Corporate spending on wireless to reach $37 bln in 2004

Telecom spending has become one of top five expenses for most enterprises, with wireless services accounting for a large portion of that expense. By year-end 2004, corporate wireless spending is projected to reach $37 bln nationwide. According to Gartner researchers, wireless cost management can save a company 25-35% of its ongoing annual expenditures for wireless services. For organizations with hundreds or thousands of employees carrying multiple wireless devices, that translates to several thousand dollars each month and millions of dollars over the life of a contract.
