user to select the information most useful to them, and have it accessible in a variety of visual formats. By clicking the image, it allows a deep dive into the report behind the graph. Often clients that have outsourced most of the actual day-to-day telecom management tasks to a vendor partner like Valicom still utilize reports and dashboards to keep tabs on operations.
And a dashboard is a lot tidier way to see your information than a spreadsheet, as these images illustrate. If you’re still using a spreadsheet, try out our telecom expense management software for a glimpse of the new millenium.
Now that you’ve seen the seven ways to streamline your telecom management, it’s time to take the next step and actually get a look at the software.
