Is it possible your company is paying too much for telecom services? Are there services out there that would benefit your company that your current provider is not offering or discussing with you? If so, it is time to request an audit of your existing service situation. Your telecommunications consultant can perform an audit of your current services to let you know how you are doing. Similar to how you may visit a cardiologist for an EKG in order to remain healthy and strong.
Telecom services are contractual in nature and are sometimes viewed by vendor/providers as locked in. That may be as it pertains to your existing service and commitments made in the original agreement. However, new service or an existing service renewal deserves another look. The art of the RFP, or request for proposal, should not be overlooked. If you are of the "if it's not broke - don't fix it" mindset, you may be inclined to renew an agreement without question. That could be a costly decision. In the telecom industry, a provider's acquisition pricing is almost always better than retention pricing, so a quick decision to renew without an RFP may result in your company paying higher rates than necessary. Your consultant can help you navigate the process giving your company the biggest bang for your telecom buck!
After the RFP and vendor/provider selection comes the next step in the process, securing the best deal. This is not an easy task, as industry terminology, tariffs, pricing schedules, and terms and conditions are often confusing to people who are not in the telecom industry. Having an expert on your team who is fluent in the language of telecom is critical. Working on your behalf, your telecom consultant will give your company the competitive edge. They will help ensure you secure the best contract terms at the best rates available.
Technology changes rapidly, sometimes it can be difficult to keep up. Engaging a telecom consultant to perform a technology review will help your company make sense of the most current options. The newest technologies have the potential of better or faster performance, but is there a downside? Our telecom consultants can provide insight on services and service providers, so you don't just follow the latest trends, but rather make informed decisions which benefit your company now and in the future.
Many companies think of a telecom consultant as someone to guide them through a process or project during changing or challenging times. However, after your company has undergone an audit or seen a project delivered, don't be lulled into thinking you no longer require their assistance. Navigating the telecom industry waters is still necessary, even in the calmest of times. Expense management is an ongoing process because providers often depend on customers not holding them accountable to the agreed upon terms and conditions as it applies to such things as service credits or promotional pricing for new services. Retaining a telecom consultant to help oversee your ongoing expenses will ensure that your company continues to receive the best rates the industry has to offer.
As your company grows, whether by adding new divisions, merging with another company, or even if it splits into two separate companies, this expansion activity can lead to confusion as it pertains to your telecom services. When changes such as these are happening, you will likely need a telecom consultant to manage the communication needs of the company. Our experts can also offer project management when you're building a Wide Area Network inventory of circuits, considering a new vendor, or developing a system to track company equipment assets. Your consultant can also help if you're considering moving part of the company technology services to the cloud. They will help guide you through the decision-making process during these changing times.
