Sourcing connectivity can be a costly, time consuming, and tedious manual process that in many cases leads to error-prone installations with poor levels of support. In a world where profitability and IT cost reduction are core priorities for almost every business, networking teams should have access to carrier-agnostic, automated, and unbiased sourcing software that can effectively identify network options, ensure lowest cost, and automate all procurement workflows from configuration to implementation and beyond.

During this session we’ll introduce Lightyear, the first software platform that allows enterprises to buy and manage their global telecom footprint online. Lightyear’s software identifies every available provider for all of your connectivity needs while utilizing a comprehensive dataset to negotiate the lowest cost per megabit and ensure on-time installations. Lightyear’s software is your centralized system of record for network inventory management, ticketing, and cost optimization across your entire organization. Lightyear also ensures long term cost optimization by automating renewal shopping as carrier contracts near expiry.
