When was the last time you reviewed all the various provider contracts sitting in your drawers or file cabinets? Chances are you could be saving much more by identifying and eliminating unnecessary services and products and negotiating better deals. But if you're like so many managers, you are strapped for time as it is. Who has time to put everything on hold while you sort through hundreds of documents and invoices, looking for overcharges and trying to find a better deal?That's where an independent, third party professional can bring benefits that you just can't achieve by doing it yourself. A skilled auditor knows what to look for and where to find it. Here are two key areas where a professional services deep dive can really save you money.
A good auditor, like TTI, will conduct a complete historical audit of services throughout your enterprise, including all expenses in your voice, data and wireless infrastructure - to recover refunds and credits for your organization.Through our process, identifying potential telecom billing errors represents only 20% of the time and effort to complete the validation. The remaining time is spent reconciling with service providers to resolve the claim, correct the errors on the billing and secure the maximum refunds possible. The bottom line is that our audits will typically result in a 25-40% annual savings. That's real money. Those who insist on doing it themselves report savings between 5-10%. That's a big difference.
