Flexible Invoice Processing

Flexible Invoice Processing (FIP) provides a clean and efficient way to add wireless spend data into MobilityCentral for those carriers which aren’t set up for automated import. Spend analysis, alone, only gave us part of the picture.

Flexible Invoice Processing now supports deeper detail for recurring charges data, and now supports the import of usage detail. This upgrade provides wireless expense management firms, and corporate mobility managers alike, with unprecedented reporting detail from unsupported carriers, including MVNOs. MobilityCentral is the only application which makes this possible. Contact your Success Manager for more information about these changes!

Import Template Options

We liked this one so much, we blogged about it!

MobilityCentral excels at importing, normalizing, and analyzing data whether it’s strictly formatted from the wireless carrier, or cobbled together from various human resources and inventory systems. Wireless expense and mobility administrators continuously update employee and device detail throughout the month. MobilityCentral now presents administrators with new options for dealing with blank data fields in the user and inventory import templates. As a result, combining data from multiple sources is easier than ever.

Partner Admin Console

Managing multiple customer instances of MobilityCentral shouldn’t take away from your ability to service your customers. MobilityCentral’s Partner Admin Console consolidates all your customers into one place providing you easy access to every account from a single login.

The Partner Admin Console features a full list of every customer you’ve ever worked with. You can drill in to any client instance, or switch instances using the built in navigation drop-down option at the top of the page.

When you’re asked to answer a question about a user and you don’t know to which client they belong, use the global search option in the Partner Admin Console to identify the client account through the user’s name or mobile number.

Customizing your end-user’s experience to match your brand is easy in the Partner Admin Console. Change everything from the login URL (wem-co.mymobilitycentral.com) to the embedded hyperlinks in spend related emails.

The Partner Admin Console was designed with you in mind, and based on feedback from our partners!

Increase Savings Realization by Sending Email

Visage Mobile has a lot of data about what works, and what doesn’t, when managing wireless programs. One thing that data shows us, over and over again, is the powerful impact email communication has on end-user behavior as it pertains to wireless spending and usage.

How confirmation bias alters wireless analysis

Chances are, you’re doing a pretty good job of keeping wireless costs optimized for your customers.  That’s why they continue to pay you.  That’s good, very good, but our business environment demands that successful vendors provide consistently increasing returns to their customers, or they will be replaced by competitors or alternative approaches. An important aspect of this process, which you may not have considered, is how basic human cognitive biases might be affecting how you conduct your business.
