The cost associated with global communications networks, including the purchase of telecommunications services, remains a major driver of IT expenditures for enterprises. A key goal of all IT leaders is to ensure that such expenses are minimized, without a resulting diminution in quality, as expenses consumed on telecom reduce the funds available for other strategic technology initiatives. Optimizing telecom expense is especially challenging for multi-national organizations that must manage complex, global networks from a single hub or headquarters location, or that outsource their network needs to large telecom service providers.

Telecom expense management firms (TEMS) and consultants often help enterprises manage telecom expenses, usually focusing on inventory management, contracting for network services, verification and the audit of monthly bills. However, notwithstanding their strong skills and expertise, TEMs and consultants still require ongoing access to current tariff data, benchmarking statistics and the latest industry trends and practices in order to maximize the benefits they bring to their enterprise clients.
