The AMI products and services provide technology and expense management solutions that are scalable for small business needs to multinational corporate needs. The services are designed to fit within our client’s environment to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
Our temNOW™ service encompasses the technology, processes, policies, and people needed to support a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. For any invoice management system, be it technology or energy, there needs to be a software platform to help inventory your assets (e.g., circuits, meters, equipment, locations, etc.), enforce business processes (e.g., ordering, approving, problem resolution), and manage access to critical infrastructure information. The processes are all the business rules that govern how the infrastructure will be deployed, managed, and eventually dismantled or converted. The policy is the corporate buy-in and ultimately the enforcement of the processes that will ensure the integrity of the solution. The people are the experts in facilities or telecom or leases that follow the methodologies and use the software to deploy, manage, and decommission services.
Our Expense Management Engine brings together silos of technology, data, and people into one centralized and collaborative system where all the participants are linked and ultimately different systems can talk together via a hosted application: ordering integrates to inventory, inventory integrates to invoicing, ticketing integrates to inventory, contracts with associated SLAs integrate with invoice compliance, and so on. Our Expense Management Engine also brings a standardized set of best practice repeatable processes to the organizations using it.
AMI Strategies recognizes the importance of “managing the data” so that the information produced by temNOW™ is meaningful. Therefore, the hosted application is offered as a managed service so that the AMI team of experts can maintain the responsibility of data integrity from contracts, inventory and invoice perspectives.
Wireless has become extremely visible in the marketplace today because it costs ten times more to manage wireless devices than landlines. AMI Strategies has become proficient in managing these invoices and offering ancillary services around this costly activity.
Our professional services have provided the opportunity to work with hundreds of Global Fortune 2000 companies to deliver Best Practice Solutions using its seasoned Professional Service Team. The work products within our Professional Services practice are vast. They include developing a telecom management strategy using best practices that balances technology, process engineering, and people. With the vast client base, AMI has the ability to benchmark pricing leveraging market knowledge and industry expertise. This is particularly relevant in the fluid wireless environments and performing carrier contract negotiations.
The “Now” Family of Services was created to ease the risk of trying TEM, Auditing, Wireless Help Desk Services or MDM from a financial and contractual perspective and allow you to prototype it in your environment.
“Over the past four years, AMI Strategies’ consultative approach has saved
our company well over a hundred thousand dollars. They will sometimes recommend
a solution to us that won’t generate them much money, but it’s the best solution
for us. Through this approach, they’ve cultivated a long-term relationship with
us, making them more a partner than a vendor.”
-Bill Rozek, Chief
Financial Office, Budco
