10 Customers Surveyed; 10 Reasons to Use Mobile Expense Management

There is no better proof of concept than a customer’s success.  Fortunately for MobilSense we have had the good fortune to not only partner with but facilitate great success for our customers.  While expense management is certainly a focus for most companies, we have found mobile expense management typically isn’t treated with the same sense of importance.  Why?  Companies typically pick over-inflated rate plans to prevent overage and if they don’t see spikes in their usage they assume everything is okay.  In other words, if the budget is consistent companies think everything must be fine with their mobile spending.  The problem with that concept is it couldn’t be further from the truth.  In fact, out of the all the companies we support, every one of them found substantial savings not only from mismanaged plans but from a long list of other cost details that were percolating below the radar.

What’s that old Huey Long program?  Share the Wealth?  By reading how our customers obtained success through mobile cost management, my hope is others will identify with their pain points and take advantage of the tremendous cost savings and process efficiency mobile expense management software solutions like ours offers.  Sharing the wealth!

Truly a No-Brainer

The meaning of no-brainer: ‘something that requires no thought before deciding.’ You could be wondering why I would begin my blog with a definition of ‘no-brainer.’ I’m glad you asked. It’s the one term that comes to mind when describing our mobile expense management solution, MobilSentry™. You see, the amount of effort it takes in comparison to the savings results it yields literally requires very little to no thought before deciding to purchase, aka ‘no-brainer.’

MobilSentry™ is a mobile cost management solution that pays for itself in three months making it virtually budget neutral. When you factor in one of its key features, that is knowing exactly how much your company will save in advance of your purchase, the cost risk is literally removed. I mean, all it takes to find out if you’re overpaying your mobile carrier is to simply upload your invoices, or we can do it for you, and voilà! Without purchasing anything up front, you know within hours if your company is overpaying your carriers. I would like to let you in on a little secret; most companies are overpaying which solidifies the case for my ‘no-brainer’ moniker.

What if ease of use and cost savings isn’t necessarily your top priority when processing all those mobile invoices. It’s highly unlikely there’s a company out there who doesn’t want to save money, but let’s say removing non-business usage and waste is your top priority. What if you knew that by using MobilSentry™ you could reduce your monthly carrier invoices while also identifying individuals that are overusing data? Not only identify abuse, but remove it with policy monitoring?

What if you could find:

  • A mobile cost management solution that would pay for itself in three months
  • You would know exactly how much savings in advance of purchasing
  • It would provide significant usage oversight and policy monitoring
  • What if your return on investment continues to multiply after three months?

What would you have to determine for this to be your experience?

  • Understand our information privacy policy or sign a non-disclosure
  • Provide three months of your carrier billing data (temporarily share your login or provide three months of carrier invoice PDF files)

How quickly would I know:

  • We can load your data the same day we receive it
  • We can provide an estimate within two days of loading your data

See what I mean?  Truly a no-brainer!  What do you have to lose?
