In our digital world, smartphones, tablets, and other forms of mobile technology are now an integrated and vital part of day-to-day operations in any thriving business. As the use of mobile technologies escalates, with all the benefits that come with enterprise mobility, so too does the need to monitor and manage mobile data usage and costs.
These days, managing telecom assets and their related expenses manually can be challenging and quickly become a time drain, with the process of handling the invoices and bills becoming more involved. As the complexity of rate plans becomes ever more involved and when some invoices include thousands of line items and combine equipment costs with service costs, it’s a full-time job to breakdown the costs and pair invoices with an employee’s usage and spend.
