GlobaFone, a leading multi-carrier satellite service provider has announced CEO and founder Lou Altman will be presenting a free webinar aimed at professionals whose role is to initiate satellite phone purchasing decisions for business continuity and disaster management planning on Wednesday, November 9, and Thursday, November 10, 2011. The industry presentation will focus on price and value in the crowded Satcom industry where price shouldn’t always be the deciding factor.
The webinar entitled, “The Value Equation – Why the Lowest Price Costs the Most,” will outline scenarios in which organizations such as government agencies have ultimately spent more on their satellite communication solution when a contract was awarded to a low bidder.
“Too often in the Satcom industry buying agents are required to focus strictly on price when it comes to implementing satellite phone purchases,” said Altman. “We have had scenarios where clients come to us to discuss alternatives because their purchasing officers awarded contracts to the lowest cost provider and end up with the wrong handheld, calling features, or airtime plans. When service and satellite phone capabilities are overlooked because the provider was the lowest price the customer can end up paying more for supplemental hardware and additional fees over time because they were not set up with the correct solution in the first place. We will remove the cost stigma during the webinar and remind users of the value that a high quality provider can bring to their bottom line.”
Attendees will receive a complimentary satellite phone capability comparison chart which can be shared within their organization. To register for the event, visit the following links:
