TEM Contract Services
NEGOTIATION & RFPS
Telecom carriers are in business to make money and since most contracts are for several years, they can take more of it than they should, for a very long time, if you don’t negotiate your telecom pricing well.
We’ve been helping firms save money on IT expenses for decades, and a big piece of that savings comes from getting the best deal in the first place. Our telecom expense management software, Clearview, can help you gain visibility and control your telecom and IT expenses, so you are prepared next time you step up to the negotiating table.
You can involve us on a variety of levels. Some clients prefer to leverage Valicom as a consultant to bounce ideas off of, while others hand us the entire negotiation. We’ll put our TEM experts in the ring who have years of experience and a working knowledge of what is possible. In other words, they not only know how low the carriers can go, but they also know how to fight smart.
We’ll help you prepare, distribute and analyze the results of a telecom RFP specific to your needs. By comparing multiple carriers’ offers, we’ll put together the best TEM strategy to minimize your spend while optimizing features and flexibility.
What is Telecom Benchmarking?
BENCH·MARK – NOUN
A STANDARD BY WHICH SOMETHING CAN BE MEASURED OR JUDGED.
In other words, how much should this telecom item cost us?
When you’re trying to price telecom services, benchmarking data is well worth the effort. This data provides a clear picture of where your services should be from a pricing standpoint, and helps you make RFP savings estimates by service type. This allows you to decide where to apply the most effort during the RFP and telecom contract negotiations to make strategic cost reductions.
Telecom benchmarking supports the best practice of having a goal for what you want your pricing and contracts to look like when the RFP is over. That is hard to do if you don’t know what you could be saving.
The bottom line…
Benchmarking is a key part of effective telecom expense management. Don’t go into your next contract negotiation blind!
