Wireless expense and asset management? What's the difference?

Sep 7th 2015 at 3:36 AM

When reviewing your current spending on mobile devices, it can be very tempting to look into the aggregated line item and base your decision-making and budgets off of that, or on a longer term basis the trend in the change of price when it comes to your 'wireless' costs. The major downside of this is the fact that it only makes sense when you analyze the costs associated with each part of your wireless plan, including the costs of wireless devices, and integrate it with your IT costs to manage these devices over time.

The first step is to separate it all out, because understanding your wireless expense and asset management costs separately is a great first step toward managing them as a whole, and this can give you a greater look through into the costs associated with your plan itself. If you're having trouble running a proper analysis on your costs to identify certain areas that could be optimized, then talk to a company called Mobilsense. They are a firm that is dedicated to helping companies understand and optimize their costs, and they do so with the help of a number of software products, including their cornerstone telecom expense management software suite.

This software suite helps you to break out costs associated with the plan, changes to that plan cost over time, and it also helps you see where your employees may be going over their plan limits, requiring that you pay data overages that can easily be avoided. Additionally, they can help you figure out if you are paying to much for your plan in general, by benchmarking your plan against companies who have similar needs. This is another key part of the process, because you can only optimize your plan so much, and if you are paying too high a price for your plan in the first place, then you will still end up with a plan that is too expensive regardless of optimization.
