Have you ever heard the definition of Insanity?

Businesses live this everyday and do not even realize it. Especially, when it comes to true telecom expense control. Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Think about this quote for a second and ask yourself if this quote applies to the way you run your company.

Does this apply to the way you run telecom expenses? When was the last time you actually performed a telecom audit? If you are manually auditing telecom invoices and manually attempting to interpret your wireless or cell phone charges then you too could join the insanity club.

Knowing how much time your organization spends on telecom expense management activities is the first step in being able to reduce telecom expenses. Wouldn’t it be refreshing to have automated telecom auditing that takes industry best practices and proactively alerts you directly to a billing issue or cost savings opportunity? Being aware of your options is half the battle and will keep you OUT of the insanity club.
