How Much is Wireless Stealing From Your Bottom Line?
Sure, you probably have more important things to think about than your wireless cost…it’s not exactly an exciting topic. But think about it, how many other expenses have risen as quickly as wireless over the last 5 years? It’s easy to overlook considering the high levels of increased productivity that wireless mobility brings to a corporation. However, this increased productivity comes at a significant (and sometimes unnecessary) cost.
In fact, according to the CTIA, mid-year figures (U.S. only) show total revenues from wireless and data reached $202.6 billion. This is an increase of more than 55% in a mere 5 years.
Obviously, with new technology and increased usage, we expect costs to go up – it’s simple economics. Unfortunately, because of the increased complexity associated with wireless plans and programs many organizations are spending a lot more than necessary.
How much you ask? Most clients we’ve worked with were spending anywhere between 15-50% more than they should have been on their corporate wireless plans.
Companies who are taking advantage of all the productivity of 3G coverage, mobile browsing and email, are usually overspending $20 per phone, per month. From large organizations (and even small ones!) this can mean a big chunk of your wireless program’s (or department’s) budget every month is being unnecessarily wasted.
Not to toot our own horn or anything, but this is exactly why so many government, non-profit and corporate organizations have been so impressed with our wireless telecom expense management services. For most executives, it’s a no-brainer. Save 15-50% on wireless by letting The Bill Police® handle all my bills…where can I sign up!?
The real takeaway here is that no matter the size of your wireless program you should be continually optimizing and managing your billings. Most organizations find that is makes greater financial sense to outsource these duties, but even if you manage your wireless optimization and billings in house – or with another wireless management firm (gasp!) – you should still see your wireless costs drop significantly.
