Businesses lose billions of dollars to unnecessary overcharges and errors from their telephone companies. Yet, as telecom audit pros, we continue to get many new clients that have left their network and billing unattended, at the complete mercy of the phone company. Be suspicious, don’t leave your telecom carrier alone to manage your telecom products or think that they’ll accurately bill your company. It’s like letting the fox guard the hen house! It is like letting your toothbrush manufacturer police your teeth and tell you when its time for a new toothbrush! Nevertheless, for many company comptrollers and CFO’s, they just don’t see the return on investment for someone watching their phone bills. Wrong! Someone needs to watch your telephone bills carefully and it can be done very economically with a telecom audit that effectively works with no out-of-pocket cost to you.
Some actual examples of blatant overbilling and errors by carriers found by our BottaBoom telecom audit experts in the recent past are as follows:
- A government housing authority that was over-billed on their Centrex rates by thousands of dollars.
- A credit union that was not being billed as a tax exempt entity for over 10 years.
- An American Indian gaming organization overbilled for two data circuits for over five years, overbilled by $275,000.
- A national I.T. company using the wrong cell phone data and calling plans (as recommended by their carrier), overbilled by $160,000.
If you suspect that your company is being overbilled by the telecom carriers you most likely are. Contact the telecom audit pros today to get a cost savings project going at 1-888-487-5326
