Creative, Collaborative, and Highly Effective


A Legacy of Telecom Savings

Founded in 1998 at the dawn of the internet boom, Anilix began as a software-focused telecom expense management company. Our first product was developed for wholesale telecom purchasers like AT&T and Covad Communications (our beta client).

As the telecom landscape evolved in the early 2000s, we transitioned to a services-driven model. Since 2006, Anilix has operated on a contingency fee basis, only collecting revenue from the real telecom savings we generate for customers.

Over the past 15+ years, our elite team of auditors has saved clients hundreds of millions. We've conducted audits across Fortune 500 companies and leading organizations in sectors like:
  • Professional Services

  • Financial Services

  • Healthcare

  • Manufacturing

  • Technology

  • Non-Profit

No company is too big or small for Anilix to optimize. Our combination of deep telecom expertise and business acumen delivers maximum savings.

As telecom has grown more complex, Anilix has never lost sight of our mission - help organizations cut every possible dollar from their voice, data, and wireless budgets. With decades of combined experience, we've seen it all. Put our expertise to work for you and tap into serious telecom savings.

Contact Anilix today and become part of our legacy delivering substantial ROI to customers. Our story is still being written.
