Asentinel Announces Latest Version of Telecom Expenses Management Software

Asentinel, a technology-driven telecom lifecycle management company, announced the launch of Asentinel (News - Alert) 7.0, the latest version of its patented global Telecom expense Management (TEM) application.

According to company officials, Asentinel 7.0 provides extensive flexibility through amplified business and audit rules, extra wireless enhancements and expanded international support for customers throughout the world.

In a press release, Jason Fisher, Asentinel’s chief software architect, said, “To handle the ever-changing world of telecommunications, a TEM solution needs to evolve. Our latest release allows companies to better audit the most granular components of the carrier’s billing to the negotiated rates, configured business rules and policies.”

During Asentinel’s preview of the latest version at the User Development Conference in September, a client stated that with the improvements added to Asentinel 7.0, users can find an increase in applications usability and user-friendliness, and wireless auditing capabilities. The client further said the new features incorporated in Asentinel 7.0 allow them to manage telecom expenses more efficiently by increasing the productivity as a whole which finally leads to cost savings for the organization.

In its latest version, Asentinel overhauled the invoice grid and reprogrammed it entirely in AJAX. With the new grid customers can view invoices with many line items without any loading time. It eliminates the necessity of refreshing the page while managing billing exceptions.

In 2005, Asentinel announced international TEM support with Asentinel 4.0. Since then the company has continued to move forward in the path of global enhancements, according to company officials.

Earlier this year, Asentinel released Asentinel Mobile, which the company claims as the industry's first mobile application for TEM. Asentinel Mobile allows users access to inventory, invoices, orders and business intelligence on the go.

The latest release of Asentinel 7.0 provides support for multinational corporations that process telecom invoices in many formats. Asentinel 7.0 is available in tier one or tier two languages and helps in invoice processing in any currency or language, according to company officials.

David C. Perdue (News - Alert), CEO of Asentinel, said, “The enhancements in our latest release reflect the needs of the customers, who manage every aspect of their telecom spend within our application, either with internal resources or through outsourcing.”

According to Perdue, Asentinel 7.0 provides full view of telecom lifecycle that ranges from inventory and invoices to disputes, procurement and provisioning. Through Asentinel 7.0, customers can have the strategic advantage of reducing their telecom bills at present and thereby securing better contracted rates for future.
