Anomalous Networks Launches Free "Bill Shock" App for Android Smartphones Bringing Real-Time Telecom Expense Management to Users Fingertips

Barcelona, Spain (Vocus/PRWEB) February 15, 2011

Anomalous Networks, Inc., the innovator and leading supplier of Real-Time Telecom Expense Management (R-TEM) solutions, today announced the availability of its Telicost on-demand dashboard solution and free Telicost-Lite app for Android smartphones at Mobile World Congress (Booth 7A107 Hall 7). The Anomalous Networks Telicost Saas-based system gives small to large businesses utilizing Androids a real-time view of their data, voice and SMS usage and international roaming activities.

With Telicost, telecom managers gain greater visibility and control over their telecom assets while eliminating Bill Shock, and reducing telecom costs by 20 to 60 percent.

Telicost-Lite is the free app-only version that gives consumers the ability to track their mobile plan usage throughout the month in real time, and this gives them the necessary information to ensure they are using the most cost-effective carrier plan. With Telicost-Lite, the consumer configures their own Android plan parameters in the app so that they can be clearly alerted of potential plan overages something that the FCC has been trying to get mobile carriers to provide since the recent surge in Bill Shock has been making headlines.

One of the many challenges faced by businesses today is the inability to manage their employees mobile device usage in real-time. With Telicost, companies receive a real-time analysis of every employees mobile device usage, and they can easily detect when a potential budgeting issue will hit and how they should most efficiently manage that plan going forward. They can manage this process without having to make a big IT investment in a custom TEM solution. This puts businesses in a proactive, rather than a reactive mode in effectively managing their telecom costs. There are no more surprises or major discrepancies between carriers and customers, or companies and employees on unfair or unexpected mobile device usage costs.

The FCC has reported that over 30 million Americans are hit with Bill Shock each year, which causes the wireless industry and consumers undue stress. As more consumers adopt Android technology to gain added power and flexibility to their mobile capabilities, the opportunity for Bill Shock greatly increases. Android bridges the gap in the market between smartphones and dumb phones by offering a cost-effective platform to allow all mobile users the ability to afford premium mobile features such as email, web access and GPS navigation, said Anomalous Networks CEO Dan Rudich. Many users dont realize the impact this has on their monthly bill. Telicost safeguards mobile users and companies from going over their carrier plan limits. Both the free app and business solution can offer a savings of thousands of dollars based on many cases that are being widely reported in the international news.

Telicost costs $ 5/per month per user and provides businesses with a centralized view or dashboard of their aggregated telecom expenses in real-time with streamlined reporting on data usage, international roaming, usage anomalies and asset location tracking. Telecom managers and users each receive immediate warnings when approaching the limits of their carrier plan, as well as when they have exceeded their plan limits. Users and administrators will also receive international roaming alerts so they can work with the notified telecom manager to modify behavior or adapt plans to meet user needs and company budgets.

According to a recent study done by Anomalous Networks with its carrier partners, the average North American Enterprise spends 20% more than budgeted on annual Mobile Data Plans.Real-Time Telecommunication Expense Management solutions provide an edge to enterprises by allowing them to capture and react to potential cost and corporate data security exposures in real-time.
