May 5, 2018 – ETMA, the Enterprise Technology Management Association, formerly TEMIA the Technology Expense Management Industry Association peers vote to recognize Ezwim and Network Control for the Partnership Achievement award at its conference in Nashville.
Having met through ETMA/TEMIA activities, Network Control’s Mark Hearn and Ezwim’s David Sonenstein were friendly acquaintances for several years. In the summer of 2017, Network Control was seeking a partner who understood the European Union GDPR data privacy legislation requirements. Network Control’s client, called for an international deployment of wireless services with inventory management, expense validation, cost optimization, invoice management and a single view for reports and analytics.
Ezwim was a natural fit with its ISO 27001:2013 certification. Within two months, Network Control and Ezwim had implemented complete mobile expense management services. On average, Ezwim was able to load three full invoice periods per country in three to five days. Network Control’s client was able to achieve complete global visibility of its wireless spend and optimization and dispute recommendations. In addition to identifying billing errors through Ezwim’s Validation Analytics, Network Control was able to save the client over 17% on its International Wireless expenses as a result of optimization recommendations.
Network Control provides all of its services within its own proprietary SaaS portal solution. The solution allows full continuity or services that this client had been experiencing for their North American business since 2015. The two organizations continue to monitor and provide optimization and dispute recommendations as part of a comprehensive mobile expense management program. The two organizations are growing their relationship, with a second partnered client that was implemented in 13 countries in March 2018.
Mark Hearn, President of Network Control and ETMA President said, “Network Control is pleased to partner with Ezwim in helping our team to manage some of our International Wireless services for our growing list of global clients. The Ezwim team has been extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the nuances of international wireless inventory and billing capabilities as it is pretty much the “wild-west” in some countries versus what we are used to in the US.“
David Sonenstein, Executive Director of Ezwim, said, “We are proud to be recognized by our competitors and peers for achievements we have made with our partners on multiple occasions and thankful that ETMA was the catalyst to meet Mark and the great team at Network Control.
