the language of efficiency

Imagine throwing away 20% of your yearly capital expenditures. That’s the reality for a surprising number of service providers — to the tune of $65 billion lost, industry-wide. The culprits? Poor communication, mislaid assets and mismanaged inventory is a direct result of critical data being scattered throughout your organization in a variety of formats, managed by different business functions. This makes sharing information and effective collaboration difficult, if not impossible. 

TruOps Common Language® was designed to put an end to all that waste, once and for all.  It keeps everyone working together. For service providers whose operations involve an overwhelming amount of moving parts, Common Language promotes consistency by standardizing the way your ecosystem refers to locations, equipment, circuit paths and service use. 

bring order to the chaos

Common Language ensures the flow of consistent and accurate information throughout your organization’s infrastructure by providing a common:

  • Name for locations, equipment, connections, services and virtual functions
  • View of the network across business operations
  • Way to optimize processes through automating operations 

Common Language centralizes all your information, so you can eliminate duplication and errors. As a result, costly mistakes are avoided, and efficiency between business divisions, corporate partners and even vendors is dramatically increased.
