Optimising enterprise mobility expenditure involves a strategic approach that targets various aspects of your mobility infrastructure and policies. Here are Eight steps to consider:
- Inventory Management: Maintain an up-to-date inventory of all mobile devices, contracts, and services. Knowing what you have is the first step towards managing it effectively.
- Audit and Validate Expenses: Regularly review and audit your mobility bills to detect discrepancies or unnecessary charges. Ensure that your organisation is not being overcharged and that you're only paying for services you use.
- Implement a Telecom Expense Management (TEM) Solution: TEM solutions can automate the process of auditing and validating expenses, managing inventory, and optimising costs. They provide detailed visibility into your mobility spending, helping you identify areas of waste and potential savings.
- Negotiate with Providers: Regularly review your contracts with mobile service providers and negotiate better rates whenever possible. Leverage your business size and relationship to secure discounts.
- Implement Usage Policies: Develop clear usage policies for your employees. Define acceptable use, and set limits on data usage to prevent excess charges.
- Consider Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Policy: A BYOD policy allows employees to use their own devices for work purposes. This can result in significant cost savings, as the company doesn't need to purchase devices. However, BYOD also brings its own challenges, particularly in terms of data security and privacy.
- Regularly Update and Upgrade Devices: Older devices may require more maintenance, be insecure and consume more energy. Regularly updating and upgrading your devices can save significant costs over time and reduce your security risk.
- Train Employees: Train employees on how to use their devices efficiently and avoid behaviours that might result in extra charges, such as using excessive data when travelling.
- Benchmarking and Comparison: Research and compare rates and services from different providers to ensure you're getting competitive rates for the services you need.
Remember, each organisation is unique, so developing a strategy that meets your specific needs and circumstances is essential. It can be beneficial to work with a Managed Mobility Services provider who can help you manage and optimise your mobility spending.
