Tangoe, a provider of telecoms expense management (TEM) solutions, has announced an expansion of its advisory services arm, with enterprises being able to optimise their current expense management solutions.

Tangoe Advisory Services has been put together to help enterprises in evaluating their network technology and service provider portfolio, as well as provide ‘insight, guidance and expertise’ to accelerate their network transformations.

The company says the maturation of software-defined wide area technology (SD-WAN) has created an opportunity for organisations to take a look at their networks. This has been noticed in the market; for a start, Cisco acquiring SD-WAN provider Viptela in May last year for a reported $610 million.

The three key elements of Tangoe’s advisory services arm are based around sourcing – getting the highest quality and lowest cost provider contracts for present and future business requirements – transformation, and consulting.

“With Tangoe Advisory Services, we continue to expand our global capabilities in delivering enterprise value to our clients through our best in class approach to sourcing, transformation and consulting services,” said Bob Irwin, CEO of Tangoe in a statement. Rob Whitmore, senior vice president of Tangoe Advisory Services, added the product “combines global industry experts, proven methodologies and unmatched intellectual property to solve these challenges for our enterprise clients.”

Last month, the company secured ISO 9001:2015 certification for its European business, adding it would benefit its various European clients in the public sector, alongside retail, financial services, and healthcare.
