Welcome Aboard – November 2015

excitement!

What’s more exciting than managing your telecom spend?

Nothing, am I right? Well, at least that’s our hope. (Just pretend we’re a witty flight attendant with a great pre-flight speech, and this will all go much more smoothly.)

So sit back, relax and we’ll take you through some need-to-know info in the telecom space. (Snacks and drinks are up to you, though.)

BYOD = Bring Your Own Disaster?

Smart devices, like cell phones and tablets (and even laptops) are helping lots of companies stay better connected and mobile. But if you’re allowing employees to use their own devices for company business – aka bring your own device (BYOD) – how can you be sure that they’re secure? (Spoiler alert: Your IT department is probably shuddering at the thought right this moment.)

So do you feel like you’re stuck between chaining your employees to their desks (not literally, we hope) and risking your company with unsecured personal tech?

Fear not – there’s another option that could be the answer: choose your own device (CYOD). Employees get to pick an approved company-provided device, pre-loaded with all the security software and operating systems to keep a technology disaster from striking.

What now?

Ask us about BYOD vs. CYOD – we’ll help you find the balance between security and productivity that’s just right for your organization.

We heart analytics

And we think you will, too, when we know what they can do for you and your business.

When you put your temNOW Analytics to work, you’ll get:

  • Cloud-based, self-service analytics – get the info you need, wherever and whenever you need to access it.
  • Real-time interactive visualization – actually see the impact your telecom spend is making on your business, right now
  • Zero software footprint – no more clunky solutions to deploy, update and manage
  • The ability to add and customize dashboards and 70+ reports – because Executive A wants to see something different than Board Member B
  • The sweet, sweet slumber of a CFO / CIO / executive manager whose mind is at rest, knowing all this info is available at the drop of a hat

Analytics are our thing, and you get all the benefits – get in touch with us and we’ll show you the light.

 

Great to “cross” paths with you!

Call us old-fashioned, but we still believe it’s a personal touch – and the occasional in-person visit – that makes the difference between a vendor and a true business partner.

Here’s some of our leadership team on a recent visit to Washington, D.C., to catch up with the American Red Cross. Look for us at an office near you.
