You have a (long-term) contract with your provider. Perhaps you have received offers to compare. How do you know whether they are in line with market conditions? Are the commercial conditions competitive? Does the contract fit the telecom behaviour of your organisation? Is the provided solution up to date in terms of technology? We understand the telecommunications market better than anyone else. We apply benchmarking, RFI- and RFP-procedures (Request for Information and Request for Proposal) to select the best provider, the best solution and the best contract for you. Read what Marc Paschedag from Rabo Vastgoedgroep has to say.
Prominent role in benchmark project
Marc Paschedag, ICT Services Contract Manager at Rabo Vastgoedgroep: “We met A&B Groep during an earlier large-scale benchmark project that was being conducted for a large multinational. The purpose of the project was to provide insight into the suppliers from which the various business units and subsidiaries purchased their telecom services and at which prices. A&B Groep played a prominent role in this project and demonstrated a pragmatic, no-nonsense approach and extensive professional expertise.”
Testing services for market conformity
Marc Paschedag: “The Rabo Vastgoedgroep needed to test a services package which we purchase from a large telecom provider for market conformity. With all of its expertise, A&B Groep was able to provide up-to-date price information on various components. In part assisted by a consultant of A&B Groep, we then conducted negotiations with our current provider.
Strong position during negotiations
Marc Paschedag: “The benchmark conducted by A&B Groep confirmed what we already thought, namely that telecom expenses were not in line with market conditions. This knowledge strengthened our position during the final round of negotiations with the telecom provider. In the end we achieved significant savings.”
“Subsequent cooperation only logical”
Marc Paschedag: “We recently concluded a Telecom Expense Management agreement with A&B Groep. TEM now enables us to gain insight into our telecom expenses at both user and organisational level. With these new data we can now, among other things, re-assess and optimise the number of mobile subscriptions. Our decision to continue our cooperation with A&B Groep stems from our satisfaction with previous results.
