How to Drastically Reduce Spend with a Phone Bill Audit


Many businesses are accustomed to using the end of year to eliminate unnecessary or overcharged telecom services.

Simultaneously you can search for refunds and lower rates for the coming new year. Are you aware that nearly one-fifth of the entire IT budget is spent on telecom services? Unfortunately, many organizations lack the time and expertise to determine if their bills are accurate. As a result, overcharges go un-detected costing the business thousands of dollars every year.

A phone bill audit can help you understand what services you have, how much you are paying for them, and what is no longer needed. Ultimately, a phone bill audit will show a more efficient way to design your company's network. Allowing a telecom expense management service provider to conduct a comprehensive and on-going audit phone bill audit can be quite beneficial! Let’s take a look at how:

Your current telecom environment and expense management processes are critically analyzed to ensure your business is being billed accurately.

Auditors will review your existing contracts and telecom billing to uncover all billing errors, eliminate unused services and recover credits for recharges.

Step 4 – Recommendations
