The process of understanding a telecom audit is overwhelming and, at some points, downright confusing. Telecom invoices have become so crowded with confusing data that most companies, especially those with no time to spare, tend to put this kind of thing off. It’s easy to say, “We’ll get to this next month.” The truth is, a telecom audit can save thousands of dollars! Every month that goes by without completing an audit is a month that you’re probably losing more money than you have to.
Conducting a Telecom Audit
Often, the task of conducting a telecom audit falls to an IT or Procurement professional, and while that’s a fine start, most of these professionals are already wearing multiple hats and don’t have the bandwidth to become a telecom expense expert as well. Understandably, they won’t have expert knowledge of telecom tariffs, pricing guides, or contract and billing formats. And they shouldn’t have to.
Benefits of an Telecommunications Audit
There are many benefits of conducting a professional telecom audit. They can be conducted off-site so they don’t interfere with the day-to-day work of your company, and telecom experts can find refunds and savings that most IT or procurement professionals never see. Perhaps the greatest benefit of a telecommunications audit is that you only pay the auditor after they find savings for you. It truly is a no risk situation.
