Tangoe, Inc., a provider of Communications Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and related services, is offering a new integrated versions of its Mobile Device Management and Real-Time Telecom Expense Management (rTEM) solutions. This integration is designed to allow enterprises to take advantage of new features including a single mobile client application, called Tangoe Mobile, for combined functionality, enhanced geo-fence policy enforcement capabilities, and a carrier plan optimization tool that identifies cost-effective carrier plan options.
“Many of Tangoe’s global enterprise customers are focused on growth via mobility in 2013, and they require real-time contextual awareness that optimizes mobile usage and protects their IP throughout the entire lifecycle of mobile devices and their applications,” said Al Subbloie, president, CEO, and founder of Tangoe.
Tangoe Mobile combines Tangoe’s previous MDM and the rTEM client applications into a single, on-device application. The unified MDM/rTEM interface will be available for download via the App Store for iOS and via Google Play for Android, in early July 2013.
Using the solution, end-users can manage applications, track usage compared to carrier plans, and receive usage notifications from IT. The app also enables multiple geo-fence policies on each device, which are tied to location-based usage rules, allowing automatic policy enforcement based on real-time device location tracking.

Carrier Plan Optimizer – Based on historical usage for voice, SMS, and data, Tangoe rTEM recommends to the administrator the best carrier plan for each user.
Application-specific Data Tracking – Provides visibility into the specific data usage of each application on a device. This data enables more informed decisions regarding application usage and devices’ corresponding costs of operation.
