Meet your corporate responsibility with a telecom audit
A Telecom Audit is important because it is the first step you can take to lower your monthly telecom and datacom bills. Once an audit is completed and the carrier notified of overcharges, savings can begin immediately.
Do You Need a Telecom Audit?
Are your telecom bills too high? The answer is probably yes. Some experts claim that there is an extremely high error rate in telecommunications billing. This means for every ten invoices you receive, there could be an error on 8 of them. MyWorkplace has found that roughly 30% of those errors are significant enough to be worth fixing. Here are just a few things that can go wrong: calls may not be billed at the proper rate, fees can be assessed for unnecessary services, and all of your lines may not be routed to your selected long distance carrier. We have found many organizations are paying for expensive services they didn't use; others discovered they were paying too much because they never negotiated or re-negotiated their contract. The worse part: many of these overcharges go on indefinitely, if they are not identified and corrected. Because the stakes are so high, and the task of performing an audit so specialized, it makes good business sense to have an experienced telecom consultant like MyWorkplace conduct your telecom audit.
