By doing this, they can expect cost reductions, increased cash flow, and improved predictability, all of which will help improve the overall customer experience.Cloud PBX, or Private Branch Exchange, operates through an internet connection connecting IP phones to PBX servers. This method replaces conventional phone line systems. Cloud VoIP and PBX is a cheaper and more flexible business solution. As your business grow, Cloud PBX grows with you.

Retaining control in the face of technology sprawl
Organizations are having difficulty controlling technology expenses due to a growing number of services, vendors, and contracts. Managing these expenses is complex and time-consuming. CFOs work with so much data within their company that requires organizing, understanding, and combining data from different sources within the company. This data can come from various places, such as servers, spreadsheets, and apps. By bringing together the important data, useful reports, analytics, and dashboards can be created and track the performance and efficiency of all connected devices.
It is easy for one to get overwhelmed by the variety of technology options available. It has been recommended that CFOs need to prioritise finance automation, by planning out a multiyear roadmap to hyper automation. CFOs should create this plan with business goals and outcomes in mind.
Many businesses overlook hidden expenses, such as unexpected vendor fees or expensive cloud services. Some discover they overspent on communications after it’s too late to prevent the costs, and others are surprised by the high cost of operating IoT SIMs. These unexpected expenses can add up to millions of dollars per year.

TEM (Telecom expense management) platforms are used to track technology expenses through different analytic software, strategic planning, and financial forecasting. Records of hardware, software and licenses with expiration alerts, making procurement and business continuity planning easier.
