TEM for Local GovernmentManaging distributed telecom assets and expenses serves the common interest

Government bodies such as Cities, Communities, Police, Civil Services, Fire Departments, Hospitals, all have substantial telecommunications infrastructure and an increasingly mobile workforce with pervasive and often critical communication needs.

This results in annual telecom budgets that are growing at the same rate as in any other service industry.

As each service may be too small to support a standalone telecom expense management initiative, very few have already engaged in such a program, leaving them with excess expenses and unmanaged telecom assets.

By decentralized purchasing they miss the opportunity of peer knowledge and experience and remain unaware of the benefits of best of class contracts negotiated by industry experts.

Local and Regional Government can benefit from Telecom Expense Management as much as any other medium size organization, though need a specific approach to maximize their savings.

Typically, government applies public request s for proposals as the instrument of choice or imposed by law to achieve optimum contract terms and conditions.

This approach however has the adverse result of inflexibility, which means that it is hard if not impossible to benefit from ongoing optimization during the contract period, while some operators avoid the hassle of replying to RFP’s and the harsh contract terms that go with supplying public bodies.

Convergence has developed a methodology that substantially improves the financial benefits from RFP based contracting processes and allows at the same time for ongoing spend management.

Our method has been applied to universities, hospitals, cities and other local and regional public services with savings results that are at the same level of our commercial customers and allow for ongoing management and improvement of the telecom budgets.

ur web-enabled TEM software allows centralized management of decentralized telecom inventory and expenses with support from consultants who are familiar with the specific requirements of the government sector.

This frees up budget for the core services local and regional government stands for.
