  • Speed - pre-existing ways to start integrating data in a meaningful way on day one

  • Mobility - access with a mobile portal for real-time engagement in the field, office or boardroom

“ARM is transforming the way work gets done. With our innovative SaaS-based Network Inventory Platform, we are helping infrastructure service providers deliver better customer experiences and stronger business outcomes,” states Frank McDermott CEO of ARM.   “Without cARMa providers would have to utilize complex tools and manual process to track data from a variety of sources.  cARMa now lets users focus on solving their business problems without worrying about not having the full picture.”

The cARMa SaaS Network Inventory Platform, including the Circuit Designer and Field Tech modules, is currently available to service providers in the United States and Canada, with a new Sales Engineer module releasing later this quarter.  Details about the availability of additional lifecycle modules are forthcoming.

Forfeited Revenue: A New Metric to Quantify Telecommunications & Data Center EBITDA Losses due to Late Service Installs

Forfeited Revenue: A New Metric to Quantify Telecommunications & Data Center EBITDA Losses due to Late Service Installs

Forfeited Revenue is the total dollar value of services that a customer has agreed to pay for that is permanently lost when a carrier or data center cannot deliver services on time according to CRD.  It shows how effectively any carrier or data center maximizes revenue based on the orders their customers have already signed. Ideally, every order would be installed on CRD, making Forfeited Revenue zero, because the carrier managed inventory, equipment, and processes to efficiently respond to customers’ needs.   However, every dollar of Forfeited Revenue is an opportunity lost forever.   This metric directly quantifies the revenue impact of late installs for the carrier, and standardizes all comparisons of impact across customers, business units, and products using dollars.  Decision makers can subsequently evaluate, prioritize, select, and execute improvement programs using Forfeited Revenue, cost and duration to calculate standard measures of ROI.
