Concord, MA – May 14, 2018 – Sakon, the leading platform and services provider for managing enterprise communications ecosystems, today announced its inclusion in Gartner’s Market Guide for Telecom Expense Management Services, 2018. In it, Sakon is one of 15 telecom expense management companies profiled by Gartner to help provide understanding of the market and its offerings. Interested parties can access the Market Guide here, compliments of Sakon.
“We feel that this Gartner Market Guide will be greatly valued by the Global 2000 for its sharp insights and helpful recommendations,” said Andy Goorno, CEO of Sakon. “The market for TEM services can be a noisy and confusing one for enterprise customers to navigate. In our view, Gartner provides clarity where it is needed, and we are glad to be profiled accurately in this influential report.”
Among Gartner’s key findings in the Market Guide: “There is an emergent interest in enterprises seeking TEM vendors that also cover cloud application licensing, unified communications as a service (UCaaS) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity service models. Proper inventory management and detailed analytical reporting at differentiated user levels are key criteria.”1
Due to market trends like these, Sakon rebranded the company earlier this year and launched its namesake SaaS platform. Built on the bedrock of providing enterprise customers control over their network and end-user inventory, the Sakon platform enables the enterprise to manage and optimize the entire communications estate, reducing expenses associated with fixed-line, mobile, cloud and SaaS services while enhancing network performance and driving employee productivity.
Sakon’s profile in the Gartner Market Guide for Telecom Expense Management Services, 2018 marks the latest news for the company. Last month, Sakon won the top prize for Outstanding TEM Case Study at AOTMP’s annual summit; it has featured prominently in recent industry white papers and market alerts; and, most importantly, it has continued delivering savings and performance improvements for its clients while winning major new Global 2000 accounts.
