Asentinel(R), a global telecom expense management (TEM) and total telecom cost management (TTCM) leader, announced today that it won new customers in the first half of 2008 at a rate 50 percent higher than the first half of 2007, which was its previous best. The company's growth already exceeds the industry average.
The company attributes much of its increased sales to the fact that its TEM software, Asentinel 5.0, was awarded the only comprehensive patent in the telecom expense management industry.

The new customers are some of the world's leading companies, representing a diverse range of industries including transportation logistics, corporate real estate, film and television production, energy and utilities, and industrial manufacturing.
"While the specific industries and challenges differ from customer to customer, each one shares a common desire for a combination of customer service excellence and the latest technological innovation, giving them strategic intelligence and unprecedented control of telecom across their business enterprise," added Perdue. "Our results prove that whether you are an international distribution or transportation company, a world bank, a database manager, an entertainment giant or a retailer; gaining control over telecom is vital in today's market."
Each of the new customers will utilize Asentinel's patented TEM solution Asentinel 5.0, Web-based software featuring cutting-edge TEM capabilities in its complete lifecycle expense management application, including Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) invoice loading capabilities, TouchFree TEM(TM) and Contract Control(TM) managed services.

Its groundbreaking software, Asentinel 5.0, has saved its customers millions of dollars since its inception in 2002.
