It’s common for large companies to use familiar mobile networks to power their employee’s business-only cell phones. In doing so, workers are able to communicate more effectively and tackle everyday challenges between offices and work locations. It is expected that this communication comes at no cost to the employees themselves. This, of course, poses a major expense for companies that supply these services.
In the case of one of our clients, a construction company, over 718 mobile devices between two major carriers (Verizon and AT&T) are used daily. For them, it’s vital for employees to communicate with each other without interruption, both for their own safety and safety of the structures they are working on. The monthly spend on these communication services prior to our review was $32,710. This was a small price to pay to ensure the all-around safety of their company. Our client thought nothing of it and sought savings in other areas.
Upon forensic review, we found some loop-holes in their mobile compliance contracts. This enabled us to provide savings through unpublished rate programs, new rate structures, and promotional discounts that they had not been made aware of. This resulted in a monthly savings of $12,016 and annual savings of $144,192.
This is only a portion of the total savings we found for this company. As we moved through their expense categories, we utilized the same strategies in all areas of their business operations. This was all done without changing providers, removing any devices, or interrupting services. We couldn’t be prouder of our team.
