Wavelink Enhances Proactive Telecom Expense Management for Mobile DevicesWavelink Telicost Adds New Features and Richer Reporting to Proactively Manage and Control Data, Voice, SMS and Roaming Usage in Real-Time (January 26, 2012)
SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 01/26/12 -- Wavelink Corporation (www.wavelink.com) today announced enhancements to Wavelink Avalanche Telicost that provide stronger reporting and usage controls to help administrators proactively monitor, analyze and manage data, voice, SMS and roaming usage. This enables businesses to recognize potential overages in real time and analyze usage patterns across carriers and platforms, which can drastically reduce telecom expenses for mobile devices.
As corporations continue to deal with the proliferation of smart devices and wireless WAN devices across their enterprise, it's important for them to incorporate wireless expense management as part of their overall mobile device management strategy.
"Wavelink Telicost enables organizations to take back control of their telecom and wireless expenses by giving them the means to minimize, or even prevent, unanticipated overage and roaming charges from occurring," said Kelly Ungs, senior director of channels for Wavelink. "In most cases, a company will see a return on their investment after just one or two months of eliminating carrier overage charges and bringing their plans into alignment with actual usage."
Real-time telecom expense management from Wavelink goes beyond traditional TEM (telecom expense management) tools that allow customers to analyze past billing data. With Wavelink Telicost, organizations can see real-time network and data usage and proactively manage their telecom and wireless costs. Geofencing allows administrators to monitor and manage where devices can be used and control the movement of the workforce. Mobile phone users and network administrators can be alerted when devices are potentially about to incur higher costs associated with roaming, plan overages and large data transfers or when they switch to radically different or changing usage patterns or move outside their assigned work zones.
In addition to being able to monitor data, voice and text usage, administrators can now access deeper reporting and usage control capabilities. This includes alerts and controls for international roaming, the ability to manage multiple devices that are part of a pooled minutes plan, and reports on application data usage showing how much data is consumed per application in order to evaluate actual data needs.
Wavelink Telicost is now available through Wavelink and its partners. It can be used in conjunction with Wavelink Avalanche or as a standalone solution. For more information about Wavelink Telicost, please visit http://www.wavelink.com/p/expense-management.
