SaaS Management vs. Expense Management: How to Optimize SaaS Costs

By Matt Maloney on Jun 20, 2022

SaaS applications are everywhere in today’s business environments. Their proliferation has helped to change the way we work, providing colleagues and customers with more powerful collaboration tools and new methods of accessing and processing information.

The wide deployment of SaaS and UCaaS solutions has also added complexity to the way enterprises manage those apps and control the costs associated with licensing, connecting and consuming them. SaaS management traditionally covers the portfolio of applications, including: purchasing, onboarding and offboarding, and license renewals. SaaS expense management takes the concept a step further by highlighting areas for optimization.

Do You Know Your EMEA Mobile Phone Costs?

By Robert Noble on Jun 14, 2022

The European telecom market is highly fragmented - even the smallest countries host as many as four mobile operators simultaneously. As operators compete for territory, cut-throat price wars saddle many with debt, limiting their ability to upgrade their networks.

As a result, calls for consolidation have grown louder. Larger players, such as Vodafone (UK), Telenor (Norway) and Telefonica (Spain), have urged policymakers to allow European mobile operators to merge and invest more in networks to keep pace with peers in Asia and the US.

Until such consolidations are made, enterprises will need to grapple with various carriers, contracts, and levels of coverage. Doing so successfully is only possible when employees have the tools they need to stay connected, supported and productive at all times. Managed Mobility Services (MMS) provides centralised technology to maximise productivity throughout the company.

Communicating Across Borders: How to Streamline Your Telecom Costs

By Robert Noble on May 11, 2022

The telecom market is anything but standardised. Multinational businesses operating across Europe, the Middle East and Africa need to deal with various operators across various countries.

The fragmentation goes beyond country borders. Bill quality and formats, language barriers and currency differences feed into the fragmented nature of the telecom market.
As a result, businesses often struggle to understand their overall telecom spend, driving up unnecessary costs. A robust global technology expense management (TEM) solution can help international companies analyse and manage expense data efficiently by offering full inventory transparency. 

Let's look at the fragmented nature of telecoms in EMEA and the complicated spend management associated, to explore and explain the full utility of TEM software.
