Netherlands-based Telecom Expense Management company, A&B Groep, recently achieved Efficiency First® Vendor Solution Certification for Telecom Management. This esteemed certification demonstrates A&B Groep’s commitment to providing best-in-class service for their clients and an intentional effort to provide consistency through its global growth phase.
The company initiated the Efficiency First® Vendor Solution Certification process after a joint venture in 2015 with Grand Rapids (Michigan), US-based CBI Telecommunications Consultants. This joint venture will result in a concrete merger in September of this year. Global TEM, the new, combined company, offers a full suite of telecom expense management services and solutions.
After undergoing solution diagnostic, evaluation, and capabilities ratings, A&B Groep met all necessary requirements to receive Efficiency First® Vendor Solution Certification, which adheres to standards for driving technical, financial and operational efficiency across enterprise fixed and mobile telecommunications environments to maximize alignment with enterprise customers.
Timothy C. Colwell, SVP, Efficiency First Adoption:
“This certification validates A&B Groep’s alignment to Efficiency First® Framework performance principles. It provides an edge for the company in a competitive global market and increases the consistency of the company’s service offerings and solutions as they continue to experience exponential growth,” states Timothy C. Colwell, SVP, Efficiency First Adoption. “We’re thrilled for A&B Groep’s certification and excited for their continued expansion.”
Ron Rijkenberg, CEO of A&B Groep:
“Becoming AOTMP Efficiency First® certified is a logical step that fits perfectly into our strategic plan in which we have expressed our ambition to become the leading global Telecom Expense Management auditing and benchmarking business. Later this year, we will finalize our merger with our US-based partner,” stated Ron Rijkenberg, CEO of A&B Groep. “We are delighted to be a Certified Vendor because this means our practices are not only endorsed by our clients, but also enforced and certified through AOTMP - THE global authority on telecom vendors and enterprises - objective and independent.”
As part of the certification process the performance and experience of A&B Groep were rated. A large number of A&B Groep customers were surveyed to evaluate their experience with A&B Groep. In-depth interviews were conducted with their current and past customers. A&B Groep scored an 8.6 for general satisfaction and scored higher than an 8 in the segments of Account Management, Managed and Professional Services, Technical Systems, General Solutions and Value. We are very proud of these results after having been assessed by an impartial party such as AOTMP.
