Telecommunications Audit

Reviewing your communications contracts and bills can result in a 20 percent savings

Looking for ways to cut costs? We suggest a telecommunications audit and service review by our team of experts. Our results vary from client to client, but often they achieve more than a 20 percent savings without compromising service. 

Proven cost-reduction strategies

During the telecommunications audit, our telecommunications specialists will look at your current usage and future needs. They will identify: 

  • Services you are being billed for but don’t use 
  • Improper long distance selection 
  • Underutilized or unnecessary circuits

In this time of controlling expenses, don’t let extraneous charges end up on your bills. Our telecom specialists have found approximately 10 percent of telecom service expenses are charged in error. As part of our process we are able to recover past overpayments. We’ll also drill deep into your billing and call data to uncover immediate savings. After a telecommunications audit, many times our clients see savings between 15 and 20 percent without switching carriers. 


We can help you tighten your telecom budget

Our telecommunications specialists can also help you optimize existing networks and reduce future costs. As part of the telecommunications service review, they will analyze your network for optimum performance and lowest cost. If you think you need a costly network upgrade, think again. Often, our telecommunications specialists can find a way to reconfigure your current system making 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. 

Help negotiating the lowest possible rates

You will also benefit from our experience negotiating for communications services. We can help you negotiate the lowest possible rates and tariffs. We’ve negotiated hundreds of contracts and can get you the best possible terms, including tightening service level agreements to your advantage. We’ll make sure your vendors are integrating your telecom strategy with your overall business strategy.

"If someone were to call me and ask what Plante Moran's technology specialists meant to the success of our video surveillance project, I'd begin by pointing out that they saved us more than 50 percent in vendor costs. Beyond that they gave us a sense of confidence that we were selecting the best new products to fit the needs of our district. They began working with us when we only had six buildings under surveillance, now we have all 29 of our buildings covered, utilizing the old equipment and supplementing it with new. I would say the Plante & Moran specialists I worked with are worth their weight in gold."
