14 December 2021 | Posted by Cass Information Systems, Inc.

Enterprise telecom environments are diverse, wide-reaching, and complex. You have to keep track of emerging technology, juggle multiple carriers, and monitor a large number of Moves, Adds, Changes, and Disconnects (MACDs) on a daily basis.

Without a clear view of what you own, billing mistakes, overcharges, and poorly optimized infrastructure can be costly. 

In our guide, we explore how to implement a comprehensive MACD tracking process at your enterprise, so you can minimize unnecessary spending and regain control over your telecom inventory.

What is Telecom MACD Activity?

MACD activity describes any order for a move, an add, a change, or a disconnection of telecom services. Tracking this provisioning activity gives enterprises visibility over shifts in their assets, developments, and technology. 

By continually tracking your MACDs, you will build up a detailed snapshot of your telecom environment, so you'll always have an accurate inventory. This helps guide decision-making, allowing you to easily align current infrastructure with strategic objectives. 

When you use MACD tracking alongside a telecom expense management (TEM) solution, it becomes an effective tool in highlighting inefficiencies. This helps you keep operations lean and effective, so you can achieve continuous cost savings through optimizations year on year.

Our guide explores the four steps to creating a MACD process at your enterprise:

  • Locating your assets
  • Automating service updates
  • Using a centralized database to store key data
  • Applying the data to inform strategy

In addition, we explore how you can use API integrations and ITSM systems to automate your tracking, for a complete record of all activity.
