Is a Telecom Audit Right for Your Business?
The thought of undergoing a telecom audit may seem horrendous, but much like dreaded visits to the dentist, routine check-ups can prevent disasters down the road. The good news is, unlike your bi-annual visit to the dentist, you can outsource the task of a telecom audit. If you are debating a telecom audit for your business, here are a few things to consider to help you decide if it is the right time.
When was the last time you underwent a telecom audit? A regular review of your telecom spend is ideal to stay on top of multiple contracts and take advantage of possible decreases in pricing that accompany advances in technology. If you haven’t performed one recently, the answer is it is probably about time.
If you recently went through a growth spurt or acquisition, a telecom audit will help your company save money by eliminating redundant services or service associated with closed locations. Likewise, if you are anticipating an acquisition or major expansion, it is beneficial to proactively perform an audit to get a comprehensive view of all your services and anticipate any changes in requirements ahead of time.
Is your budget in line with the current market? Pricing and contract options are constantly changing. There is no need to overpay for your telecom services, especially if they have become antiquated as new technologies continue to emerge. Additionally, it is likely your telecom audit will pay for itself with the savings identified.
