Telecom Lifecycle Management

LinkSource Technologies offers a holistic approach to its Telecom Lifecycle Management. They believe each of the six steps in the lifecycle are interconnected and contribute to the client’s overall Return on Investment (ROI). Not all clients start at the beginning of the lifecycle as some opt for an a la carte approach.

The 6 steps of Telecom Lifecycle Management include:

  1. Audit, Optimization & Inventory
  2. RFP Management
  3. Contract Management
  4. Project Management
  5. Procurement Management
  6. Telecom Expense Management (TEM)

As clients progress through each step of the telecom lifecycle, they not only realize significant savings, they’re able to realize efficiencies through improved processes and policies within their IT environments.
