Valicom Announces “Beyond BYOD” Mobile Expense Management Webinar

Valicom is to host a webinar exploring current options and trends around mobile expense management.  “Beyond BYOD: Mobility Cost Management in 2013” will be held October 2, 10:00 AM central time.  Register for Beyond BYOD: Mobility Cost Management now.

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has been a top telecom industry buzzword for a while now.  Valicom will cover statistics from a recent TEMIA (Telecom Expense Management Industry Association) survey about how well BYOD works, and discuss what other options there are to keep mobility costs down.

The webinar will also show that managing mobility isn’t just about controlling cost. It’s also about tracking inventory, allocating expenses and making smarter business decisions.  Even companies that implement BYOD often find it isn’t the magic bullet they thought it was.  There are additional management tactics that can lower expenses, increase visibility and reduce risk.

Valicom President Jeff Poirior, who will help present the webinar, says “Having done telecommunications management since 1991, we have a long history in the industry and have been watching the BYOD trend evolve.  BYOD can mean different things to different firms, and while we find that it offers some benefits, it isn’t always a total solution. 

There are a lot of moving parts in a strong mobile management program, and we want telecom managers to understand their options.”
