LinkSource Technologies Partners With Tangoe

Comprehensive Telecom Expense Management Solution Maximizes Savings for Enterprise Clients

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwired - November 06, 2013) - LinkSource Technologies, a technology solutions company offering managed services in voice and data, mobility, cloud, IT support and procurement, has partnered with Tangoe (NASDAQ: TNGO) to offer enterprise clients world-class telecommunications expense management (TEM) services through the LinkSource TotalTEM solution.

TEM software captures a business' wireless and wireline plans and service costs, including devices and equipment, to allow for the thorough review and streamlining of key processes. By better managing inventory, invoices and reporting, enterprise companies are able to significantly reduce and control expenses. By adding expert hands-on management, businesses can further impact their telecommunications expenses and optimize the capabilities of the software.

Backed by LinkSource's expertise and experience, the LinkSource TotalTEM solution utilizes Tangoe's top-of-the-line software to provide a managed white-glove service to fully impact telecom expenses. The company manages the entire plan inventory and lifecycle, along with vendor relationships and vendor contracts, to ensure telecom services and processes are efficient and cost-effective, often reducing spend by up to 30 percent.

"LinkSource TotalTEM eliminates the frustration often felt by businesses as they use the right TEM tools but lack the experience, expertise and relationships to fully impact their bottom line," said Curt Lewis, president and CEO of LinkSource Technologies. "By partnering with Tangoe, we are able to offer enterprise companies a comprehensive solution for maximizing savings and finding the most appropriate telecom solution. We start with a full audit and go from there -- always providing the hands-on expertise you aren't able to get from software alone."

Tangoe is a leading global provider of Communications Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and services for enterprise clients, providing customers with an on-demand suite of software designed to manage and optimize the complex processes and expenses associated with the telecom lifecycle for both fixed and mobile communications assets and services. Founded in 2000, Tangoe supports more than 1,200 global clients through direct sales, resellers and strategic partnerships with more than 92 communications invoice receipt centers and more than 15 offices around the globe.

Services provided though the LinkSource and Tangoe partnership include a telecommunications audit, rate plan optimization, inventory management, provisioning, reporting, invoice management, call rebilling and support services. The LinkSource audit is unique because, unlike other audits offered by managed service providers, it includes both domestic and global carriers, plans and devices, increasing the opportunity to impact cost savings. LinkSource also offers RFP support through their proprietary RFP management software, DirectRFP, as well as wireless expense management (WEM) and an international calling solution through RingPath, a proprietary product that integrates mobile phones into the enterprise communication network.

"Tangoe is a leading provider of Communications Lifecycle Management software and services, helping customers around the globe manage and optimize the complex processes and expenses associated with their fixed and mobile communications assets and services," said Al Subbloie, president and CEO of Tangoe. "LinkSource's experience managing and optimizing these complex processes and expenses and their familiarity with the telecom industry as a whole, makes them an ideal partner."

LinkSource is a Microsoft Preferred Partner, and offers managed solutions in cloud, voice and data, mobility, desktop support and procurement services for both enterprise and small- to medium-sized businesses.
