TEM SOFTWARE CAPABILITIES

We tirelessly look for ways to make telecom management as efficient as possible by automating tasks and processes. The robust capabilities of Asentinel make it perfectly suited to meet the TEM needs of enterprises:

  • In a post-Asentinel deployment, EDI as an invoicing medium represents the significant majority of our clients’ volume. With Custom Imports and Optical Invoice Recognition (OIR), all of your voice, data and equipment invoices are electronic and automated. No more CD’s, paper invoices or carrier website files– 100% of your invoices are in the Asentinel application.
  • Asentinel delivers a comprehensive and flexible medium to align your staff and its corresponding workflow and hierarchy with a sophisticated audit engine. This ensures validity of charges, tariffs, inventory, variance and configurable business rules.
  • The Audit and Optimization engine not only delivers historical and go-forward ROI, but creates a dispute communication medium and discipline with your vendors to ensure long-term stability and permanent expense management.
  • With enterprise integrations to all AP/GL and mainframe systems; as well as HR, Email and Active Directory/LDAP/SSO/SAML; Web services-based communications are all automated.
  • The relational database will serve as the one enterprise-wide central repository of all telecom assets: Voice (wireline and wireless), Data and Equipment.
  • With unlimited Customer-Defined Fields (CDF’s), you can track, query and report on every asset and its corresponding detail. Information retrieved may include which cellular devices are due for a technology upgrade, how many wireless users ordered accessories, etc.
  • Asentinel accommodates the dynamic nature of MACD’s. All change management activities are clearly communicated to the vendor and tracked to completion. Inventory, invoice processing, audit and optimization metrics, web-based reporting and BI are updated concurrently.
  • Asentinel serves as the medium between you and the vendor/carrier, ensuring a consistent structure and process for all orders involving voice, data or equipment services.
  • Optional eBonding supports bi-directional Provisioning with Major Carriers.
  • One comprehensive, configurable and flexible interface for reports and performance management.
  • Based on user rights and organizational hierarchy; often linked with AD/LDAP/SSO/SAML.
  • Reports can be named, saved, viewed, scheduled, exported to Excel or HTML, converted to a PDF, or auto-distributed.
  • Manage all vendors and contracts from a singular database.
  • Includes contacts, communications, commitments, compliance, disputes, notifications, images, orders, rates, schedules, authorized services, remittance and aging.

Tangoe to be combined with Asentinel to create a market leader

LOS ANGELES & ORANGE, Conn. & MEMPHIS, Tenn. April 28, 2017 — Marlin Equity Partners (“Marlin”), a global investment firm, announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all outstanding shares of Tangoe, Inc. (OTCPK:TNGO) (“Tangoe”) for $6.50 per share in cash. Tangoe is a global leader in telecom expense management (“TEM”) solutions that enable enterprises to manage and optimize spend across multiple IT categories by providing visibility into the complex processes associated with their assets and expenses.

“After careful consideration and deliberation, our Board of Directors concluded that the sale of Tangoe to Marlin was in the best interest of Tangoe and its shareholders,” said Jerry Kokos, Executive Chairman of Tangoe. “Given its deep bench of operational resources and excellent track record of acquiring and growing businesses in the TEM market, Marlin is an ideal partner for Tangoe. This transaction provides the opportunity for immediate and substantial value to Tangoe shareholders, while also allowing Tangoe greater flexibility to execute on its long-term strategic vision.”

At closing, Marlin intends to combine Tangoe with its existing portfolio company Asentinel, a provider of TEM software and services. The combination would create a market leader managing more than $38 billion of IT and telecom spend on behalf of over 1,300 customers worldwide. The new company would operate under the Tangoe brand with Jim Foy continuing to serve as CEO, with Tim Whitehorn, CEO of Asentinel, serving as the Chief Product Officer.

“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Marlin and combine with Asentinel, and see tremendous benefit in combining Tangoe’s global scale and comprehensive offering with Asentinel’s heritage of technological innovation,” said Mr. Foy. “The breadth and depth of our combined product and service capabilities, delivered on a global scale, should enable us to provide a compelling value proposition to our customers,” added Mr. Whitehorn.

“We look forward to working closely with the Tangoe and Asentinel teams to develop world-class solutions and drive customer success,” said Peter Chung, a principal at Marlin. “This agreement further supports Marlin’s long-term commitment to the TEM market and the value we believe these solutions deliver to customers.”
