What You Need to Know About a Telecom Audit
For many businesses, telecom ranks as one of the top expense line items. If your business has not had a telecom audit recently, then it is very likely that you are overpaying for services. A telecom audit could be the solution. As you consider a telecom audit for your business, here are some questions that you may have, and the answers that you need to guide your decision making process:
Why Are My Telecom Invoices So Confusing?
Back when businesses relied on traditional telephone and “snail mail” as the main communication methods, the billing system was much easier to understand. Communication methods have evolved rapidly, and now we have many services that make up the communication bill. Multiple landlines, a variety of wireless devices, each requiring internet access and data plans…etc. The numerous communication methods are an amazing asset for business, but make for a complex invoicing system.
Along with the evolution of communication, we have also seen telecom companies grow and change as a result of frequent mergers and acquisitions, rather than slow and steady organic growth. This has brought on re-organization that is not always cohesive and efficient, and includes multiple telecom billing systems for various services that make it difficult to comprehend exactly what you are paying for.
How Likely is it That My Business Will Benefit From a Telecom Audit?
Almost 80% of telecom invoices contain errors. Chances are very good that your business has been overpaying for services due to hidden errors. Requesting a professional telecom audit will give your business the opportunity to have your invoices analyzed by industry experts so they can identify the errors and the savings opportunities.
