August 17, 2005, Toronto and Boston – Avotus Corporation, the leading provider of communications expense management (TEM) solutions, is seeing early success for its Intelligent Communications Management™ 7 (ICM7) TEM solution which was announced on Aug. 3, 2005. Already, fifteen customers have upgraded or are piloting ICM7 to take advantage of its expense management, control of invoices and inventory, and network usage administration.

The customers include leading educational, energy, financial, healthcare, retail and technology organizations. About half of the customers have turned to ICM7 for its TEM capabilities and half for its usage management. ICM7 is the industry’s first truly integrated communications management system that provides detailed data availability across all communication-related business processes within an enterprise and delivers visibility into spend, usage and inventory.

ICM7 provides bi-directional data exchange with companies’ business and operational systems, such as accounts payable, spend management, asset inventory, real estate, human resource management, CRM and even ERP systems, using standard interfaces. Avotus ICM7 also brings together external (carrier- and vendor-sourced) data with internal communications information, facilitating complete communications analysis and reporting at corporate, division, department and individual levels.

“Customers are hungry for a single, comprehensive communications management environment that gathers data from every source, manages the communications business processes and integrates the results with enterprise systems,” commented Alan Gold, Avotus chief marketing officer. “ICM7 extends Avotus’ leadership and proves once again that we offer ‘Total Control from Procurement to Payment’ for communications.”
