Congratulations to TEMIA’s three award 2017 Best Practice finalists: Comview, Mobile Solutions and MTS. Below is information about their nominations.

Comview Best Practices – Telecom Bill Payment

  • Outsourced Telecom Bill Payment should be considered a best practice for Enterprises
  • It promises automation and accountability to reduce internal processing time, expense, and ensure approved invoices are paid accurately, securely and on time.
  • Comview’s documented, SOC compliant processes ensure timeliness, accuracy, security, and transparency when paying customer telecom invoices.

With Comview’s process we:

  • Document processes and stick by them.
  • Ensure back-end system engineered to support workflows and reporting.
  • Pay by electronic means when possible.
  • Keep customer bank accounts separate.
  • Pay against invoice number to minimize misapplied payments and improve tracking.
  • Record all payment information on invoice records in system
  • Automated reporting on invoices not funded, payment aging and more.
  • Research balance forwards to rectify lost/misapplied/un-cashed payments
  • Regularly reconcile bank accounts.
  • Complete end-to-end bank testing.
  • Employ bank security measures to prevent un-authorized payments.

Bill Payment provides a closed loop to provide a 360 view of the invoice lifecycle.

  • Incorrectly managed bill payment can do harm by service providers that fail to follow best practices.
  • You have probably seen or experienced similar yourself.
  • We believe our combination of proven, repeatable processes with supporting technology and dedicated staff make our Bill Payment Best Practices a strong contender for the TEMIA Best Practices award.
