Game Changing Platform that Unifies Telecom & Mobile Expense Management with Cloud & IT Asset Management utilizing automated ITAM Robot

The Avotus ITAM Robot builds and connects your Telecom and IT infrastructure. Once the inventory discovery is completed, the ITAM Robot sends the data to the Avotus Cloud Services platform. Online Analytical Processes (Big Data), are utilized to create a true Configuration Management Database (CMDB) of all your IT and Telecom assets (fixed and mobile). The CMDB is fully integrated with Avotus’ Elite Expense Management Services providing you with unparalleled visibility and control of its inventory and associated expenses. The Avotus ITAM Robot takes TEM/WEM from Telecom Expense Management to the next level of Technology Expense Management.

Continuous Updating of Inventory

After the ITAM Robot has been deployed, it continues to monitor and update your asset inventory on a real-time basis. The platform will provide you with continuous savings by improving business processes around invoices, contracts, provisioning and cost allocations for all services connected to your physical network.
