Mobile Device Management Services: Telecom Expense Management Expands Into An Adjacent Market | The Global TEM market | Scoop.it
Chris Simandl's insight:

Despite references to Tangoe: I'm interested in the second point in this article: pricing, and value-perceptions.

As I understand: todays monthly rates (For a company with 1000 devices) are around:
$4 device for Invoice ingestion/managment services;
$4 device for invoice dispute/arbitration services;
$4 device for MDM & Help Desking type of services;

Who actually determines & sets these levels? the Sales group? the Service Mgmt. Group? the Finance Group? hmmm.
