Tangoe, Inc., a leading global provider of enterprise communications lifecycle management software and technology-enabled services for fixed and mobile communications, today announced that the company achieved a milestone of more than 750,000 mobile devices under management by its technology and service solutions. Representing a dramatic acceleration in wireless-related new business, the industry-leading milestone was achieved in Q1 — a record-breaking quarter in which more than 50 percent of the company’s thirty-three direct and indirect closed sales engagements focused in part, or wholly, on enterprise wireless device management.
Recent industry analyst reports revealed that the growth rate of wireless expense management (WEM) — the fastest growing telecom expense management segment — is soon expected to double that of fixed enterprise communications. Capitalizing on this expected growth in WEM, Tangoe’s new business adoption rates reflect the company’s ability to remain ahead of industry trends by anticipating and responding to evolving market needs.
As a result of the dramatic growth of wireless mobile communications and data devices, organizations are increasingly faced with challenges to manage their mobile assets. In response, Tangoe unveiled its CommCare(TM) technology-enabled services offering for mobile communications in 2007. Designed to address the unique challenges of the mobile enterprise environment, CommCare’s mobile solution offerings span the complete range of functionality and services required to ensure optimal financial and process management including; mobile policy development and enforcement, mobile contract negotiations, device procurement and fulfillment, invoice and inventory management, rate assurance testing, mobile plan optimization, inventory management, and reporting. As an integrated suite of offerings, CommCare provides a best-of-breed, single source solution for optimizing operational efficiencies, mitigating risk, and slashing costs for both fixed, mobile, and converged enterprise communications.
Underscoring the growing need for adopting a lifecycle approach to enterprise-wide mobile management, Ralph Rodriguez, senior vice president of technology research at Aberdeen Group, introduced Aberdeen’s recent WEM benchmark report, “Execute on Wireless Expense Management to Drive ROI,” by saying: “Mobility deployments and their ongoing management require a holistic lifecycle approach to cost reduction. This is because mobile devices are distinct within the enterprise and are inherently un-tethered, giving them distinct obsolescence issues while being truly mission-critical to the end-user. Because of this, enterprises must look for every opportunity to drive down wireless costs. Best-in-Class organizations recognize the value of wireless spend visibility and are creating new ways of reducing the total cost of their mobility deployments.”
“Achieving this three-quarter of a million mobile device milestone is clearly an achievement we’re proud of. As we rapidly approach the one million device mark in the months ahead, we remain focused on delivering value to Tangoe’s expanding client base,” commented Tangoe president and CEO Al Subbloie. “By leveraging patented technologies and vast domain expertise, Tangoe’s mobility solution offerings have enabled clients to gain better understanding and control of their mobile communications infrastructure, and their associated costs.”
