Annual Telecom Spend



Client was under contract with an incumbent Telecom Expense Management (TEM) provider and was dissatisfied. Services were unaccounted for, cost coding was inaccurate, invoices were unpaid, and there were wireless issues that were taxing their customer service team.


Within the first year, Bluewave:

  • Audited services and uncovered more than 25% missing inventory and 40% inaccurate cost coding

  • 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
