As basic cell phones are being replaced throughout organizations with portable computing devices like i-phones and blackberries, productivity is increasing but so are the cell bills that go along with these new devices. CFO’s and CIO’s across the fruited plain are wondering how to allocate these expenses since most are not using these devices as a replacement to laptop and desktop computers but are adding these expenses to the already staggering technology costs incurred by most companies. Along with this cell bill cost explosion is an equal, if not greater, explosion in the complexity of these bills. What once was a confusing set of options and plans has become an indecipherable mess.
Some companies have chosen to addressed this issue by hiring a person or several people whose only job is to research and analyze the thousands of options and to proofread for errors the pages upon pages of bills they receive each month.
Others, not willing to go to the expense of hiring, just distribute the job to each department to review their own bills. Still others contract with outside firms, like the Bill Police, to negotiate contracts and audit monthly invoices. finding errors on your bill (over half of all bills have errors of one kind or another) is where most look for savings but matching the right plan for the way you use wireless technology can be just as important to both saving money and enhancing productivity. Reporting is another reason many companies outsource to firms like the Bill Police. With the complexity found in today’s invoices it makes sense to get outside analysis and straight forward reports that provide information you can use to make better decisions about your wireless plans and about your business in general.
Today there is a general trend toward simplifying and saving. Business, especially in the current economy, must find ways to simplify and save to continue to grow. By working with a firm whose total focus is on helping businesses simplify and save on their wireless expenditures, you can be freed to focus on what your business does best.
