Companies with multiple locations spread nationwide frequently experience billing errors, 3rd party billings and fraudulent charges.
Atlanta, Ga. (PRWEB) April 2, 2009
In this economy, every dollar counts. While furloughing and downsizing have been widespread tactics, many companies have taken advantage of Telco Management Group's complementary telecommunications audit to reduce expenses while expanding their service.
Telco Management Group is a complete telecom expense management firm specializing in cost containment audits as well as contract negotiations, bill consolidation, project management and implementation services. The company is known for maximizing technology and client efficiencies while reducing their clients' overall expenses. Telco Management Group reported that nine out of ten businesses have enjoyed savings of as much as 50% after their analysis by reducing waste and bundling contracts. In fact, many are able to obtain more services for less money.
To do this, Telco Management Group: 1. Conducts a comprehensive telecommunications bill and contract analysis (including local, long distance, internet, etc.) for all of the company's locations. 2. Suggests where the client can recover funds while optimizing their telephony options. 3. Presents the most cost competitive quotes from Tier 1 carriers. 4. Project manage implementation.
"We've found that many companies are paying for services that they don't need or use" said Jonathan Pedersen, Managing Partner at Telco Management Group. "Plus, by bundling many of these services under one agreement, companies can save approximately 10 to 25% more." Because they represent all carriers, Telco Management Group can recommend the best solution without bias to one company over another.
"The larger the company, the more they need a telecommunications audit", said Marilyn Dooley, founder of Telco Management Group. "Companies with multiple locations spread nationwide frequently experience billing errors, 3rd party billings and fraudulent charges." Dooley indicated that it is not uncommon for companies to be paying for the same long distance calls twice from the same provider under two different account numbers. "One of our clients was paying over $2,500 per month for a data circuit that had not been used for over a year after they had moved offices." The billing ceased after Telco Management Group uncovered the error and corrected the situation with the carrier, however.
While many companies charge a fee for this type of analysis, Telco Management Group is conducting this review and making telecom service recommendations as a complementary service. "We know that times are challenging right now for companies and we want to do what we can to help. By offering this service for free, we can help multi-location businesses, in particular, save money without necessarily having to reduce head count" said Dooley.
