Hard to believe but summer is right around the corner!
Summer often brings a lull to most businesses. In many ways it can be maddening, as some of your best prospects may decide to put off making decisions "until everyone is back from vacation". That's when everything you wanted to wrap up before summer gets back-burnered until fall.
But summer can be a very productive time of year for smart CIOs and IT managers. Because those delayed projects clear the way to get things done that are under your control. Sometimes more than a few thing. And if those things can save you money in the process what better time than now to tackle them?
For instance, when was the last time you did a deep dive of your invoices and supplier contracts?
The "summer lull" is a great to conduct an audit of everything you are currently paying for. Here are a few areas to look into:
You may think this isn't a big problem and that you have everything under control.
But having worked over the years with some of the best IT professionals in business today, we've found that most are quick to admit that the day in/day out job of providing cutting edge services to their end users doesn't leave a lot of time to analyze every dollar spent.
That's why they depend on IT/telecom audits to keep expenses down. By the way, these aren't a bunch of guys with clipboards telling you what you're doing wrong. Thankfully, those days are long gone. Today's IT auditors are true colleagues, working with IT/telecom department heads to identify areas where they can save thousands of dollars, and keep on saving. They only look good when they make the IT department heads look good.
If it's been a few years since you did an IT/telecom "deep dive", reach out to us. We can show you what today's IT audits look like. No obligation. But we think you'll like what you see.
