How’s does Telecom Expense auditing oversight impact your business?

Telecom has traditionally been one of the largest, most challenging, complex and poorly managed corporate expenses to fully manage at most companies; in fact, from a Aberdeen study, 85% of telecom invoices are not audited….”  

Furthermore, it is estimated telecom can be an organization’s 3rd to 4th largest non-core spend.  But, no doubt, telecommunication provisioning and billing is hugely complicated, resulting in tremendous operating cash flow losses.  For example, there are a multitude of hands and departments that touch an order and each line or # can have as many as 20 line items to manually type in with complex codes and product identifiers. The probability of over charges per-line is huge.  Multiply that by how many lines/services your business has at one location or many sites.

Across the board business challenges

In our “move now” and “business is not business as usual” world, however,  SMBs’ I.T. departments and/or purchasing departments simply do not have the people, resources, expertise, know-how, nor a full time staff to audit their telecom services.  Businesses are leaving up to 60% of their spend every month on the table. Plus the previous months you have been over billed; it is literally thousands of dollars.

Fantastic news!   Strato Communications are experts in this arena.  Strato’s telecom Expense Management (TEM) services are a key offering within our Telecommunication Engagement Management suite of services.
