PROACTIS Signs Partnership with Efftel to Manage Telecom Expenses
PROACTIS, a global Spend Control and eProcurement solution provider today announced a new partnership with Efftel, a specialist in Telecom and Mobile Expense Management services, to help organisations improve control and reduce cost of all spend with communications suppliers.
"For most companies, fixed and mobile communications services are among the top five business expenses, but they often do a poor job of managing processes related to telecoms spending" said Simon Dadswell, Marketing Director, PROACTIS. "Allowing your organisation to spend that tail-end of expenditure with little or no sourcing support or billing and inventory analysis clearly results in paying higher prices."
Services from Efftel that support procurement of telecom and mobile expenditure include: analysis of current billing data, benchmarking of current rates against companies of similar size and profile, analysis of supplier pricing bids, tariff compliance and inventory management.
"PROACTIS is a recognised market leader in Spend Control and eProcurement solutions and our services offer complementary value added benefits for clients" said Efftel's Managing Director, David Rosenthal. "Efftel's services enable procurement organisations to achieve significant savings on mobile and landline expenditure by enabling management and control on all aspects - inventory, usage, call patterns, contracts, benchmarking and billing data - whilst ensuring savings are maintained over the long term."
Efftel specialist category and managed services will be incorporated as part of the PROACTIS Tail-Spend Management platform, enabling Finance and Procurement teams to target noncore spend in a sustainable way.
Using a combination of technology, services and partners, the PROACTIS Tail-Spend Management platform is designed to help organisations improve control and reduce cost of all spend with all suppliers. The focus is on providing the tools to: increase the range of spend 'under management', reduce the volume of suppliers, orders and invoices where possible, and much more efficiently manage the remaining volume of suppliers, orders and invoices associated with tail spend.
