TEMExpert Business Intelligence and Analytic Intelligence

With TEMExpert Business Intelligence you can track previous spend and usage, capture data from reports and analytics and perform accurate analysis of the health of your organization’s telecom environment.

TEMExpert provides insight and transparency of your expenses.

TEMExpert business intelligence delivers high performance, sophisticated analytics, low cost of ownership, rapid report creation, and superior end user self-service.

Business Intelligence has been a core competency of Convergence since day one. Convergence team members have over 30 combined man years of Business Intelligence experience.

While historical audits to identify overcharges are worthwhile exercises and successful in the short-term, the issue of improving the overall management of telecom expenses is not solved with one time audits, and overcharges and billing errors will occur year after year.

With TEMExpert Business Intelligence you can track previous spend and usage, capture data from reports and analytics and perform accurate analysis of the health of your organization’s telecom environment. Predictive analytics allow your organization to anticipate, to execute trend analysis, and avoid unnecessary expenses. Dashboards with drill-down capabilities provide accurate executive information and deep analysis capabilities, while gauges and graphs support comprehensive, visual analysis.

Locate lines that need disconnecting through exception reporting, identify where electronic data can be used instead of paper, and become more proactive towards the telecom environment in using Convergence TEMExpert Business Intelligence, either as a standalone TEM solution or an Analytic Intelligence solution complementing the TEM operational platform.
