In today's fast-paced business world, most organizations struggle to understand and control their telecom costs. In most cases, it is a lack of knowledge, visibility, time and resources that obstruct any cost-control efforts. Why invest in costly complex reporting tool sets that require hours of training and customization, but that ultimately still leave the reporting and interpretation to you?
When it comes to telecom expense management (TEM), FUEL Analyze™ puts the "M" in TEM. FUEL Analyze provides a comprehensive set of managed analytical services designed to address your TEM needs. FUEL Analyze helps you manage your wireless assets in the most cost efficient way, resulting in measureable results and savings. The service allows you to outsource your TEM needs to an experienced third-party analytical team, and provides you with direct access to a customizable Web-based reporting portal to help you manage your wireless assets in the most cost efficient manner.

Validate invoices against contracts to help dispute any discrepancies.
What-If Scenario Comparisons

Enable yourself to weigh what-If scenarios in case of switching carriers, changing price plans and features, or when calculating the impact of the use of dual SIM or SIM-free devices by frequent travelers.
Maintain and update linkage between wireless hardware, staff, location and organizational business units. Track assets by subscriber line, device, employee, employee number, multiple cost center levels, business unit, department, site and more.
Commitment and upgrade forecasting allows you to maximize the benefits of your churn allowance and early hardware upgrade options, and enables you to make instant decisions with regards to subscriber line re-allocations, suspensions and cancellations.
Increase your end-users' accountability by automatically allocating spend to cost centers and by distributing individualized invoices. Control your end-users through excessive-use and spend notifications to employees and their managers. Leverage your Wireless Analysts' expertise to create and enhance new or existing organizational policies and guidelines for wireless services.
Cost Control Measures
Your Wireless Analyst team helps identify both incidential and chronic issues with your wireless charges, whether they are voice, roaming, long distance, data or premium text usage issues. Through predictive analysis, your Wireless Analyst will keep a close eye on unused, under-utilized and suspended subscriber lines, contract terms and even your spare wireless hardware. Of course FUEL Analyze also monitors your account for overall cost creep from billing errors and unintended account changes.
Governance and Reporting
Your FUEL Analyze service includes monthly bill analyses, invoice and usage reports, and quarterly reviews regarding your wireless assets and the FUEL Analyze service itself. Moreover, all our reports always include pro-active, actionable recommendations that are custom-designed to help you make practical management decisions to save you money.
Advanced Custom Reporting
FUEL Analyze can also offer analysis and interpretation of your cost and usage focused on specific needs. Use your Wireless Analyst team to help you plan for custom wireless initiatives, such as technology refreshes, platform migrations and other wireless projects.
