Corrected inaccurate cost coding
Set up a workable and efficient wireless helpdesk
Identified more than $40,000 in disputed expenses within the first four months of the TEM process
Continued savings realized through the years at an average of 15%
Identified every location and produced a consistent and accurate list of every entity that had phone service
Through a missing bills procedure, uncovered 20% of unpaid invoices
Consolidated their wireless accounts
Brought all invoices up to date and eliminated all late payment charges
