TEM For Energy: Case Study

Energy Case Study: TEM Success Story

Energy is an industry we see again and again having the biggest impact through TEM initiatives. Why? Energy management organizations have many services, locations, and vendors, making in-house telecom expense management a tedious task that there is just no time for. TEM services such as invoice auditing and cost allocation have brought Valicom’s energy clients a great amount of savings.

Today we share a success story to demonstrate the impact Valicom had on a regional energy provider’s telecom environment.

With 24 years of TEM know-how under our belts, we have racked up a success story or two. Sometimes it takes seeing an example to really understand exactly what we do for our clients. The following is outline of a case study where, when faced with a lack of internal expertise and resources, this energy client decided it was time to outsource their telecom invoice processing.

Working together, Valicom and the energy management client audited and populated existing inventory into Clearview.  These efforts resulted in $145,000 in one time credits and $400,000 in on going savings. Valicom provided benchmark pricing and data points for the client to assist in negotiating new, more competitive rates for soon-to-be expiring contracts. The client now utilizes Valicom’s web-based TEM software, Clearview, for centralized invoice processing and bill pay.
