Telecom Expense Management Firm, vCom Solutions, Certified as a Green Business

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 27, 2012) - vCom Solutions, the pioneer of Telecom Management as a Service (TMaaS), today announced that it has been named a Certified Green Business through the Bay Area Green Business Program. This certification is a result of demonstrating full compliance with local environmental regulatory agencies and taking action to conserve resources and protect the environment. vCom will be honored in a recognition ceremony before the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors in April.

"Pursuing our Green Certification was a no brainer for vCom," said Sameer Hilal, Chief Operating Officer and head of the Green Committee. "The service we provide is inherently green, because we take the hundreds of paper invoices that our customers receive from multiple telecom carriers across the country, and boil them down into one electronic invoice. This not only saves our clients paper, but also eliminates the need for archiving, scanning and sending documents around for approvals. All of this is handled in our vManager® software, which then provides a simple, transparent view into all of their telecom services and activity."

But the biggest change that vCom made was converting its paper billing of customers, which used 13,000 pieces of paper monthly, to an electronic billing process. One of the biggest challenges they faced in doing this was the initial resistance by customers to receiving paperless bills. They worked with clients to provide custom reports to make their accounting processes easier, and ultimately all of their customers felt that they got the data they needed more efficiently after the transition to paperless.

"I think that it is important to strike a balance between your fiduciary responsibility and doing something that will help future generations," says Hilal. "We decided that doing the right thing for our kids was ultimately a bargain."
