Scheduled Roaming Management
New capability with the ability for end users/admins to schedule roaming feature assignment from the self-service portal. End users can be categorized and receive different features based on group assignment. Features can be assigned through MobiChord’s managed service team or by customer.
Not managing roaming
Some companies are not doing anything to address the problem. This may lead to unplanned and uncontrollable expenses. And end users will not be doing anything to address the problem either if they need to make a call in roaming to complete business transaction. Worst case the roaming will not be activated at all preventing company to secure a business deal or miss important call from the client.
Continually paying for roaming features/plans
To eliminate the risk of overages and the risk of not being able to do business while abroad some businesses may choose to continuously pay for roaming features they are not using accepting business continuity to be more important than associated cost. This is what is called a waste of money.
Managing roaming with unstructured communication
Some Companies are trying to mitigate those risks by managing roaming with unstructured communication. Most of the time this creates a chaos of e-mails and calls to the hot-line that is not possible to process in time. This is prone to mistakes, extremely time consuming and frustrating for both the end user and for the person responsible for telecom management. This may also drive the cost of managing the roaming higher than it would be to pay for roaming features continuously.
