Our vision is to create a telecom management ecosystem where over 80% of all end user telecom environments around the globe are operating at 90% or greater efficiency as measured by the Efficiency First® Performance Index, are supported by Efficiency First® Certified Solution vendors, and are viewed by management as strategic assets that are used to drive business results.
AOTMP Efficiency First® Certified Solution status is achieved by vendors that complete a certification program that includes collecting performance data from the vendor and most importantly, their client base. The Efficiency First® Telecom Vendor Certified Solution Directory lists all pending and certified vendors.
AOTMP Efficiency First® Certified Solution vendors possess solution capabilities aligned with the Efficiency First® Framework and are likely to positively impact the efficiency of an enterprise’s fixed and mobile environment and their adoption of the Framework.

Solution capabilities are then analyzed and scored against a standardized Efficiency First® Vendor Solution Certification scoring scale, using performance data collected from the vendor and client performance ratings collected directly from the vendor’s clients.
