Auditing your telecom expenses is the first step to understanding how to control your company’s communications costs. According to analysts, 85% of the telecom invoices customers receive from vendors have billing errors, costing organizations up to 12% of their annual telecom expenses in inflated costs.
Working with the vendors to negotiate refunds for overbilling is often a very long and drawn-out process. In our experience, organizations that perform their own telecom audits can expect to cut expenses by 3-5% provided they have the learned knowledge, expertise, enough resources focused on the task, access to their provider tariffs, and effective negotiation skills to recover money from carriers.
