International Non-Profit organizations incur substantial technology and communication expenses that eat into the necessary funds to accomplish their core mission. TEM comes to the rescue to help you get the most from your technology and telecom providers at the right price and free up money to support your core activities.
International Non-profit organizations fulfil a social need with financial support from individuals, government and corporate grants. Yet most International Non-profit organizations run on scarcer financial resources than necessary, creating a permanent strain on financial resources and limiting their operational capabilities.
Also, as corporate CFOs and CIOs struggle with the provisions of accountability regulations and compliancy, many of their counterparts in the non-profit sector are facing similar difficulties to maintain the transparency imposed by their granters and government.
International Non-profit organizations incur the same elevated technology expenses and international communications and telecom infrastructure costs as multinational organizations do, but have limited capability to manage, control and contain these costs.
If your non-profit operates multiple sites, you probably scale a mountain of invoices from service providers for technology, hardware and software, cloud and telecom. Incorrect line item charges, inappropriate service rates and late fees quickly chip away at your bottom line. Convergence can help you get the most from your technology and telecom suppliers at the right price.
That’s where Technology Expense Management and Telecom Expense Management comes to the rescue. Outsourcing of the cumbersome and complex task to manage their telecom environment and control and reduce costs, frees up money that can be redirected to funding for your core mission.
And thanks to the web-based technology Convergence provides, data is readily available worldwide, collaboration across borders is enabled and telecom management processes become streamlined.

Many nonprofit organizations have a size surpassing the size of the average company. With globalization, many are organized across borders and even globally and have all the communication needs a for-profit organization has.
Many non-profits and NGOs have employees and volunteers working around the world, crossing borders whenever necessary to bring assistance. They need to manage and automatically update administration for compliance and make expenses easy for users to file, while reducing the administrative burden for approvers to manually adjust per diems based on location. At the end of the day, many non-profits operate worldwide and require truly global expense management solutions.
Yet they typically don’t have the resources to organize centralized purchasing of their technology and telecom inventory and services.
Hospitals, non-governmental organizations, schools and universities, and associations can benefit from our know how to assess, reduce and manage technology and telecom expenses.
Financial transparency, controlling the cost structures, working with tight budgets and limited resources, recognizing the watchful eye of all concerned in an ever more complex world are all challenges for the sector.
International Non-Profit organizations depend on an hybrid technology infrastructure prone to frequent changes and incur substantial communication expenses while executing their international operations. Managing the central IT infrastructure with cloud and distributed technology resources while keeping costs contained represents a substantial challenge. TEM comes to the rescue when to free up money.
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 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.
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.
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.
