HOUSTON, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- In an economy where extra caution has become a way of life for many small businesses, Validas, a pioneer in online wireless billing analysis, announced a new self-service portal for businesses with up to 500 lines.  From an electronic PDF of the bill, the Validas self-service portal securely and quickly performs millions of calculations to analyze bills, identify the savings and eliminate unnecessary charges.  Validas analyzes bills from all major U.S. wireless carriers – AT&T, Sprint Nextel, T-Mobile, Verizon and U.S. Cellular.

Industry analyst firm Gartner recently estimated over 70 percent of companies are not adequately or actively managing their mobile users or services -- and Validas believes the rate is even higher for smaller businesses that don't have the internal resources for expense management projects. With, a small business can easily automate wireless subscription management and bill auditing. With an optimized wireless plan based on actual usage and best available rates, savings are achieved in the very next bill.  

"At many companies, the wireless spend is growing rapidly and resources to manage and control it are shrinking. With all the smart phones, PDAs, BlackBerries, iPhones, wireless data cards and all the different plans carriers offer, it can be overwhelming," says Tom Pepe, co-founder and chief executive of Validas.  "Only allows small and medium-sized businesses with up to 500 lines to get a quick report on their wireless usage and where to save – no fancy consultants, no extra manpower, no manual tracking required – just the facts, plain and simple."

"While we provide extensive advisory services for major enterprise accounts with thousands of lines, we believe the added option of self-service for small businesses will help small business owners do what they really need to do – run their companies while the Validas platform does all the work and finds the savings," Pepe adds.

Validas is an independent company and has no vested interest in which carriers businesses choose, except to find the one with the best plan for their needs.

For businesses that have lines with multiple carriers, simply upload each bill to the small business portal or let Validas handle it by requesting your bill from the carriers.
