LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENTWe track the life cycle of equipment, data center utilization, circuits, carrier contracts, maintenance agreements, and other assets and contracts so you don’t overpay.
KEEPING A WATCHFUL EYE ON YOUR TELECOM & IT ASSETS
Will you incur significant financial risks if you track your technology assets and service contracts on your own? Providers’ invoices can be incomprehensible. Maintenance contracts may auto-renew on assets no longer being used. Equipment or circuits may be abandoned (but still incur charges) when companies change locations.
It can be worse: Some companies don’t even know what they have, what’s expiring this month, whether they have redundant service contracts from multiple vendors, what they bought last year, where contracts are physically located, or what numbers to call when there’s a problem.
This information may be tracked on spreadsheets and be out of date. Responsibility for tracking information may be distributed among multiple employees — knowledge that can be lost when employees quit or retire.
