Why do companies go this route? Oftentimes, when new services are added the old services are not cancelled. The result is a patchwork of outdated services spread across a myriad of different bills.
Consolidating these services seems like the obvious solution, but is not as easy in practice. Many companies find it beneficial to hire a telecom cost consultant to wade through the pile of bills. A professional can make valuable suggestions on the most efficient way to cut the fat.
However, if the services themselves have become outdated, you won’t really be solving the problem until you simplify your business communications. If you want to get serious about efficient business communications, you should eliminate your old, outdated phone system and switch to a modern, cost-effective business communications and data network solution.
