|When was the last time you took a close look at
your company's phone bill?
We don't mean tracking down
employees making personal long distance calls on company time. We mean undertaking a
detailed review of your calling patterns, usage profile, and the
efficiency of your network.
An amazing number of businesses don't take advantage of the tremendous cost
savings available to them. They waste money in one of two ways:
- Overpaying for phone service from the carrier
- Running a badly designed phone network
You have options for phone service!
The days of the telephone monopoly are over. Deregulation has led to
the emergence of a wide range of low-cost, reliable carriers. Many
companies pay off-the-shelf rates without even realizing that they can choose a lower-cost
We'll look at all components of your past billings, including local service, long
distance, toll-free, pagers, faxes, and wireless. You'll be surprised at how
much you can save once you've clearly defined your needs and opened your service to
competitive bids. Grapevine specializes in negotiating the best phone
service contracts for its clients.
Design and implement a network that minimizes your costs
The other way to reduce your charges is to operate an efficient phone
network. Just as good insulation and temperature regulation systems control
your heating and air conditioning costs, a well-designed voice network and equipment
configuration will keep your phone charges down.
For example, if you have more than one facility, are you incurring phone company
charges for calls between each one? You could be dialing a four-digit extension
instead. Many companies waste a tremendous amount of money with badly configured
systems. The experts at Grapevine have designed and installed hundreds of systems
for companies of all sizes, and will create a solution that works for you.
