Telecom Expense Audits

 

 

Do you have the most cost effective telecom services?

Let our experts help trim costs and fine tune systems.


Telecommunications are among the most essential services used by most companies.  Yet these services are increasingly expensive and remain among the least understood. With the right systems and pricing in place, telecom can become a strategic advantage rather than a necessary expense.

Our experts find the most cost effective service plans available.
To evaluate savings available to you in the telecommunications marketplace, we provide a no-cost, no-obligation assessment by our team of experts.  Our team includes Telecom Executives, Managers, Financial Specialists, Solutions Architects and Professional Negotiators from the leading telecommunications companies. Our experts have hundreds of years of collective experience from both the supplier and buyer perspective.

How do you reduce our telecom costs?
We begin with a customized assessment of your systems and needs. Circuit by circuit, location by location, service by service, we work to understand your telecom inventory and systems. We provide you with a comprehensive view of historical costs, network configurations, carrier relationships and equipment.

We explore changes to service plans, compare your rates with current pricing in the market and negotiate the best pricing available.  We know carriers’ negotiating techniques and profit margins and where your contract leverage points are.  Negotiations with existing carriers can include full-fledged RFPs or concentrate on creating a competitive situation that produces the best possible outcome while retaining your incumbent carrier.

We also review your invoices against contractual requirements to ensure that the pricing, discounts, terms, services and taxes are accurate.  We provide easy to understand reports to ensure that your obligations with respect to contract minimums and other terms are met and costly penalties avoided.

Who can benefit from our services?
Any company spending over $3,000 per month on telecom services or having more than ten locations can benefit from our analysis.

How much can I expect to save?
We are able to reduce monthly charges by an average of 15% to 20%.  Savings up to 30% are not unusual.

How much does it cost?
There is no fee for our evaluation.  Unless we can reduce your telecom expenses, you will not receive a bill from us.  Our fees are based solely on the savings you realize.  

What if the best way to reduce costs involves implementing VoIP?
Sometimes our evaluation will determine that the best way to control expenses and enhance telecom services is through migration to VoIP.  The costs of this implementation must be weighed against potential savings. We can assist with all phases of the evaluation and implementation including equipment purchases and contract negotiation.  Fees for these services will be quoted on a project basis.

What if the best way to save money is to switch carriers?
Before recommending this alternative we consider the tradeoffs associated with switching carriers: the costs, uncertainty, and the disruptions.  If exploring alternative carriers is appropriate, we can help with RFP development and compare all vendors against Key Performance Indicators (KPI's).  Fees for these services will be quoted on a project basis.
 

How do I get started?

Getting started is as simple as giving us a call or contacting us.  We can usually review your bills on line and give you an estimate of savings within days.  There is no investment of time on your part  and no fees until you realize savings based on our recommendations.  You have nothing to lose by giving us a try.

A privately held retailer with 243 locations nationwide saved $800,000 annually, a 35% reduction in its telecom expense and realized material improvements in its terms and conditions. Services included data and voice communications, long distance and toll free services, WAN, audio conferencing and dial back-up services at all store locations.

We helped the headquarters of a major bank optimize 30,000 Centrex lines and migrate to IP Direct Inward Dialing (DID) with minimal impact on the end user.  We worked with the bank’s telecom, billing, legal, and sourcing departments, AT&T and the Public Utilities Commission.  In the process, we found a systemic error in the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) billing formats which saved the bank over $10 million dollars in cost.
