A telecom audit is not as painful as it sounds. On the contrary, it creates no disruption to your day-to-day operations and it can reduce your telecom spend and potentially save your organization a great deal of money!
Are you unsure whether your telecom costs are too high?
If you are unsure where you stand with your current telecom spending, an extensive telecom audit will tell you everything you need to know and more. If you have not yet conducted a telecom audit, here are some of the areas that it will address:
Are you being overcharged for the services and features you use?
Are you being billed for features or services you do not use?
Is your equipment current or in need of replacement?
What are the available service options that could save you money?
Are your calling and data plans are delivering value?
You might be paying too much
Many companies simply pay their telecom bills as they come in. They don’t pay much attention to the invoices or how they are broken down. When the service contract period is over, the anniversary date generally goes by without any fanfare – or renegotiation. These are times that can be leveraged to your advantage and if you aren’t paying attention, the moment to act may slip away.
Often, once the contract date passes, you are locked into another year. If this is the case, you may be missing out on newer, better plans that will save you money.
Some of the ways a telecom audit can help you reduce costs include:
Communication and network optimization
ITS has strong relationships with a wide range of international business carriers. Switching carriers may help you to reduce downtime, deliver faster connection speeds, and help you take advantage of today’s communications technology.
Wireless cost control
Whether you provision your wireless devices in-house or have adopted a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy, your wireless costs may be due for an overhaul. A telecom audit looks closely at what you are paying for your wireless service and identifies ways in which you can save. You may be paying for features you no longer use, or you may be tied to a plan that doesn’t line up with your current needs. A telecom audit will illustrate all the ways you can reduce wireless costs, driving significant value back to the bottom line.
Low-latency network design
Low-latency and high-bandwidth network can help you be more competitive in today’s global marketplace. We look at your network design to determine the best ways to optimize its performance so that you can stay on top. Optimizing your network can lead to reduced costs, more efficient data transmission and storage, and will provide you with a more secure network environment for your organization and your customers.
With today’s rapid changes in telecom tends, you are likely sitting on a lot of inventory that is either obsolete or not in circulation. By implementing an inventory management system, ITS provides you with an easy way to manage your telecom inventory from a central database. This makes it easier to manage your telecom assets and stop unnecessary purchasing and billing costs from happening.
