Did you know that many small and mid-sized businesses overpay on their telecommunications without ever realizing it? Many businesses accept rates and packages at face value and feel as if they don’t have any bargaining power to negotiate. However, that isn’t the case at all. A carrier audit can identify where you are overpaying or underpaying and provide you with a telecommunications provider and package that you will actually use. Could your business benefit from a carrier audit?
What Is a Carrier Audit?
A carrier audit occurs whenever you use a third party, like McEnroe Voice & Data, to review your telecommunications bills and packages. These audits are designed to detect errors in your bills, parts of packages that might be going unused and areas where you are overpaying for what is being delivered. A carrier audit can also pinpoint differences between what you are paying for one provider’s services and what you could be paying for the same service from another provider.
3 Signs You Could Benefit from a Carrier Audit
- You Don’t Know Why You’re Paying What You’re Paying: When was the last time you thought critically about your telecommunications services? If you don’t know exactly what you are getting and why you chose that package, a carrier audit can help you to identify if you are really getting what you need. Signing up for a package fit for a mid-sized business when you’re a small business will lead to wasted money.
- You Only Got One Quote: Did you get quotes from multiple providers when setting up your telecommunications packages? If not, how do you know that you are getting the best service and the best rates? If you only got one quote, a carrier audit can secure quotes from numerous providers to make sure you’re working with the best possible one.
- It’s Been Two or More Years: In general, we recommend that businesses complete a carrier audit every two to three years. Telecommunications requirements and rates are constantly shifting, and a small time investment every 2-3 years could save you hundreds or thousands of dollars.
