The webinar, which features a unique panel discussion format, will explore the critical challenges enterprises face as they confront the proliferation of mobile devices and services while detailing emerging solutions including a groundbreaking self-service approach from Xigo, the cloud-based solution that simplifies managing enterprise telecommunications costs.

Mobile devices play a crucial role in every facet of an enterprises business operations and are must have productivity tools, said Lane Cooper, editorial director of BizTechReports and webinar moderator. He added, It is vital that enterprises develop a mobile expense management strategy now since this challenge is not going away and will only grow larger and more complex in the coming years.

Mobile expense management (MEM) was once considered a minor sub-set of larger enterprise-wide telecom expense management (TEM) solutions, but with more than 40% growth rates, MEM now has a much more prominent place in a companys overall telecommunications lifecycle management strategy. Yesterdays telecom expense management solutions are simply not appropriate for the fast-moving world of mobile technology, said David Snow, CMO of Xigo. Cloud-based solutions that can be rapidly deployed at nominal (if any) upfront fee provide flexibility and adaptability two key attributes of a successful solution for mobile expense management.

Typical TEM engagements take up to 18 months before any return on investment (ROI) is realized; that is nearly the entire lifecyle of a mobile device. Hear from David Snow and Mark Pownell, Xigos vice president of user experience, how the ability to implement a MEM-specific solution in minutes, and then instantly receive spend analysis, enables enterprise users to better assess and leverage their mobility strategy for improved savings.
