According to the 2017 PMI Pulse of the Profession, a lack of clear goals is the most common factor (37%) leading to project failure in any industry. Much of this can be explained by organizations attempting to take on projects and tasks well beyond the scope of their internal implementation teams.
Telecommunications projects are no exception. The expertise around managing mobile devices and services properly are outside of many companies’ core competencies. There are three key reasons why your organization should instead outsource these tasks to a firm that specializes in mobile expense management and telecommunications project management: agility, profitability, and efficiency.
Volatility Requires Agility
Telecommunications project management is time consuming, requiring a team capable of wave rolling planning projects, analysis of ever changing regulations and requirements, and constantly shifting timelines and costs, as well as external competition, shifting internal strategies, and the never ending search for more efficient methods and technologies to accomplish business goals.
By partnering with an organization that specializes in telecommunication project management, you remove the need to distract your team with managing such tasks as:
- Mobile Invoices
- Device and Service Plan inventory
- Procurement Workflow
- Bring Your Own Device Stipend Management
Focused Mobile Expense Management = Profitability
If your organization chooses not to outsource the sorts of telecommunications tasks outlined above, you would have to fold these tasks into already complicated and overwhelmed stakeholders across your organization. Depending on the extent of your telecommunications requirements, you risk having to create cross-functional teams capable of managing the various disciplines required. This would bog down otherwise productive individuals and negate any competitive edge.
Increased internal agility of your organization isn’t the only profitable outcome associated with Mobile Expense Management . Experts in telecommunications are able to affect hundreds of thousands of dollars in reduced costs just by sifting through the package cost of the services you’ve purchased and assessing what’s actually being used, and then eliminating unnecessary services and fees.
Inefficient Communication Could Lead to Failure
Unorganized telecommunications programs can lead to isolation between departments and poor communication across project teams. The Project Management Institute’s research shows that of projects that fail, 47% are tied to issues in requirements management, and of those, 75% cite poor communication leading to misplanned requirements. Your organization’s telecommunication strategy must be well-planned, strategically implemented, and seamless throughout.
