The recent evolution of network speeds, technology, smart devices and BYOD have all increased the difficulty for telecoms budget holders to report and understand how people use communications technology at work. This is also impacted by the increasing data burden on mobile and Wi-Fi networks technology and tariffs.
That’s why we’ve developed our specialist management platform, Olive Business Manager (OBM), which we combine with a set of device management tools. This allows our customers to understand and clearly see how actual usage tracks against the contract or tariff, react as necessary, or apply controls as required..
OBM presents headline exception reporting and disseminates billing information through your organisational structure. Cost centre schedules and itemised information in relation to usage is all summarised in detail, which is then cascaded to relevant budget holders or stakeholders.
Budget holders can then view and use that information to manage the behaviour of their direct reports, or choose to use it as a cost approval or reallocation system. The system can also be used to create import journals for finance teams to improve cost allocation.
Device management is essential to proper management of an estate of mobile smart devices and particularly to complement a BYOD strategy. Olive aggregates several of the leading MDM solutions to provide a comprehensive and powerful managed device management capability.
