Reviewing your networks and service plans could save you 20 percent on communications
If you are looking for ways to save money and strengthen your bottom line, a telecommunications service review could be the money-saving opportunity your are looking for. Our results vary from client to client, but often we can help you achieve a 20 percent savings without compromising service.
For instance it is not unusual to find that 10 percent of telecom service expenses are charged in error. As part of our telecommunications service review and consulting process we are able to recover past overpayments. We’ll also drill deep into your billing and call data to uncover immediate savings. Many times our clients see savings between 15 and 20 percent without switching carriers.
“Phone bills and systems can be very confusing. When you talk to the phone company, you can never be sure if they have your best interest in mind. Plante Moran helped us cut through the red tape, understand the technical jargon, and how our system operates. We were able to achieve immediate savings by implementing their recommendations. In addition, we have greater knowledge to help us implement strategic planning, enhance service, and cut costs as our phone system evolves in the future.”

Our telecommunications consultants can help you tighten your telecom budget
Our telecommunication consultants will also help you optimize existing networks and reduce future costs. As part of the telecommunications service review, we will analyze your network for optimum performance and lowest cost. If you think you need a costly network upgrade, think again. Often, a reconfiguration of the network can help you get the most of your current system and make an upgrade unnecessary. But if you do need an upgrade, we can design a low-cost solution that meets your needs and allows for future growth.

We’ll help make sure your vendors are integrating your telecom strategy with your overall business strategy.
