It was 1998. You can tell by the funny throwback photo above. The internet was still dial-up. And Scott Fogle and Tim Wise had just met at a new communications start-up in Atlanta. Both noticed that many enterprises had no clear strategy for structuring their growing internet-connected systems. And they were determined to do something about it.

So, on July 31, 2001, they started Advocate. The firm would soon emerge as a leader in Telecom Expense Management (TEM) … and then network optimization … and ultimately become the premier Technology Business Management (TBM) services provider. After assessing over $50 billion in IT spend, Advocate knows how to find the savings and identify the investments that will make the most impact. It’s why we’ve helped clients save over $200 million in the last two years alone.

Over 600 clients, 11 consecutive Inc. 5000 awards, and $20 Billion in cumulative savings later, Advocate is helping IT leaders around the world uncover more funds to invest, enable more business outcomes and create more influence overall.

Just show us your data – and we’ll show you exactly where you can free up the working capital to do what matters more.
