We have proven ourselves for reducing costs of mobile telephony contracts significantly - these contracts had an average anual value of € 500.000. By executing strong commercial negotiations on behalf our clients (large corporates), we achieved costs savings up to 60%. Since contracts for mobile telephony are usually for 2 years, cost savings can be achieved in a relatively short time.
Migrating for fixed telephony is more difficult and comes with substantial costs. Usually, organisations have 5-year contracts in place and we should take into account the existing infrastructure in (old) buildings as well. Waiting for the PBX to reach end-of-life can be delaying the switch to a better use of fixed telephony.
The use of Unified Communications, like Skype and Google Hangouts, is often actively promoted by HR since using these tools will reduce the physical travel ánd use of mobile telephony of employees. However, a high quality is required for achieving a high user adoption. Therefore, we aim for increasing the "internet-side" of Unified Communications. By using a strong Configuration Management Database (CDMB), we can focus on price when sourcing for new suppliers.
Using a great deal of - different - subscriptions, multiple providers, local versus global contracts and fluctuating usage of employees results in a substantial amount of data. This is even more when combined with periodic reports from fixed telephony usage and contracts with suppliers for cloud systems, data centers and other forms of growing cloud storage and bandwidth usage.
Our offer is to execute an opportunity scan. We will analyse all your internal data from mobile, fixed telephony and Unified Communications and present our advice for a better use of technologies and their corresponding providers, suppliers and partners. While doing this, we have a strong focus on cost savings.
