The Power of SaaS


As with all things, work gets easier if you have the right tools. So why work with poorly designed or non-existent tools when managing your telecom? With the roll-out of subscription-based, web-delivered telecom expense management software that allows you to enter, track, manage and report on your costs, there isn’t an excuse anymore.

What is SaaS?

SaaS is an acronym for “software as a service”, which is another way to say, “software you access via the internet, versus having to download and install on a computer or server.” In other words, SaaS is software when and where you need it. Security, updates, upgrades, patches, enhancements, anything and everything maintaining software requires are handled remotely, and it is transparent to the user.

Telecom expense management, or TEM, consists of a variety of tasks, each one handling a different aspect of the telecom environment.  A TEM SaaS tool is designed to make it easier to enter data, track changes, cross-reference items, flag problems and push invoices from entry, to approval, to payment. It also stores everything in one central location, wireless, voice and data, and offers loads of reports allowing you to fine tune the data for even the finickiest of managers.

Telecom expense management software is part of a bigger picture. Whether you want to do everything yourself, or plan to outsource some or all of the telecom management tasks to a partner, the tool is what ties it all together. Data goes in, someone manages the information within the tool, and good reporting and clean invoice payments come out the other end.
