Is your firm eager to explore Mobile Data Pooling?
Well, a word of caution before you make the plunge.
As they say, “You can’t manage what you can’t measure”, and many firms are finding that they don’t have reliable data on what their current wireless plans cost, let alone the assurance that they have optimized as much as possible. Thus, making the decision as to whether data pooling will save any money is difficult, if not impossible.
If you don’t have accurate, up-to-date information on your current wireless situation, it’s time to do your homework. Mobile optimizing means finding out what mobile devices you have, who has it, what you pay for it, do you need it, and how are those needs likely to change in the near future.
With that data in hand, you’ll be much better prepared to determine what new plans might best suit your environment, and what will provide the best value for the money. And if you don’t have expertise in house to manage this, wireless optimization is a prime candidate for outsourcing.
Experienced telecom auditors know how to assemble and review the necessary data, what to look for once they have it, and what kinds of recommendations to make. It is recommended that you do a strong optimization review before your contracts come due, especially if you plan to do an RFP and contract negotiation project. Knowing where you are, and where you want to go, makes you a much stronger adversary at the negotiation table.
