A national French operator wanted to offer its business clients a comprehensive view of their telecom costs. Thousands of their clients were challenged with cost distribution to the correct cost centers within their organization. Saaswedo deployed an enterprise solution for billing data management, giving each client account access to a detailed portal with KPI and comprehensive customizable reports. 700,000 lines across 8,000 businesses are processed daily.
Casino needed to maintain control of its data costs for its fleet of nearly 8,000 mobile lines and 3,500 data connections for several providers covering more than 3,000 locations. The project, directed by Lucernys, with the support of Saaswedo’s tools, provided comprehensive mapping of the company’s telecom assets and “streamlined” contract monitoring. Consoview enables management of mobile and IT order monitoring. The telecom policy developed by Tec-Ker provided a good operational ROI.
With a fleet of more than 7,000 mobile phones and 1,000 land lines, Bureau Veritas chose Lucernys to optimize its telecom resources. The TEM tools developed by Saaswedo enabled automatic integration of client references, provision of a management interface for orders, and generation of ERP outputs for digitization of accounts. Interfacing with the internal bill validation solution enabled substantive time savings in daily management of the telecom fleet and expenses.
Reduce costs and simplify the administrative environment. These were the objectives of BPCE, a financial services firm made up of more than 40 businesses. Lucernys, chosen as project lead, used Consoview for mapping the company’s contracts and lines. This analysis enabled them to select a preferred operator, then to eliminate redundant resources, thus realizing 25% savings. The necessary evolution from local management to a company-wide and outsourced management model was guided by Lucernys.
This territorial cooperative, which includes 33 Franco-Belgian municipalities, needed to map, analyze and manage multi-operator telecom expenses for the entire group’s mobile phones and land lines. Our partner C-ISOP, a public sector specialist, guided them in the set-up and roll-out of our TEM solution, which enabled expense and asset management of hardware and accounts. Our client can now manage multiple contracts as if dealing with a single operator.
SEB is a global leader in the small household appliances sector, collaborating with our partner LEYTON. With a goal of centralizing its telecom policy, and benefitting from a multi-operator bid, SEB wanted to have an accurate view of its fleet and telecom costs by entity/brand. Setting up detailed monthly reporting, both by entity and consolidated, allowed them to manage and control their total costs for land lines and mobile phones. We automatically integrated all of their billing data into their ERP.
The leading French passenger and freight transportation company, with more than 100,000 mobile phone lines, wanted to centralize management of its mobile phone assets. The scalability of our proven technical solution convinced the client of our security and expense reduction capabilities.

With 813 daily flights in 118 countries, this European airline had a significant problem with roaming data consumption, as flight crews (pilots and cabin crew) had 6,000 iPads generating exorbitant bills on a recurring basis. The Datalert solution was deployed, enabling a 90% decrease in roaming charges in just a few weeks, thus generating tens of thousands of euros in savings each month. Our partner Techstep took charge of the deployment and support phases of this project.
White Water West (Canada) is a manufacturer of a variety of products for water parks, with 5,000 installations worldwide.

White Water West has realized 35% savings on its mobile bills.
