 Common Telecom Mistakes

    1. Not knowing what devices you are paying for
      • Do you actually know what devices your employees are using?
      • Are they on Smartphones (or Superphones), Blackberrys, Iphones, Ipads, Air cards or cell phones?
      • How many do you have of each in your fleet?
    2. Not researching the most productive “work” devices
      • What do your employees use their devices for?
      • Are they doing conference calls? Texting? BBM-ing? Emails? Social Networking? Listening to music?
      • Have you recently polled some employees as to what device would best work for their job?
      • Have you looked at what`s new and exciting in the industry? A new device could boost work-productivity.
  1. Not knowing what features would actually save the company money
    • What are your company trends in long distance charges?
    • What are your text messaging costs on a monthly basis?
    • Who is travelling and being charged high roaming charges?
  1. Negotiating a great contract with wireless providers
    • Is the contract with your wireless provider(s) almost due? NOW is the time to review it – and negotiate a new one.
    • Ever thought of putting together an RFP in order to get the best possible deal out there?
    • Knowing the devices “out-there” as well as what your employees need, and use as features, could actually be a huge cost-savings for your company.
  2. Cost-watching
    • Your bill arrives, you pay it. No questions asked. Well, you do review it…. Briefly. Who has the time?!
