TELECOM BENCHMARKING AND CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS

The consultants of A&B Groep do not work on a commission basis! You pay for the services provided by A&B Groep. This independent position enables us to remain objective and alert and to therefore deal with all contract negotiations on your behalf.

Did you conclude a contract with your provider several years ago? At the time you most likely negotiated the best possible conditions available to you, but organisations change. Employees come and go. You have meanwhile perhaps increased the number of smartphones and corresponding subscriptions. The capacity of data networks also changes as time goes by. And what about your fixed telephony (fixed voice/data)? In the telecom optimisation phase we look into the options you have of (re)negotiating your current telecom contracts and to use RFP & RFI procedures to realise entirely new contracts.

In this phase

  • We collect all relevant data (charting your current telecom situation)
  • We jointly formulate your strategy and compile a (wish) list of requirements.
  • We prepare the RFI & RFP and perform these procedures on your behalf.
  • We ensure that all conditions are in line with market conditions
  • We ensure that the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that benefit your organization will be added to your new contract.

With all of the above data collected, we:

  • optimise your current contracts
  • benchmark your current contracts
  • Re-negotiate your current contracts (if possible)
  • perform RFI & RFP procedures (Request for Proposal and Request for Information)
  • Negotiate new contracts
 

HAVE YOU EVER ASKED YOURSELF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS?

  • I already have a contract with my provider, but can it be optimised?
  • During negotiations, the negotiators of the provider offer me discounts. But how do these discounts (and guarantees) compare to what is the market norm?
  • Which agreements would other, comparable, organisations have made in this respect?
  • My provider has already issued an offer. Does that offer provide what is best for my organisation?
  • What guarantee do I have that this offer or agreement is in line with market conditions?
  • I have heard of Flat-fee constructions. Is that what my company needs?
