International Telecom Expense Management Capabilities

With Convergence’s International Telecom Expense Management Capabilities, multi-national and global organizations not only can benefit from centralized contract management, but also centralize their invoice, inventory and expense management, and can optimize each country’s spend, independent from the operator's geographical footprints.

Manage Telecom Expenses Internationally to maximize savings.

International and global companies have for a long time struggled with the need to manage their telecom inventory, contracts and invoices in a centralized way. Some forward thinking companies have at least centralized the contract management processes, while most have accepted the realities of heterogeneous markets and managed telecom in a distributed way, forfeiting the benefits of global visibility into their telecom expenses.


Achieve centralized management of your international TEM.

No provider has an EMEA-wide or Global network, while some mobile providers merely rely on master agreements bundling per country agreements, which still are executed with each country’s subsidiary or partner operator, depriving large telecom users from the benefits of their size.

Convergence’s TEM solutions bring resolve to this quagmire for international telecom management.

With Convergence’ International Telecom Expense Management Capabilities, now multi-national and global organizations not only can benefit from centralized contract management, but also centralize their invoice, inventory and expense management, and can optimize each country’s spend, independent from the operator(s) geographic footprint.

As Europe’s leading provider of telecom expense management services and solutions, most of Convergence’s TEM projects are executed on an international scale and bring the benefits of centralized management with local operations to multi-national and global organizations.

This brings true centralized and distributed visibility and control to fixed voice, mobile voice and data en data communications management inside and outside EMEA and independent of telecom operator, country, language, currency. Invoices are managed in both electronic and paper formats.

International Capabilities

International and global companies have for a long time struggled with the need to manage their telecom inventory, contracts and invoices in a centralized way. Some forward thinking companies have at least centralized the contract management processes, while most have accepted the realities of heterogeneous markets and managed telecom in a distributed way, forfeiting the benefits of global visibility into their telecom expenses.


Technology Expense Management provides in solutions that increase visibility, improve management and streamline control of enterprise-wide costs for connectivity, mobility, hardware, software and cloud services.

In most organizations, finance, IT, and Telecom support teams simply do not have the time, resources or the necessary experience and tools to effectively manage monthly technology expenses on an ongoing basis.

"CIOs and other technology managers face turbulent times where both economic and accounting challenges will drive the need to control costs, either as part of a sustained cost-reduction effort or to act as responsible financial stewards for digitally-drive businesses."

Cloud Management (CEM)

Cloud Expense Management has become the next frontier in managing Technology Expenses. Shadow IT and decentralized, self-service cloud services easuliy get out of control. Teams are setting up their own cloud services, bypassing the IT department and  organizational budget controls, while putting sensitive data at risk of breach, causing compliance risks and already lead to huge cost inefficiencies in most organisations.

IT Asset & Cost Management

Organizations are under pressure to keep track of actual IT costs and the business value of IT investments. Visibility into the cost of services is challenging and control difficult as financial data is scattered across the organization. IT Asset and Cost Management keeps track of the financial costs. It provides insight into what is being spent, and where and why costs are being incurred through analytics and reporting. 

Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT represents a new challenge in Technology Expense Management. It helps in process optimization, better production planning and control, supply chain restructuring, efficient asset utilization, product quality improvement, faster service delivery and customer service satisfaction. While it brings cost efficiencies, organizations need to track these costs and their impact through integration in TEM programs.
