Valicom's Success with TEM

The Problem

This client is one of the largest hospitality providers in the world. The client approached Valicom requiring a large scale, comprehensive WAN audit and inventory overhaul. With over $50 million in annual telecom spend, the client was having a hard time accounting for, and controlling their budget.

The client’s initial focus was on their WAN inventory to address a significant over expenditure. They needed assistance identifying potential billing and contract compliance issues along with other cost reduction opportunities. By deploying Valicom’s TEM services they hoped to understand actual costs and build a strategy to control these costs moving forward.

The Results

After Valicom itemized their telecom inventory, they conducted a comprehensive billing audit and reviewed existing contracts for compliance – resulting in $1.2 million in savings. The savings continued to impress, reaching over $6.2 million to date.
