Telecom Strategic Support

Cost Reduction / Cost Recovery

Today’s corporate telecommunications networks are a complex mosaic of services, vendor relationships, and ever changing user requirements.

What once was clearly defined by voice, data, and video is now converged technology supporting integrated service offerings that seem to have no boundaries. Corporate IT / telecommunications staffs are hard pressed to meet business demands while containing costs within ever-shrinking budgets.

Business Realities:

The sunset of TDM services by the Tier 1 providers will require planning to avoid unbudgeted capital expenses.  VOIP is not what the vendors represent it to be and has a list of new risks:

  • Telecom costs rank in the top 4 expenses for most companies
  • Telecom agreements are the least flexible of any service contracts
  • Telecom bills are complicated with large volume of detail that requires specialized knowledge and technology to analyze
  • Nearly two-thirds of companies do not have controls in place to manage telecom costs
  • Effective telecom management requires an understanding of contracts, bills and service-level agreements

Traditionally we have saved clients between 10% and 22% of their Total Cost of Ownership for delivery of telecommunication services.
