Businesses of all sizes, from all sectors, are unknowingly overspending on mobile network services and device purchasing. Are you?
Hidden costs, inappropriate tariffs and contracts, ineffective tech funds, unused services, exceptional usage, policy breaches, and billing errors exist in almost all mobile budgets. However, many of the opportunities to reduce and control costs can only be truly uncovered when your business has a detailed understanding of how it purchases, uses, and manages its mobile services and devices.
An effective ‘Mobile Expense Management’ strategy can help you to optimise your mobile costs, quickly releasing significant budget, (often in excess of 20%), that can be reinvested in transforming your mobile IT and security. What’s more by streamlining poor mobile administration processes that are often the underlying cause of overspending, your business can also release valuable IT and Finance resources for more strategic work.
