RadiusPoint© Promotes Adoption of Telecommunications Management as New Industry Term | Orlando, FL, February 21, 2013 

RadiusPoint© is a multi-solution provider of expense management services for telecom, IT, utilities, energy, and loss prevention invoices and expenses. RadiusPoint© is promoting the adoption of a new broad umbrella term to describe the telecom expense management industry: Telecommunications Management. 

Telecommunications Management is meant to convey all the activities enterprises manage as part of overseeing their mobile and fixed telecommunications network. It includes savings, visibility and control for global communications services, Telecom Expense Management, TEM, Communications Lifecycle Management, Wireless Expense Management, WEM, Mobile Device Management, MDM, data and device security. 

“With most every company needing some form of a TEM solution, the TEMIA approach of adopting a broad model will allow those companies to more easily identify their telecom management needs,” stated Sharon Watkins, CEO of RadiusPoint©. “TEMIA’s use of the new phrase will allow these companies to have a better understanding of the services that are offered by the TEMIA members for a well-rounded approach to the management of their telecom expenses and services.” 

TEMIA is asking its members and market participants to adopt Telecommunications Management and use it on their websites and in sales presentations as a new broad umbrella term to describe the industry. Joe Basili, managing director for TEMIA stated, “Adoption of this phrase provides an opportunity for firms to re-position themselves in a more strategic role with customers, expressing value beyond cost savings into performance.” He added, “We want to tell enterprises, if you do not have Telecommunications Management you are missing out; you are not getting the most value from your network nor are you running it most efficiently from a cost and performance perspective. 


In 2006, many of the largest Telecom Expense Management (TEM) solution providers established The Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA). 

TEMIA’s ongoing mission is to raise awareness, to improve the quality and value of solutions and to cultivate shared industry knowledge for Telecommunications Management, Telecom Expense Management, TEM, Wireless Expense Management WEM, and Mobile Device Management MDM solutions. TEMIA seeks to do this through the development and promotion of open industry standards, and industry knowledge among solutions providers, business partners, telecom service providers, and enterprise clients. Further, TEMIA members subscribe to a Code of Ethics, which clearly differentiates their level of commitment to their clients.
