We recently came across a report from McKinsey, which detailed what modern business leaders should be doing to build more efficient IT organisations. Acknowledging that the role of IT and the CIO has changed drastically, the report outlined five enabling capabilities that were a focus for highly efficient businesses.
Theses five capabilities being:
- Centralising cost management
- Managing demand for IT based on business value
- Controlling productivity and creating initiatives to promote it
- Standardising simplifying and automating processes
- Optimise sourcing
At Nebula, we focus on streamlining your telecoms environment so that you can do business better. Here’s how we think our telecoms lifecycle management software and expertise promote all of the core capabilities highlighted by McKinsey.
Centralising cost management: Gone are the days when your entire telecoms bill was sent to you as one hard-to-digest entity. At the time, it was even harder to make sure that costs were recovered from respective cost centres or to check if service providers were billing you correctly. Using our telecoms lifecycle management software platform, OneView, all your bills are verified and recharged to costs centres within you business automatically. This makes it easier to assign bills to different cost centres and accurately track your spend.
Managing demand for IT based on business value: Businesses want to make investments with the greatest rewards. It’s our job to guarantee that your telecoms environment is tailored to best suit your business needs. Enterprises have to continuously make sure they’re using the right infrastructure. One way to do so is identifying and eliminating any redundant infrastructure. This is an easy way to cut unnecessary costs.
Controlling productivity and creating initiatives to promote it: In order for your employees to do their jobs to the best of their ability, they need the right tools. We’ll help you find the ideal packages and resources for each employee. For example, a sales person who is always on the phone with customers needs a package that makes allowances for this usage to ensure they’re optimally productive.
Standardising simplifying and automating processes: Imagine having to sift through extensive spreadsheets to allocate different charges to different departments or verify bill costs and perform IMACDs with a long paper trail. In a large company with thousands of employees, this could take days. Using OneView, these processes are automated. Saving time and freeing up resources to focus on other tasks.
Optimise sourcing: Negotiating with service providers can be intimidating. We’ll assist you in these negotiations to secure the best rates. Service providers often provide optimised packages for corporate clients and these can drastically reduce costs. You can also use OneView to test out different solutions and help you select the most suitable option before actually committing to a contract or service.
