BE MY VALENTINE: 10 Reasons to love TEM

Valentine’s day has me in an absolute tizzy this year. Something about the month of February for me is all about the frilly heart cards and candies, chocolates and flowers.

Here at Valicom, we’re embracing this special day by reflecting on all of the reason we love telecom expense management (TEM). Because frankly, after 25 years in business, you could say that we have developed quite a thing for reviewing telecom invoices and building inventories.

Here’s a few reasons why we absolutely LOVE T-E-M:

Flirting with efficiency: Breathe a sigh of relief as you hand off telecom expense management processes to our team of telecom experts. Save time and money by allowing the people who specialize in TEM to handle your invoice processing and bill pay. Outsourcing TEM allows your team get back to their core responsibilities and the things that make your business tick. 

Kissing invoice errors goodbye: Finding invoices errors can sometimes be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. If you don’t know what you’re looking for – chances are you aren’t going to find it. But the savings to be had from finding these errors is worth it’s weight in gold. It’s one of our core strengths, in fact we’re hosting an entire webinar about it. Stay tuned for that announcement.

Beloved bill pay: Another thing we love helping our clients with is processing their telecom payments. It takes one more thing off their plate, so they can get back to the things that they are really good at. 

Split the love: Our TEM tool allows you to split invoice costs down to 1% of the total invoice with cost allocation. What does it mean for you? Less tension between departments, and no more ‘who’s going to pay for this?’. Now invoices can be fairly and transparently split amongst departments, locations, and employees. 

We adore telco invoices: That 1,000 page invoice that arrives on your desk every month? What a pain. But we love them. Why? It’s like a treasure hunt with a pot of gold at the end, every single month. We love scouring through invoices, line by line on behalf of our clients. We love surprising them with our findings. 

Passion for negotiating: Not only do we talk the talk, we walk the walk. Lean on our team for effective contract negotiation with your carriers. Clearview will alert you when you contract is about to expire, and we’ll handle the rest. You don’t have to settle for the same ‘ole rates year after year. Valicom’s benchmark pricing data and professional negotiators will provide you with the competitive edge you need to get great rates. 

Infatuation with invoice approval: It’s a totally new module that we just released in Clearview. The module allows invoices to be reviewed and approved by multiple people, depending on cost, location, or type of spend. The invoices can be sorted by several fields (date, expense, variance) and approval is just a click away! 

True love for tools: Goodbye Excel! Valicom created Clearview, our web-based application, to allow telecom analysis to do away with Excel sheets for TEM. Why? Because the old reliable Microsoft application just doesn’t have the right capabilities that a dedicated TEM tool does. Learn more about the capabilities of Clearview, here. 

Enamored to educate: One of the most rewarding parts of our jobs is educating our clients about the power of TEM and the effects proactive management can have on business’ bottom line. Access our entire resource library on our website. We’ve got white papers, case studies, and webinars galore! 

Sweetheart partners: Did you know we have a fine-tuned channel partner program? That’s right, you can resell our software and services to YOUR clients. Add passive recurring revenue to your bottom line by expanding your business suite of services. Your clients trust you to bring the solutions to the table, lean on Valicom as your experience TEM solution.
