Your telecom contract is the starting point for savings
Buying or Replacing Your Phone System? Time to Contact a Telecom Consultant!
It can be a challenge and very confusing – hardware based, VoIP, cloud, wireless only, all different in capability, functionality and cost. Because there are so many choices, you need to make sure that the system is designed properly to meet your needs today and in the future. Accurately predicting what the future will bring in your organization is difficult enough without trying to match that need against the ongoing changes in technology. The best way to achieve the objective of getting what works best for you is to hire an experienced, independent telecom consultant who is well versed in assessing the need, evaluating the alternatives, procuring the system, managing telecom contract negotiations and implementing the most appropriate solution. Being independent allows us to focus on what’s right for you without any hidden agendas. This is a cornerstone of our practice, which is a significant attribute when selecting a telecom consultant.
Fortune Consulting has Helped Hundreds of Companies Install Business Phone Systems
Purchasing and installing a phone system means making a lot of important telecom cost management decisions that need to be based on fact, not guesswork. What features do you need today? What special needs do you have? Can you simply expand your old system or should you replace old technology from the ground up? How does wireless, VoIP and cloud fit in or replace what you have? How do you know which supplier will do the best job? Most organizations don’t have the in-house talent to answer these questions and then follow through with the design, procurement and installation of a new phone system. And because of the large number of equipment choices and technical methodologies, it is unrealistic to look to suppliers for impartial advice.
