Get Results with Cass Telecom Strategic Sourcing
Frequently negotiating your telecom contracts (every one to two years) and focusing on terms and conditions can make a considerable difference in business outcomes. According to AOTMP, a telecom consulting firm, organizations that focus most on terms and conditions when negotiating telecom contracts achieve a 200% gain in savings as compared to those who focused most on price. Additionally, organizations find that living with a contract for three years or longer can pose undue risks considering the rate at which prices drop and new technologies are introduced.
Most organizations are wise not to negotiate alone. In addition to telecom expense management services, Cass provides strategic telecom sourcing services for organizations that want to outsource the entire function or selectively offload certain telecom sourcing activities. The biggest advantage to using Cass is our ability to leverage our knowledge of market rates and today’s contract terms.
