Do you know how much you’re really spending on telecom every year? What if you could see the hidden costs, know what inventory you have, where that inventory is located, and why you have it?
There’s no way to know the answers to these questions unless you can see your company’s complete inventory at every location in one place—a single display of accurate, real-time usage data from all your telecom vendors. But that would require a costly and time-consuming telecom mapping project. In addition, doing this manually allows the potential for errors and oversights.
Or would it?
With new automated telecom mapping technology, you can get that data within 24 hours, depending on the complexity of your portal setup. This technology works through an API that connects to all your telecom providers’ online systems. It displays all the data as a single network map that lets you see the type of connection, the costs, and where each item is located in real-time. This eliminates time-consuming inventory management and telecom mapping, giving you fast and accurate access to locations, circuits, telephone numbers and more.
In fact, you can search for almost any telecom data you need, including up-to-date circuit IDs, telephone numbers, street addresses, bandwidth and more.
With this automated telecom mapping solution, you get a complete view of all telecom services across all your locations. For instance, you may discover that even though Rome claimed that they were completely converted to VoIP, in reality only 60 percent of employees there are using it. You can see what plans and telephone numbers are connected to each office and find out what percentage of employees are still using POTs (plain-old telephones).
This eliminates the task of mapping your own network, making life much easier for your IT team.
The ability to search for the telecom information you need, knowing that it’s current and accurate, and the rapid, tailored inventory mapping this new technology offers, has the potential to transform the telecom industry with its efficiency and accuracy.
