Ready for Swisscom NATEL go subscriptions
For each mobile number, you see how much traffic (Voice & Data) was generated in each zone (Swiss / Neighbours / Europe / Global / GlobalPlus) and how much that traffic was charged in case it wasn’t included in the subscription.
With such information, it becomes easy to identify mobiles where the subscription should be upgraded or downgraded.
In this screenshot, we see the highlighted mobile has a “Global” subscription but generated almost no traffic in the regions Neighbours, Europe and Global over the 4 months displayed. We can safely downgrade to “Swiss” and save around 150.- CHF/month (depends on your contract). If the mobile still generates some traffic in Neighbours, Europe or Global, that traffic will be charged but it will still be more convenient than paying each month for a “Global” subscription.
Cost developments and cost comparisons. Detailed call and data roaming. Analyses, utilization of packages. Listing of unused SIM cards. Overview of chargeable subscriptions, etc.
Large number of standard reports available. Support you in managing and optimizing your mobile costs. All reports are available as Excel or PDF downloads.
Send automated emails with detailed cost information to employees and cost center managers. Creating awareness limits abuse, reveal anomalies and reduces the costs.
Provide access to users or cost-center managers to see their costs. Upload your inventory to associate a mobile to a user / cost-center, or use the information already available in your billing files (default).
Identify your savings and optimization potential. E.g. for inactive SIM cards, excessive traffic, unnecessary options or inadequate subscriptions.
Telbi is a SaaS based online portal, hosted in Switzerland. No software installation or maintenance needed from your side. Secure communication with the portal. Compliance with the swiss data protection regulation.
The use of Telbi pays off from the first minute thanks to cost savings. Low monthly fee and no contract duration give you financial flexibility.
Test Telbi with your own mobile data for free. We will show you immediately your cost reduction potential.
Achieve visibility to identify/correct anomalies and raise cost-awareness. Reduces your mobile invoice by 30% or more.
A TEM solution provides a complete, detailed and up-to-date visibility of all expenses. It is a valuable source of information which helps for all areas indicated above.
Provider: TEM has all the necessary data to know your traffic and profiles so you can negotiate exactly what you need, and you can simulate the outcome precisely. Information is power ! After implementing the new contract, you can verify the expected savings.
People: a major benefit of TEM is the ability to generate and send custom reports to each user/manager. By raising the awareness, this has a tremendous effect on the costs and we usually observe that the expenses drop by 20% or more as a direct consequence of sending reports. We even observed that the expenses then increase again if we stop sending reports.
Process:how often do you check invoices for errors or verify if each mobile has the appropriate options ? Unless you have a TEM solution in place, such work is very tedious and may be performed only occasionally. By simplifying and automating such tasks, you can detect and correct anomalies as soon as they happen so you reduce your invoice asap. Another aspect are the indirect costs associated with the administrative work of managing a mobile fleet, by reducing the workload up to 50%, a TEM solution reduces the indirect costs in the same proportion.
TEM = central pivot platform for all actors & activities.
TELBI includes a variety of features to simplify and automate some common tasks associated with the management of a mobile fleet. We estimate that using a TEM can reduce the overall workload up to 30%.
Sourcing: TELBI provides all the necessary data to know your traffic and profiles so you can negotiate exactly what you need, and you can simulate the outcome precisely. After implementing the new contract, you can verify the expected savings.
Helpdesk: TELBI acts as a central repository and can also provide a self-care portal for endusers.
Accounting: TELBI imports automatically all electronic invoices and associates the costs to each user/cost-center. Performing cost-allocation can be as simple as importing a generated file into your accounting system.
Reporting: this is a key feature, with one click you generate and send custom reports to each user/manager. With such visibility, you can delegate many verifications and reduce the need for central controlling.
Optimization:you benefit from the high visibility, it becomes then easy to detect and correct anomalies.
In addition to the software platform, we provide also a variety of managed services. We can take care of some/all of the above activities so you can focus on your core business.

While employees stay at home, many companies continue to pay mobile subscriptions which are over-sized for the current situation. Downgrading can save many 10'000.- CHF/month. For example: downgrade a "Swisscom NATEL go" subscription from "Global” to “Swiss” and that’s about 150.-/month you can save, or invest to provide collaboration [...]
