CHICAGO and HOUSTON – November 11, 2014 – Chicago-based TBI, the nation’s leading third-party distributor of technology solutions, announced today an exclusive agreement with Teligistics, the leading telecommunications services sourcing firm. The agreement allows TBI to offer Teligistics lifecycle management solutions on an exclusive basis through its nationwide network of more than 2,000 independent partners selling a range of IT, network, and communications services to end-user business customers.
“As the exclusive distributor of the Teligistics portfolio, we are enabling our partners to offer their enterprise customers significant value,” said TBI President Geoff Shepstone. “Teligistics’ services are critical in the often complex request for pricing (RFP) procurement process. As important, their expense management suite keeps carriers honest, both in terms of how they deliver services, but also in how they bill for them.”
The exclusive services available to TBI partners through Teligistics provide complete telecommunications expense management and include four distinct enterprise modules:
- Telibid™. Teligistics’ patented eProcurement tool for strategically sourcing global telecommunications services via “best-in-class” RFPs.
- Strategic Sourcing. Offering “world class” telecommunications contracts that address every facet of the service provider negotiating process, from billing, to service level agreements, to pricing, and beyond.
- Telecom Expense & Asset Management (TEAM™). A web-based portal that simplifies the often overwhelming service procurement, management, and billing audit processes. Audits are conducted on inventory as well as contracts which guarantees that the best possible savings are secured and customers are assured that telecom vendors are in compliance with contractual rates and discounts.
- Enterprise Mobility Management (eMobileGistics™). A dynamic tool that addresses the fast-growing costs of supporting wireless and mobile employees. This includes device fulfillment, plan changes, and trouble tickets.
“We are delighted to have partnered with TBI, a company that prides itself on providing its partners with the highest level of service and support,” said Teligistics CEO David Roberts. “Reaching TBI agent-partners allows Teligistics to grow its market share alongside a company that shares our core values which is of paramount importance to us.”
