Get Ahead of the Curve in 2020!

2020

Believe it or not we're heading into the last quarter of the year. This is the time when everyone tries to knuckle down and get some things done. It's also the time when you go back and look at all the things you were supposed to accomplish this year and nervously try to tackle a few before the holidays roll around.


Here's one thing you could do now that will set your department up to be ahead of the curve in 2020. It will have a positive ripple effect throughout your entire organization. And it can be done while you continue to attack all those other issues. It won't even cost you anything. In fact, it will save you potentially thousands of dollars off your monthly IT/telecom spend. What can you do? Bring in a professional to optimize your inventory, services and vendor contracts.

No, this isn't something you should be doing yourself. Frankly, it's not your job. Your job is to keep the forward momentum; to research and identify ways to incorporate new technologies into your organization and how to make sure the systems and programs employees are using are sound and secure. Your job is to plan for next year. But, even if you had all the time in the world, it's not something you should be doing. For one thing, you don't have the negotiating power that a professional contract negotiator has. And, you can't possibly be keeping track of all the latest pricing iterations and regulation changes.

Using the services of a professional, such as TTI, makes more sense than ever before. Here's what a good auditor brings to the table:

Experience
They can leverage years of experience, including a history of conducting audits and negotiating better contracts.
Knowledge
No one understands carrier billing procedures like an auditor who has worked with them for years.
Access
A good auditor will be a subscriber to online tariff systems, giving them the ability to secure more refunds from provider. They should also have access to a proprietary historical library of claim information.

These skills and positioning help a professional auditor to identify billing errors and to obtain refunds from vendors you may not have even thought possible. That's why a good auditor will save you much more than you can save if you did it yourself. That's something you may want to tell your CFO!

A good auditor will also be able to use their clout and experience to optimize your vendor contracts to put you are back in the driver's seat, where you belong. Vendors count on busy IT/telecom managers to either ignore pricing increases and billing errors or to assume it's just the cost of doing business. Auditors take nothing for granted. And that benefits you.

The key is to get started now, not after you're saddled with a whole new laundry list of things you have to research and analyze for 2020. Making the move now will position your department and your company ahead of the curve in the new year.
