Your operational procedures concerning telecom management are identified for the benefit of the entire organisation. This makes it easier for you to enforce those procedures and to:

  • monitor unauthorised calls
  • confront employees about inappropriate use

Unused outstanding services

Many companies see employees come and go. They have unused telephone lines. Offices are expanded or reduced in size, but the unused telecommunication facilities are not adequately disconnected. The result is a lot of unused capacity for which your telecom provider continues to charge you every month. You gain control over:

  • Unused mobile and fixed telephone numbers
  • Invoiced amounts relating to unused services
  • Unused mobile telephone numbers
  • Unused internet connections
  • Employees no longer employed by you but for whom you still have to pay
  • Hosting costs for unused applications
  • Zero use of mobile telephones is identified

Inventory clearing

If you pay for unused telecom services, you pay too much. You can certainly save money in this respect. Achieving these savings is only possible with a well-charted telecommunications infrastructure.

  • We draw up an inventory of your current telecommunications infrastructure
  • We chart everything for you
  • We discontinue unused telecom services
  • We optimise on a permanent basis, so that you always have control over expenditure and usage.
