TEMIA, The Telecom Expense Management Industry Association is making a TEM paper and Request for Proposal, RFP template available for organizations to download from the TEMIA website at no cost.
TEM engagements vary considerably from one client to the next, and solution providers are not all the same. Providers offer tailored solutions for enterprises, but this lack of standards for TEM can make evaluating Telecom Expense Management solutions more difficult. TEMIA’s goal with this TEM RFP and paper on procuring TEM solutions is to streamline the selection process.
Good RFPs enable businesses and government agencies to evaluate competing proposals in an efficient and fair manner. However, the RFP process may also create barriers between customers and potential solution providers. These barriers can block the flow of information and prevent solution providers from responding to customer challenges and evaluation teams from making good decisions.
The RFP template unlocks hidden secrets and provides material that will ensure evaluation teams gather information to select the best supplier for their needs. It will also help them to avoid common mistakes that come from using most RFP templates and standard language that fails to address customization required for successful TEM programs. Organizations that do not plan to issue RFP will also find value in identifying critical things to look for when evaluating TEM solutions providers.
TEMIA has many resources available for organizations. Download the RFP template and paper from the and register for our upcoming webinar, on Mobile Zombie Phones, how to hunt them down, and save money.
