Network Control attended the semi-annual TEMIA (Technology Expense Management Industry Association) Conference and came away with new found insight to this growing and evolving industry.
At the conference last week in Orlando, TEMIA celebrated its 10th year anniversary. In 2006, TEMIA was created when many companies were being introduced to the concept of Telecom Expense Management (TEM) struggling with the concept of managing their communication services and expense while working to identify best practices in this area.
The Annual Conference sessions included mobility and fixed telecom breakout sessions, key industry trends, and TEMIA Hall of Fame Induction. In addition, there were forums geared towards identifying key areas that demonstrate value to the enterprises ecosystem. The TEMIA Conference is a valuable opportunity for all TEM industry executives to come together and learn from one another, as well as discuss how all TEM providers can continue to evolve in order to bring the best is class service solutions to companies.
The meeting allows us to openly discuss future trends and best practices within the expanding technology expense management landscape. Additionally, discussions centered on the TEMIA Code of Ethics were reviewed in order to assure members adhere to the TEMIA Associations guiding core values and ethics in order to deliver a the best solution to the enterprise.
In addition to being the CEO of Network Control, I have the privilege of being the Vice President of the TEMIA board. This allows our leadership role in TEMIA to continue to bring value that in turn we deliver to our customers. Being a member in TEMIA provides us the ability to learn about what the market is doing, carrier changes and benchmark our services against industry best practices pushing out continued value to each customer.
Network Control values the TEMIA organization and its efforts to bring standards around ethics and delivery to the enterprise. Working with your competitors can be a challenge, but the success of TEMIA is witnessed by the open and honest dialogue amongst competitors with the key driver being to provide more industry awareness and ethics.
