Telecom Bill Audits Produce Real Savings
PUBLISHED: Jun 19, 2015
Telecom costs including voice, landline, wire line, cellular and broadband, are an increasing portion of every business’s operational expense. Therefore, it’s critical to monitor and manage your monthly telecom expenses. However, given expanding telecom and IT infrastructures’, multiple vendor relationships and increasingly complex billing statements, this can be a daunting task. You can choose the DIY approach or you can hire an expert. But remember, your goal is to make sure you don't leave any money on the table. If you miss an opportunity to eliminate an erroneous billing error or an unneeded product or service, you will continue to pay the price for this oversight every single month on your monthly billing statement. Sometimes, this type of work is just better left to the experts. If you decide to hire a professional, make sure they are willing to share in the risk and reward of telecom expense management. Are they willing to set a fee as a percentage of your savings? If so, you have a real partner who is fully accountable for your success. Still wondering if this is something you'd like to tackle on your own? Here's a short video produced by HPA Consulting Group which outlines the steps to a successful telecom bill audit. https://youtu.be/fKloj4ljnTA
