AUDIT SERVICES

Why is it important to conduct a telecommunications audit of your telecom services? A telecom audit will help you understand exactly what services you have and how much you are paying for them. An audit can identify services that are no longer needed, telecom services that may be going to locations that have been closed for years, or lines and circuits not in use. A telecom bill audit can enable you to see more efficient ways to design your company’s network, resulting in a HUGE telecom cost reduction. Our average customer has savings of over 25%. We put money back into your company’s pocket!

Audit Process:

  • Gather copies of all your telecom invoices
  • Prepare a telecom contract/vendor list
  • Get copies of all telecom Carrier Records
  • Create database of all lines, trunks, features, etc. and the costs associated with your telecom inventory management
  • Provide recommendations for telecom consolidation, correction, or elimination
  • Prepare telecom design recommendations to optimize network
